Advanced Addiction Counseling Skills

Explore the most recent evidence-based trends in addiction treatment and recovery support and examine the specific needs identified for female, male, LGBTQ+, rural, and criminal justice-involved clients. Sign Up Today!

Description

The world of substance use disorders, treatment, and recovery support is ever-changing, with emerging psychoactive substances, newer evidence-based practices and adjunct services, more sophisticated neuroscientific research, and the inclusion of peer recovery support services. Research and years of treatment have demonstrated that the diverse needs of specific populations must be taken into consideration during assessment and treatment planning in order for clients to benefit from services. Working with addictions is like putting together a complex, three-dimensional puzzle. There are a lot of moving parts, and many professionals do not receive training in the complexities of addictions.

The Advanced Addiction Counseling Skills Learning Path will explore the most recent evidence-based trends in addiction treatment and recovery support and examine the specific needs identified for female, male, LGBTQ+, rural, and criminal justice-involved clients. It will also explore integrated care and multidisciplinary care teams, stages of clinician development, and clinical supervision, as well as models of supervision.
