Participants must commit to and register for both days of this training to receive continuing education credits (CEUs).
Arguably the most important and often most challenging aspect of treatment of co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders (COD) can be found in the process of diagnostic assessment. Providers of clinical services utilize a wide and diverse spectrum of diagnostic assessment formats and templates, many of which are utilized with a lack of training and supervision for assessment clinicians.
All too often, diagnostic summaries contained in the clinical record reflect diagnoses and other information being reported with insufficient information gathered and presented to substantiate those conclusions. Ensuring comprehensive and adequately completion of the diagnostic assessment sets the stage for subsequent treatment services, and allows for the most effective treatment approaches to be considered and implemented accordingly.
Assessment is noted as a core competency for professionals who work with individuals with COD (SAMHSA TIP 42, TIP 52, and TAP 21), as well as an organizational core competency by standards identified in Dual Diagnosis Capability (DDC) tools (such as the DDC in Addiction Treatment/DDC in Mental Health Treatment) currently being applied around the United States.
This Event | Foundations of Integrated MH & SA Assessment
This two-day interactive training event is intended for clinicians charged with conducting comprehensive assessments for individuals with COD, and utilizes twelve core components of the assessment process outlined in Substance Abuse Treatment for Persons with Co-Occurring Disorders (SAMHSA TIP 42) as the means to enhance competencies for assessing clinicians. Participants will learn the essential considerations and skills associated with assessment proficiency and apply these skills with case studies that will be utilized throughout the training.
Participants in this training event will be able to...
