THE NHADACA ANNUAL MEETING & PRESENTATION: 
PSYCHOPHARMACOLOGY OF CO-OCCURRING DISORDERS   


Friday, November 21, 2014
8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. (registration begins at 7:30 a.m.)
at Manchester Country Club, 180 South River Road, Bedford, NH


THE ANNUAL BUSINESS MEETING:  The New Hampshire Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors Association will
meet for their Annual Business Meeting.  All interested persons are welcome to attend.  Association business will include updates and exciting changes within NHADACA, professional and community recognition awards and board of director election results.  Following the meeting will be a 4 hour presentation. 

THE PRESENTATION:  
For many years those of us charged with treating addicts believed that taking medication would interfere with their sobriety.  New brain imaging techniques as well as improved psychiatric medications now enable us to treat an underlying mental illness without either exacerbating the addiction or ignoring the brain chemistry that makes even a sober addict miserable and prone to relapse.  Participants in this workshop will learn about the brain functions involved in common co-occurring disorders and which medications manage underlying mood disorders without interfering with sobriety.  

PRESENTER:
 Christine Miller, Ed.M., LCMHC teaches the Biological Basis of Behavior and Psychopharmacology in the Graduate School of Counseling at Plymouth State University.  She has 40 years of experience as a psychotherapist.  She is currently in private practice in Bedford, NH working primarily with women and adolescents within an OB/GYN setting.  Prior to that she worked as director of a group home for substance abusing adolescents, in practice with a psychiatrist, in schools, in juvenile corrections and as a behavioral health and substance abuse case manager for an insurance company.  She has taught workshops for professionals through the University of New Hampshire Continuing Education Department for over 15 years.

A 6 HOUR TRAINING EVENT ON MONDAY, JANUARY 19, 2015
8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.)
at NHADACA, 130 Pembroke Road, Suite 100, Concord, NH

PRESENTATION:  Psychotherapy has traditionally addressed the mind, with its cognitive, emotional, and behavioral components; but recent neuroscience research has revealed a new area to add to psychological treatments: The brain and nervous system. We now know that neuroplasticity and neurogenesis occur all through life. This is extremely hopeful for therapy. You will discover where and how brain change occurs in development, through attachment and from experiences throughout one’s life.  Learn ways to elicit these natural processes therapeutically using alternative modalities of meditation, mindfulness, bodywork, movement and sensory awareness. Gain the background you need along with clear principles and effective techniques for addressing nervous system deficits found in substance abusers. By initiating brain change for the better, you add a new dimension to your treatments. And in the process, you will find yourself feeling alert, refreshed and relaxed as you activate your own brain in positive ways.



PRESENTERS:  C. ALEXANDER SIMPKINS, PHD and ANNELLEN M. SIMPKINS, PHD are psychologists specializing in neuroscience, psychotherapy, meditation, and hypnosis. The Simpkins are authors of 28 books, many of them bestsellers. Their most recent books on neuroscience are Neuroscience for Clinicians (Springer, 2012), The Dao of Neuroscience (Norton, 2010), and Neuro-Hypnosis (Norton, 2010). They have also written about meditation for healthy mind-brain change: The Yoga and Mindfulness Therapy Workbook (PESI, 2014), The Tao of Bipolar Disorder (New Harbinger, 2013), Zen Meditation in Psychotherapy (Wiley, 2012), Meditation and Yoga in Psychotherapy (Wiley, 2011), and Meditation for Therapists and Their Clients (Norton 2009). Forthcoming books are Resistance, Rebellion, and Growth (Springer, 2015), and Core Principles of Meditation for Therapy, Multimedia (Wiley, 2015). Their books have over 20 foreign editions and have won numerous awards. Drs. Simpkins have taught their meditative and hypnotic methods to facilitate mind-brain change to people of all ages.  They have been integrating neuroscience into treatments for decades and bring the most recent research findings to practitioners. They present seminars at professional conferences, state mental hospitals, university campuses, and to popular and professional audiences around the world. They studied with psychotherapy masters, including Milton H. Erickson, Jerome D. Frank, Carl Rogers, Lawrence Kubie, and Ernest Rossi, and neuroscience innovators including Vilayanur Ramachandran, Jaime Pineda, Paul Churchland, and Stephen Anagnostaras.

PRESENTATION:
 The chronic nature of addictive disease requires that we reconsider how we provide ongoing support for people trying to establish, maintain, sustain, and in some cases regain recovery status.  Recovery support has traditionally been viewed solely from the perspective of 12-step recovery models, but with the motion toward the incorporation of resiliency and recovery oriented systems of care, recovery concepts have gone through significant re-examination and growth. Various models of recovery support have been created or defined across the country.  This training will examine several of these various models of recovery support.  Distinctions will be made in addressing peer recovery support, non-peer recovery support and recovery coaching.  Participants will be able to identify benefits and practices involved with both individual and group recovery support models.  They will be able describe additional points to consider when providing group recovery support for individuals with co-occurring disorders.  


PRESENTERS:   Mark Ames is the Network Coordinator of Vermont Recovery Center Network.  Through this endeavor he has developed recovery services, trainings, board development approaches, a peer review process and set program standards for providing recovery services.  Previously he has conducted program development for the Vermont Department of Health Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Programs in the areas of prevention intervention, treatment and recovery supports.  Mark has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Perceptual Psychology.  Thirty-one years in recovery, he is also one of the first Certified Addiction Recovery Coaches (CARC) through the Connecticut Certification Board.
Robert Stack, LMHC, LADC is a Vermont licensed alcohol and drug counselor, a VT licensed mental health counselor as well as a certified clinical supervisor.  He currently works as an outpatient therapist at Otter Creek Associates in Brattleboro, VT.  He has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Counseling from UMass Amherst as well as a Master of Science degree in Community Mental Health from Trinity College.
