Supplemental Training Material
Tobacco Training and Working with Special Groups
In addition to the training we provide to centers, we offer additional training resources.
This training is brought to you by the Learning and Development Team at Integral Care in partnership with Taking Texas Tobacco Free and the University of Houston’s Health Research Institute. Partial funding for the development of this training is provided by the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas.
By the end of this forty-five minute module, you will be able to describe the impact of smoking and tobacco use on individuals living with mental illness, identify how quitting smoking improves physical, psychological, and financial well-being, outline the five A’s and the importance of screening for tobacco use, identify tobacco treatment methods, and list the benefits of tobacco free policies.
As you go through the training, you will be prompted to engage in interactive quizzes, and you will have a chance to apply your knowledge to a real-life scenario at the end. So let’s begin!
Below are a suite of videos for treating marginalized, minoritized, and other special groups for tobacco use disorder. If you click on the image, you will be taken to our external YouTube page to view them. Each video is designed by an expert who will discuss tobacco-related disparities in the featured group and provide tips for culturally-informed tobacco care. Additionally, the trauma-informed training video is of relevance for working with individuals in most of these groups.
Please enjoy these videos, made possible with funding provided by the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas and the Texas Department of State Health Services, and check back soon as we are constantly adding new material.
Please also complete the short survey (<1 minute) that follows the videos so we know who we are connecting with!
