2015 Directors’ Institute Training Series
This series is focused on new agency and program directors, but we welcome all to attend. Wisdom and expertise are gained not only through direct learning, but also by shared experience. The goal is to help all directors feel comfortable in your their role and develop a support network with others throughout the state. Depending on your previous experience, you may choose one or all of the sessions. It is strongly encouraged that at least two members of the leadership team from your agency attend so knowledge gained is not lost if a one person leaves.All sessions will be hosted at the Indiana Community Action Association, 1845 W 18th St, Indianapolis, IN (across the lot from ICADV) in Conference Room A. Registration is required so that we can get an accurate count. To register, simply follow the link below and select each session that you plan to attend.REGISTRATION: Click here to register

Indiana Running on Uppers; ADHD Meds and Other Stimulants
Facilitated by Dr Carla Gaff Clark
Dates and locations below
Individuals diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) as children are increasingly likely to continue receiving treatment—usually in the form of prescription stimulants—into their later teenage and young adult years. In addition, many people are also diagnosed with the condition during their high school and college years, which has led to a growing controversy over the extent of prescription stimulant use for ADHD. These concerns revolve around the notion that greater access to prescription-grade stimulants in the general population has led to a greater potential for their misuse in the families and members of the clients we serve.
During this training, we will look at the use and misuse of these and other stimulant drugs including cocaine and Meth. We will focus on recognizing the signs and symptoms of stimulant misuse, education on the risks and benefits of stimulant use, and opportunities for prevention of misuse.

  • Participants will recognize the increase in ADHD diagnosis history
  • Participants will name the meds used for ADHD
  • Participants will be able to explain the positive and negative effects of ADHD meds.
  • Participants will recognize the addictive nature of ADHD medications and how they are being abused.
  • Participants will understand how individuals addiction can escalate to stronger stimulants.

This training is free of charge unless the host agency charges an administrative fee to offset cost. To register, please contact the individual below. Continuing Education Credits are offered and all participants receive a Certificate of Participation for your records. Questions regarding the training itself can be directed to ICADV training coordinator Caryn Burton.
