Presents:

  TREATING ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION 

with Frederic J. White LICSW, LADC, C-CATODSW

A 6 HOUR TRAINING EVENT ON FRIDAY, JUNE 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:  The co-occurring issues of a mental health issue and substance abuse are generally considered to be the rule rather than the exception. At mental health centers, the percentage of those who are being treated with mental health issues who also meet criteria for a Substance Use Disorder is generally considered to be well over half. In substance abuse treatment programs, the number of clients who seem to exhibit mental health symptoms (e.g. depression, anxiety) is also high. Effective treatment for either improves the ability to successfully treat the other. This training will focus on the issue of treating anxiety and depression. Typical medication approaches will be discussed. Effective use of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) will be explained and modeled so that clinicians gain knowledge and skills to help clients reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, as effective treatment of these conditions helps reduce relapse potential. Participants will:
Learn methods of using REBT effectively
Understand the benefits of using REBT to reduce anxiety and depression to support recovery efforts of clients with a Substance Use Disorder
Gain skills in assessing and treating anxiety and depression.


PRESENTER:  Fred worked as the Director of Substance Abuse Services at Greater Nashua Mental Health Center for 7 years and is currently the Director of Substance Use Disorders at Riverbend Community Mental Health Center. He has been Clinical Director at three substance agencies and was the Administrator at Seminole Point Hospital. He also served  as the Disaster Behavioral Health Liaison for Southern New Hampshire. Fred has worked in the treatment of addictions for almost 25 years. He is trained in Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) which is helpful in treating addictions and Mood disorders. Fred provides training nationally to behavioral health professionals who provide support after disasters.

ETHICAL ISSUES FOR RECOVERY SUPPORT WORKERS

A 6 HOUR TRAINING EVENT ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 24, 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:  Recovery Support Workers have a unique relationship with clients receiving treatment for substance use disorders, often interacting with them in more informal settings and over longer periods of time than counselors.  The resulting familiarity could result to a blurring of boundaries traditionally established between clients and treatment providers.  This workshop will examine common ethical issues and conflicts faced by counselors and Recovery Support Workers in the usual course of practice. It will focus specifically on boundary issues, dual relationships and confidentiality issues and provide frameworks for sorting out priorities and competing loyalties in order to make the best decisions possible. Ethical conflicts and dilemmas will be addressed through discussion and case analysis. Strategies for managing these conflicts will be explored.  Participants are encouraged to bring examples of ethical conflicts they have encountered in their own practice for discussion.  Participants will be able to:
describe why and how to apply the federal confidentiality regulations for alcohol and drug abuse patient records.
identify the exceptions to confidentiality.
navigate ethical conflicts resulting from the requirements of confidentiality.
identify 3 common boundary violations and how to avoid them.

PRESENTER:  Jacqui Abikoff, LICSW, MLADC, is the Executive Director of Horizons Counseling Center in Gilford, NH.  She has been working with substance abusers and their families for over 25 years.  Abikoff  has an extensive background providing clinical services, as well as training and consultation in the areas of confidentiality and professional ethics, domestic violence, co-occurring disorders, PTSD, women’s issues, corrections and forensics. Her professional training and consultation services have been delivered to substance abuse and mental health professionals and provider agencies across the country.

THE NH TRAINING INSTITUTE ON ADDICTIVE DISORDERS

Presents:

SEXUAL HEALTH PROGRAMMING IN SUBSTANCE ABUSE 
TREATMENT AND RECOVERY

with Raven James, PhD.

A 6 HOUR TRAINING EVENT ON FRIDAY, JULY 17, 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:  The demographics of substance use has changed dramatically over the past 20 years, and many health issues directly linked to substance abuse disparities include a sexual component, (e.g. STIs, HIV, sexual behaviors, reproductive health, sexual dysfunction, sexual orientation, domestic violence, rape, incest, sexual assault), yet few comprehensive approaches currently exist to address sexual health in substance abuse treatment. The Institutes of Medicine recommends that NIH implement research agendas designed to advance scientific knowledge and understanding of health, including inequities in health care; one recommended area includes intervention research to develop and test the effectiveness of interventions that address health inequities and negative health outcomes experienced by women, minorities and sexual minorities. Addressing sexuality in treatment programs can provide a baseline for new understanding, and assist counselors in setting up vital treatment plans and relapse prevention that include awareness and understanding of sexuality issues which may need further therapy, support and intervention. This workshop is designed to provide this understanding so that counselors may make connections between sexuality and addiction in substance abuse treatment and begin to approach sexual health in substance abuse treatment settings.

PRESENTER:  Dr. Raven James is a sexologist and an Associate Professor at Governors State University in Illinois and teaches in a Master of Health Sciences in Addictions Studies and Behavioral Health. She has worked in the substance abuse field since 1994, providing counselor training to addiction professionals at the state and national level. Dr. James received her PhD in Human Sexuality, and completed two postdoctoral fellowships. Her research has centered on women, HIV prevention, working with LGBT issues, and improving sexual self-esteem and sexual health as an integral component of the recovery process. Dr. James has several publications to date, including several book chapters and research articles. She is an active member of the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality (SSSS), and serves on the board for the International Coalition of Addiction Studies Education (INCASE) and the National Association of LGBT Addictions Professionals (NALGAP). Dr. James will begin pilot testing a sexual health intervention for women in substance abuse treatment in 2015 at a treatment center in Chicago and is currently writing and editing a 3 volume encyclopedia set on “Sex and Sexuality” for publication with ABC-CLIO in 2016.

  THE ADDICTIVE FAMILY: ADDRESSING THE LEGACY OF TRAUMA WITH BOTH SCHOOL-AGE CHILDREN & ADULTS

with Claudia Black, PhD

8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.)
Radisson Hotel, 700 Elm St. Manchester, NH

PRESENTATION:  When people think of trauma they often think of acute dramatic situations such as a natural disaster or car accident. Yet the majority of people who experience trauma experience a more subtle and chronic form that exists within their own family.  Claudia will give a portrait of addiction in the family, offering an overlay of how adverse child experiences, emotional abandonment and blatant violence are the foundation of traumatic responses. She will identify and explain shame screens such as victimization, depression, rage, procrastination and control. Offering an understanding of how trauma in one’s history is clearly connected to multi-addictive and co-occurring disorders, she will summarize the presentation discussing realistic goals. With a better understanding of trauma within the family system and internalized shame based messages, the afternoon is more of a strategy based workshop.  Claudia will discuss areas of functionality which influence emotional and behavioral health and then identify protective factors supporting children in their resiliency. She will speak to goals and explore the use of different mediums in working with school aged children. She will then go on to discuss working with family members in early recovery around their enabling, assisting them to recognize their self-defeating behaviors and garner a picture of what their recovery could entail.

PRESENTER:  Claudia Black, PhD. is the clinical architect of and actively involved in the Claudia Black Young Adult Center at The Meadows. She serves as a Senior Fellow and has been a clinical consultant at The Meadows Treatment Center in Arizona since 1998.  Claudia’s seminal work with children impacted by substance abuse in the late 1970s created the foundation for the adult child movement.
