The field of addictions is muddled with a myriad of theories and treatments, yet little progress has been made over time to improve relapse rates. Given the repetitive and persistent nature of addictions, mental health professions addressing such concerns are at increased risk for compassion fatigue and burnout. In order to reduce this risk on treatment providers, the workshop will focus on empowering workers by providing techniques to effectively address a variety of client presentations. Often default recommendations of attending inpatient care are provided to clients as professionals lack the tools to know how they can make positive impacts on a clients care at various stages of the recovery journey.
In this workshop, you will also be provided with tools to understand the complexity involved in the development of substance use disorder and thus be able to make effective treatment recommendations. Attendees will leave the workshop equipped with practical techniques for treating those struggling with addictions including basics of assessments, working with families, and providing post-treatment care. Additionally, various intervention methods will be overviewed including CBT and narrative therapy in order to provide the client with techniques to implement with a variety of client presentations.
