In this 2-hour webinar, led by Dr. M. Evan Thomas, participants will be provided with an overview of rural communities and the unique culture that resides in them. Multiple studies conducted by the presenter will be discussed, and these studies have focused on: screening for substance misuse in rural communities, church leaders' experiences discussing mental health in rural communities, the unique language that some rural communities have to discuss their healthcare symptoms, and the use of Trauma-Informed Care in rural communities.
Based on the content of this session, participants will be able to:
- Understand unique characteristics of rural communities.
- Understand small changes that they can make when working in rural communities.
- Understand what evidenced-based practices are working in rural communities.
