      Abstract:  Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is an intensive, community-based team approach to providing behavioral health services. It's one of the most widely researched evidence-based practices, and was developed to support community integration and a greater level of independence for individuals with the most severe and persistent mental health and substance abuse challenges. ACT service providers possess a unique set of skills necessary to deliver the services prescribed by the model. Likewise, a successful ACT team requires a Team Leader with specific skills and experience necessary to facilitate the team's work on a daily basis. In this workshop participants will hear from a panel of experienced ACT Team Leaders, and learn what it takes to lead the provision of ACT services in accordance with the model.

      Learning Objectives:  Participants will be able to ...

      1. Describe the use of at least 2 ACT meeting tools commonly used in planning and organizing an ACT team's daily work.
      2. List two team-leader skills or characteristics that are useful in effective leadership of an ACT team.
      3. Describe one technique useful for creating and maintaining team cohesion on an ACT team.

      Presenter:  Deborah Myers, MEd, LPCC-SC (get bio).

      Abstract:  Person-driven care is a cornerstone of behavioral healthcare reform. Historically, behavioral healthcare services for individuals with severe and persistent mental illness and/or co-occurring substance use disorders have been rooted in traditional practitioner-driven approaches. It is common for organizations and practitioners to struggle as they attempt to navigate changing philosophies and clinical practices consistent with person-driven care. This workshop will contrast a traditional practitioner-driven approach with a more contemporary person-driven approach to care. Key aspects of a person-driven approach including assessment with shared-decision making as the foundation of recovery planning will be explored.

      Learning Objectives:  Participants will be able to ...

      1.) Contrast a traditional system approach versus a person-driven approach to care.
      2.) Describe elements of person-driven assessment.
      3.) Discuss Shared-Decision Making as a key process in person-driven recovery planning.

      Times:10:15 AM - 11:45 AM
      Location/s:Cleveland Airport Marriott (Conference 2016)
      Description:


      Presenter: 
      Deana Leber-George, MEd, LPCC-SC (get bio).

      Abstract:  This workshop will address the issue of trauma as it affects individual clients, clinicians, and systems of care. A history of trauma is extremely common in individuals presenting for mental health and/or substance use disorders treatment. Attention to trauma issues occurs on a continuum ranging from trauma-informed to trauma-sensitive to trauma-integrated. A trauma-informed approach seeks to raise awareness about trauma among all caregivers. A trauma-sensitive approach promotes screening and treatment methods that take past trauma into account, without re-traumatizing the client, and that fully integrates trauma issues into all aspects of care delivery especially through the use of specific models. This training will review key concepts and core principles of trauma-informed care and trauma-sensitive care and will explore practical ways for how providers can implement changes in programs, agencies, and related systems of care.

      Learning Objectives:  Participants will be able to ...

      1. Define trauma and its neurobiological basis, including its relationship to mental illness, substance use disorders, and medical illness.
      2. Describe trauma-informed and trauma-sensitive approaches to care in populations with mental illness and substance-use disorders.
      3. Identify strategies to increase the implementation of trauma-informed and trauma-sensitive approaches to care in behavioral health agencies and systems.

      Presenter:  Debra Hrouda, PhD, LISW-S (get bio), and Jennifer Collins-Lakner, PhD, LMFT (get bio).

      Abstract: 
      The impact of an Evidence Based Practice (EBP) can be assessed by measuring the outcomes for consumers receiving the services. In order to attribute those outcomes to the intervention, however, the degree to which the practice is delivered as designed must also be determined. This process typically involves the use of a fidelity measure developed to assess the presence and extent of critical components of the model.  This workshop will present specific fidelity measures for Assertive Community Treatment (ACT): the TMACT and the DACTS.

      Learning Objectives: 
      Participants will be able to ...

      1. Identify the critical components of ACT as defined and measured through fidelity.
      2. Understand the process and product of a fidelity assessment.
      3. Develop action plans to use the results of a fidelity review to improve their ACT teams.
      6. Efficiently write group notes.

      Description:


      Presenter: 
      Patrick Boyle, PhD, LISW-S, LICDC-CS (get bio).

      Abstract:  The recovery model suggests that provider treatment goals should encompass more than the reduction of symptoms for people with serious mental and substance use disorders. A Recovery perspectives encourage clients to work for improvements in many areas of their lives including housing, employment, education, and social relationships. Providers who work in a recovery framework also need to have expectations that clients can and will experience improvements across all of these life dimensions. Optimism for recovery is the provider's attitude that clients can achieve recovery and integration into the community and achieve more than merely symptom reduction. Building on the recovery model, social learning and cognitive behavioral theory, the aims of this workshop are to explore individual and team characteristics that are associated with levels of provider optimism about consumer recovery.

      Learning Objectives:  Participants will be able to ...

      1. Describe aspects of a cohesive treatment team.
      2. Describe elements of the optimistic provider.
      3. Identify the thinking process and behavior of the optimistic provider.
      4. Describe steps for hiring and training optimistic providers.

    Location/s:Cleveland Airport Marriott (Conference 2016)
    Description:

    You must register online for this keynote plenary and attend to receive CEUs for it.


    Keynote presenter:  Lorna Moser, PhD, HSPP, is director of the Institute for Best Practices within the University of North Carolina (UNC) Center for Excellence in Community Mental Health and is a licensed psychologist with specialized training in psychiatric rehabilitation and mental health services research. She is the co-developer of the Tool for Measurement of ACT (TMACT), a nationally recognized contemporary measure of ACT fidelity.

    Abstract: 
    Individuals challenged with serious mental illness have a long history of being disempowered and alienated, both within broader society, but also within the context of the service system. Recovery-oriented systems of care and practices are mindful of the dignity of risk and the importance of thriving, not just surviving. And yet, for the recovery journey to proceed, service providers and loved ones may at times need to step-in to assume some control when the illness has hijacked the person. In the end, the ultimate focus is on the person's interests and life goals.

    Learning Objectives: 
    Participants will be able to ...

    1. Name at least three core features of recovery-oriented services.
    2. Describe at least three considerations for whether an assertive outreach strategy should be tried at all.
    3. Identify red flags of concern for either paternalistic and/or clinically negligent service environments.

      Presenters:  Ric Kruszynski, MSSA, LISW, LICDC (get bio).

      Abstract:   The addictions field continues to advance in regards to the knowledge and skills necessary to deliver effective interventions for those in need of services to promote recovery. Included in these advancements are an increased understanding of dynamics that are essential to master in order to have the greatest possible impact on positive client outcomes, unique to particular cross-sections of the population. While the treatment technology associated with best results for addictions treatment among individuals with a severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI) has been better understood and articulated for several decades, persistent misunderstanding of the needs of this population and the nuances of service delivery are still pervasive in many treatment settings. This session will highlight ten considerations that are essential for programs that are providing treatment to individuals with SPMI and the role of those considerations in service delivery.

      Learning Objectives:  Participants will be able to ...

      1. Explain the conceptual framework associated with the Quadrant Model of Co-Occurring Disorders.
      2. Describe ten unique considerations for AOD treatment with individuals diagnosed with an SPMI.
      3. Recognize necessary modifications to "treatment as usual" that are essential to effective work with individuals who have an SPMI.

      Times:10:45 AM - 12:15 PM
      Location/s:Cleveland Airport Marriott (Conference 2016)
      Description:

      This workshop has been approved for pharmacy credits (see below).


      Presenter:  Margaret Baughman, PhD, and Mark Singer PhD.

      Abstract:  
      Opiate addiction has quickly become a national crisis, as communities are seeing the number deaths from drug overdoses overtake those from car accidents. Ohio launched key initiatives that are making a difference in the effectiveness of Ohio's drug courts. The Ohio legislature granted $5 million dollars to the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) for an Addiction Treatment Pilot Program (ATPP). This program provides treatment, including medication-assisted treatment (Naltrexone or Suboxone), to addicted offenders participating in one of seven designated certified drug courts. Evaluation researchers will discuss how to successfully implement a multi-city, multi-county research design to evaluate the use of MAT in a community-controlled court experience. The development of a website data tracking system will be introduced along with ‘lessons learned' from their qualitative interviews of judges, magistrates and drug court teams representing the 10 courts participating in the 18-month evaluation project. Case Western Reserve Researchers will present ATPP findings, client profile, the effect of Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), most utilized services, and how these clients differ from the ‘traditional' drug court participants. The ATPP findings have implications for state legislatures, courts, law enforcement, treatment systems, addiction advocates, criminologists and public health personnel.

      Learning Objectives: 
      Participants will be able to ...

      1. Identify the key elements comprising a state-side specialty court medication assisted treatment evaluation.
      2. Describe the strengths and limitations of Ohio's Addiction Treatment Pilot Program (ATPP) data suggesting the effectiveness of Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for opiate/heroin addicted drug court participants.
      3. Compare facilitators and barriers for implementing a coordinated state-wide opiate addiction focused initiative.

      Description:
      Presenters: 
      Elizabeth Tracy, PhD, LISW, and Leigh Taylor, MSW.

      Abstract: 
      Establishing support from network resources is often a component of Evidence Based Practices services for women with dual disorders. However, helping women make changes in their personal networks so the network is supportive in positive ways during treatment and recovery can be a challenge. Women typically enter treatment with little personal network support for sobriety and their networks include many substance using network members. This workshop will present findings and practice implications of a federally funded longitudinal study examining women's personal networks over time to see if networks changed or stayed the same following a treatment episode, and how networks helped, or did not help, support sobriety and recovery. The study examined changes in network composition, the types of support provided and network structure. We found that women who participated in the study learned over time that a women's recovery could be measured, as one participant noted, "by the company she keeps". In this presentation ways to assess personal networks will be described along with practice implications for helping women to build personal networks supportive of recovery.

      Learning Objectives: 
      Participants will be able to ...
      1. Describe the role of personal social networks in supporting women's treatment outcomes and recovery.
      2. Identify ways to assess network composition, support and structure.
      3. List strategies for helping women to build personal networks supportive of recovery.

      Abstract:   The Triple Aim of healthcare seeks to balance health outcomes, the experience of care, and costs. In addition, policy-makers, accreditation bodies and funders are examining these three domains. With value-based payments on the horizon, more attention is being paid to actual outcomes of care. Evidence-based practices have always had at their core a high value on consumer outcomes. And, oh, by the way, isn't that the whole point of our services - to help people achieve their goals? Participants in this workshop will discuss the what and how of not just collecting outcomes but using them with staff and consumers to improve quality and achieve the Triple Aim. Participants are encouraged to bring examples of forms and/or reports they currently use at their organization.

      Learning Objectives:  Participants will be able to ...

      1. Identify existing and/or missing outcomes and indicators relevant to existing services.
      2. Recognize the role and function of supervision in accountable care.
      3. Describe ways to use information in individual and group supervision.
      4. Describe ways to use information with consumers to achieve recovery goals.

      Times:1:15 PM - 4:30 PM
      Location/s:Cleveland Airport Marriott (Conference 2016)
      Description:


      Presenter:  James Portner, MSW, LISW, and Nick Tomcik, PhD.

      Abstract: 
      Self-control, the ability to inhibit competing urges, impulses, or behaviors is highly valued by most societies. However, excessive self-control has been linked to social isolation, aloof interpersonal functioning, maladaptive perfectionism, constricted emotional expressions, and difficult-to-treat mental health problems, such as anorexia nervosa, obsessive compulsive personality disorder and refractory depression. Based on 19 years of research, two NIMH funded randomized controlled trials (RCTs) with refractory depression, an open-trial with adult anorexia nervosa, and a large ongoing multi-site RCT (http://www.reframed.org.uk) the aim of this workshop is to introduce clinicians to the theoretical foundations and new skills underlying Radically Open-Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO-DBT) for disorders of overcontrol (treatment manual pending; Guilford Press).

      While resting on many of the core principles of standard DBT, the therapeutic strategies in RO-DBT are substantially different. For example, RO-DBT contends that emotional loneliness represents the core problem for overcontrol, not emotion dysregulation. The biosocial theory for overcontrol posits that heightened threat sensitivity and diminished reward sensitivity transact with early family experiences emphasizing "mistakes as intolerable" and "self-control as imperative" to result in an overcontrolled coping style that limits opportunities to learn new skills and exploit positive social reinforcers. A novel thesis linking the communicative functions of emotional expression to the formation of close social bonds will be introduced, as well as new skills emphasizing receptivity, self-enquiry and flexible responding. New approaches designed to activate a neurobiological-based social-safety system, signal cooperation, encourage genuine self-disclosure, practice loving-kindness, and change unhelpful envy/bitterness will be introduced using slides, handouts, video clips, and role plays.

      Learning Objectives: 
      Participants will be able to ...

      1. Explain a new biosocial theory for OC.
      2. Describe the RO-DBT treatment structure.
      3. Describe new RO-DBT treatment strategies designed to enhance willingness for self-inquiry and flexible responding.
      4. Describe the RO-DBT treatment hierarchy.
      5. Describe a novel treatment mechanism positing open expression = trust = social connectedness.
      6. List examples of strategies designed to improve pro-social cooperative signaling via activation of the parasympathetic nervous system's social-safety system.

      Abstract:  Project Newborn is a longitudinal study of prenatal cocaine/polydrug exposure funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse begun at the height of the crack cocaine epidemic (1994). Children and their mothers were assessed regularly through adolescence on many developmental outcomes to understand the specific neurobehavioral effects of prenatal cocaine exposure. A pattern of findings indicate that after controlling for many environmental factors including exposure to violence, caregiver functioning, lead poisoning indicate that prenatally cocaine exposed children have more externalizing behavior, poorer executive function and language delay than similar non-cocaine exposed peers. These findings will be summarized and their implication for clinical practice, assessment and intervention will be explored.

      Learning Objectives:  Participants will be able to ...

      1. Explain complex biologic and environmental factors associated with prenatal cocaine/polydrug exposed children.
      2. Summarize major findings of study of prenatal cocaine exposure from birth through adolescence.
      3. Translate study findings for implications in clinical practice.
      4. Apply study findings to improve assessment and intervention methods.

      Abstract: 
      SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment) is a public health approach to the delivery of early intervention and treatment services for people with substance use disorders and those at risk of developing these disorders. Many different community settings provide opportunities for early intervention with at-risk substance users before more severe consequences occur. Adding any new approach to an existing workflow is not as simple as turning on codes in an EHR and sending out a memo on how to do it. This workshop will provide an overview of the SBIRT approach and discuss strategies to successfully implement SBIRT in a variety of clinical settings. Participants will learn about specific methods employed--and changes along the way--to install SBIRT into an FQHC as part of efforts to enhance integration of primary and behavioral health care.

      Learning Objectives: 
      Participants will be able to ...

      1. List and describe the major components of the SBIRT approach.
      2. Discuss strategies to successfully implement SBIRT in medical, mental health, and other clinical settings.
      3. Identify potential next steps they can take to add SBIRT in their setting.

      Abstract:  Cognitive behavioral therapy approaches (CBT) have helped people with a wide range of illnesses and behaviors achieve relief, remission and/or recovery. The practice involves working with people to increase their understanding of how thoughts, behaviors and emotions play a role in their reactions to stressful life events. CBT has a long history of application for people with substance use disorders (SUD). In recent years, greater focus has been placed on utilizing these concepts for those with severe and persistent mental illnesses. Staff members of intensive treatment teams help people with SPMI and/or co-occurring SUD navigate reactions to life events on a daily basis. Yet, staff often do not feel prepared with the range of clinical skills needed to effectively recognize and help people respond in a way that promotes recovery. Participants in this workshop will be reminded of the importance of attending to a person's readiness in preparation for cognitive behavioral work. They will learn about the historical use of CBT in treatment, its basic concepts and how it serves as a valuable adjunct to the daily work of intensive treatment team staff. This brief workshop is intended to provide a basic overview of CBT for members of ACT and IDDT teams who are interested in preparing more in-depth practice-oriented training opportunities in the future.

      Learning Objectives:  Participants will be able to ...

      1. Explain the importance of building readiness to change in preparation for cognitive behavioral interventions.
      2. Describe the development of the CBT model, including its core philosophy and elements.
      3. Explain the key reasons and concepts involved in utilizing cognitive behavioral approaches with people experiencing mental illness and co-occurring substance use disorders.

      Description:

       

      This workshop has been approved for pharmacy credits (see below).


      Presenters:  Debra Hrouda, PhD, LISW-S (get bio).

      Abstract:  Care coordination/management is a set of activities necessary to provide a whole health approach to care. The purpose of this coordination/management is to ensure the patient's needs are being met while avoiding service fragmentation. Patients with chronic health conditions typically require test, referrals, regular follow-up, periodic changes to prescription regimens, and varying levels of care as conditions change. Care coordination seeks to eliminate the fragmentation of care and information that has traditionally been associated with the healthcare experience of patients with multiple chronic conditions. This workshop will describe models, methods, and approaches to care coordination in a variety of settings.

      Learning Objectives:  Participants will be able to ...

      1. Identify areas of care coordination needs within their setting or practice.
      2. Describe at least one method of care coordination that could be utilized in their organization.
      3. Identify a plan to implement at least one method of care coordination they could utilize in their setting.
