Psychologists, Psychotherapists, Counselors, Psychiatrists and Social Workers
Wednesday October 23rd, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Prevailing methods to address Substance Use Disorders (SUD’s) consistently result in poor outcomes, as current SUD treatment is neither adequate nor sufficient. Historically, clients with SUD’s have been marginalized and are often referred out to specialty providers or specific treatment settings. It has also been assumed that clients presenting with an SUD and a co-occurring disorder, such as anxiety or depression, should receive separate treatment for separate issues.
Current research has illustrated that the opposite is clinically indicated, which provides the rationale for this workshop. Outpatient providers who have expertise in evidence-based interventions and methods are equipped to understand and treat their client’s co-occurring SUD’s concurrently; they just don’t know it.
- The impact a primary anxiety disorder has on the development and maintenance of a substance use disorder
- How to conceptualize a treatment plan where both issues can be addressed concurrently
- Helpful skills that can be utilized in addressing both issues and unhelpful practices that may unintentionally reinforce a client’s problems
*This talk will also discuss using principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), a third wave form of CBT.
