Description

 

This training will provide an overview of the research supporting the clear linkage between traumatic exposures & substance abuse/addictions.  Discussion will include the treatment implications of viewing addictions solely as a brain disease vs. desperate attempt to cope with overwhelming pain and distress.  A “Trauma Informed Inventory” will be introduced as a framework that guides the development of skills and strategies to intervene with people who are “dually diagnosed”.   The importance of enhancing resiliency in service users by helping expand their circles of support will also be reviewed.

Date Recorded: October 24, 2017, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM (EDT)
