Just as CPR training helps a layperson without medical training assist an individual following a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid training helps an individual assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis. Evidence suggests Mental Health First Aid makes people feel more comfortable managing a crisis situation and builds mental health literacy &#8212; helping the public identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness. Specifically, studies found that those who trained in Mental Health First Aid have greater confidence in providing help to others, greater likelihood of advising people to seek professional help, improved concordance with health professionals about treatments, and decreased stigmatizing attitudes.

The DWDA allows terminally ill patients to legally obtain a physician&apos;s prescription to end life when death is expected within six months. The passage of the Act has led to intense public discussion and sparked sharp debate among health care professionals and the public at large. This change in the law has stimulated health care institutions and professionals to reexamine care offered to terminally ill patients and has led to improvements in palliative care across the state. At the same time, the Act is controversial among health care professionals as it diverges from the longstanding prohibition against &quot;assisted death.&quot; This lecture will explore these, and other issues related to &quot;death with dignity&quot; through a review of important insights from the Washington State experience.

But as these wars come to a close and the U.S. military continues to draw down its forces, many of these combat veterans are leaving the military and moving back to their respective communities, far away from military bases and a specialized health-care system designed to meet their distinct needs. As a result, more and more civilian providers are being called upon to care for this transitioning population, often doing so with a gap in training that is readily available to their military counterparts. With this in mind, it is the intent of this workshop to help fill in these gaps by providing essential information on working with combat veterans as they reintegrate back into the local community. &lt;br&gt; &lt;b&gt;Registration:&lt;/b&gt; To register for the Clinical Lecture Series in Winston-Salem, go to: &lt;a href=&quot;http://ssw.unc.edu/sswevents/ws-cls-2015&quot;&gt;http://ssw.unc.edu/sswevents/ws-cls-2015&lt;/a href&gt; &lt;br&gt; If you are a first time participant, click on [Step 1: New Visitors] to watch a short video on how to create an account and register.

Role theory is presented as one context through which this socialization process can be guided. Participants are encouraged to learn problem-solving mechanisms to cope with expected role conflict and promote conflict resolution. &lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Module II: Teaching and Learning Methodologies This module will examine teaching/learning methodologies including historical educational principles.
