Incorporating Knowledge and Techniques of Substance Abuse into Daily Practice
May 5 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm CDT$30
This workshop will review the competencies necessary for proper identification and treatment options for clients dealing with substance abuse concerns. Information will be provided on Substance Use Disorder concerns and symptoms. In addition, case examples will provide information about specific ways clients present themselves and the impact substance abuse can have on their mental health and daily life concerns. Finally, a discussion of appropriate skills will allow clinicians to walk away with the necessary tools and techniques for incorporating this knowledge into daily practice.
This presentation will use case examples to demonstrate specific tools and strategies and handouts for screening of substance abuse concerns. This presentation aims to encourage clinicians to develop competencies that enable them to better screen and intervene with substance use to ensure well-rounded care.
