NWATTC Webinar: Harnessing Your Expertise: How the Addiction Workforce Can Work with the Media to Improve Reporting on Addiction
Presented by: Ashton Marra and Jonathan Stoltman

Mainstream media perpetuates many problematic narratives about drug use and addiction that increase stigma, discrimination, and bad policy. One way to address these shortcomings is to increase the coverage of evidence-based approaches to addiction treatment and recovery. To do this, we need bridges between subject matter experts and the media. However, many experts are not trained to interact with journalists in today’s media environment. Thus, this workshop is designed to offer customized training to support interactions between addiction workforce members and the media. Topics covered include preparing for interviews and how to pitch ideas/op-eds to the media.

A few learning objectives:

- Identify stigma in the media
- Describe how to reduce stigma in media coverage
- Tangible tips you can use to improve your interactions and reporting in general
