Linda Segur’s 30 years professional experience working with families impacted by substance use disorder, poverty and mental health issues includes 14 years providing parenting education and “hands-on” support for Kitsap County Family and Adult Drug Court participants, 10 years as a Co-Occurring Disorders counselor with adults and adolescents working in the Kitsap Mental Health Pathways program and nearly 30 years as an Adjunct Instructor teaching in the Early Childhood, Adult Basic Education and WorkForce Development programs at Olympic College in Bremerton. In addition, she has been providing staff development training for fellow professionals throughout Washington State since 1992 on topics related to effective practices to build resiliency when working with families impacted by childhood, community and historic trauma. Her current position as Clinical Director of the Kitsap site of the University of Washington’s Parent Child Assistance Program (PCAP), has provided additional opportunities to apply research focused on the impact of early adversity to create informed and effective professional practices. Over the past several years, Linda has been a member of the Kitsap Strong educational cohort, sharing information and facilitating discussion on the exciting discoveries that have come with the expanding research and professional application of the NEAR (Neuroscience, Epigenetics, Adverse Childhood Experiences, Resilience) sciences. Her overarching goal remains to help all individuals, and particularly those also dealing with substance use, understand the impact of childhood adversity and move toward more stable lifestyles and parenting practices.
