8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.)

at NHADACA, 130 Pembroke Rd. Concord, NH

DESCRIPTION OF THE PRESENTATION:  Clinical supervisors are in a position of significant power and responsibility.  Responsibilities inherent in this role are to the supervisees, the agency/organization for which they work, the clients, the profession and ultimately to oneself.  Balancing these responsibilities requires a clear understanding of the role of clinical supervision in practice management including inherent liability issues and the various ethical responsibilities of the position.  Navigating these obligations often raises ethical issues for both the supervisor and the supervisees.  This training will examine the roles, obligations and responsibilities of clinical supervisors as well as the ethical and legal parameters that define that role.  The differences between, and liability attached to, clinical supervision, administrative supervision and peer collaboration will also be highlighted.  Participants will be able to state the differences between supervision and collaboration; be able to utilize appropriate methods for documenting clinical supervision; understand the potential for conflicts that may arise in dual relationships between supervisor/supervisee; and be able to explain areas of professional liability stemming from the supervisor role.

  "Motivational Interviewing Assessment:
Supervisory Tools for Enhancing Proficiency"


with Stephen R. Andrew, LCSW, LADC, CCS,

A 12 hour training event Thursday May 15 and Friday, May 16, 2014

8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. both days (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.)

At NHADACA, 130 Pembroke Rd. Concord, NH

DESCRIPTION OF THE PRESENTATION:  MIA:STEP is a toolkit for those who supervise or mentor treatment providers in a clinical setting. MIA:STEP tools and resources are meant to be used by clinical supervisors or mentors to enhance supervisees’ existing MI skills and to help them use the MI Assessment protocol effectively and appropriately.Feedback and coaching are most effective when based on firsthand observation of a counselor engaged in working with a client or group of clients.  However, clinical supervisors often lack access to samples of clinical practice they can use to demonstrate or explore exemplary practices such as MI in the course of providing feedback. The mentoring products included in the empirically supported MIA:STEP toolkit support observation-based supervision, enhance treatment providers' Motivational Interviewing (MI) skills and improve provider skills beyond the realm of MI. Using MI effectively will strengthen practitioners' ability to provide structured, focused, and effective treatment for patients and clients.   Part of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s Blending Initiative, this course is designed to reduce the gap that exists between the publication of research results and impact on treatment delivery.

"Treatment Planning: Translating Required
Paperwork into Clinically Useful Information"

 

with  Margaret O’Hagan-Lynch, MS, LPC

A 6 hour training event on Monday, June 23, 2014

8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.)

at NHADACA, 130 Pembroke Rd. Concord, NH

DESCRIPTION OF THE PRESENTATION: Treatment planning is most effective when the treatment objectives are defined in measurable, attainable, time limited, realistic and specific terms. This training, based on the NIDA/SAMHSA Blending Product: Treatment Planning MATRS, will present tools and training resources that can help substance abuse treatment providers transform required "paperwork” into clinically valuable information. Participants will learn how to use the data collected via an assessment instrument (e.g., ASI) to assess patients' substance abuse, to develop effective treatment plans, and to monitor outcomes. Research shows that after providers administer assessment instruments, they often file the findings instead of using them to customize effective treatments for their clients. This training is designed to change that practice and help clinicians, supervisors, and managers make good use of the data that is collected. Using this information appropriately can help treatment providers address the specific needs of individual clients and improve treatment outcomes.

"Relapse Prevention"

with Walter Simpson, LCSW, NCACAC, CRT

A 6 hour training event on June 26, 2014
8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.)

at NHADACA, 130 Pembroke Rd. Concord, NH

PRESENTATION:  Before trying to assist others in relapse prevention, one must first have a solid understanding of addictions.  This training begins with examining the psychological, personality, socio-cultural, supra-cultural, and culture specific factors as well as the biological and genetic predispositions viewed through the multi-causal model of addiction.   This training will then focus on how the body absorbs and metabolizes the various categories of substances and the potential psychological and physiological consequences of their use and abuse.   After a quick review of the positives and negatives of the various treatment modalities we will address the behaviors and challenges recovery support workers and others may encounter as they assist those attempting to maintain recovery.  Specific attention will be given to the post-acute withdrawal symptoms that clients are likely to experience and what actions recovery support workers can do to help clients through the continuum of care.   Finally, we will look at the basic physiological and psychological needs of the recovering individuals and discuss how to help them develop comprehensive relapse prevention plans and review what support options are available.

PRESENTATION:  The influence of family dynamics, ethnocultural factors, and gender / sexual orientation differences on the recovery process.  Research and discussion of substance abuse among different ethnic groups has historically been and continues to be a highly charged social and political issue.  This training will look at the ethnic and cultural backgrounds of the participants as well as the people with whom they may be working.  It will explore the potential consequences of stereotyping individuals and communities and is designed to help participants develop an ethnocultural competency that includes cognitive, affective, and skills dimensions.  Participants will identify factors that are often attributed to race, ethnicity and culture and discuss the implications and impact of the various perceptions and realities.  This training will also include discussion of gender and sexual orientation differences and the role of family dynamics and societal expectations and norms on an individual’s ability to achieve and maintain recovery.  The final components of this training will address the topics of communication skills and the vital role of spirituality in achieving a fulfilling life in recovery.  Participants will develop an awareness of a plethora of ethnocultural factors that might influence a person’s ability to maintain recovery; recognize the impact that family and society expectations can have on a person’s recovery; be able to articulate the difference between active listening and pseudo listening; and understand the importance of spirituality in the recovery process.

PRESENTATIONFamily members of addicts often spend years hoping that their loved one will stop using substances.  And when the addict ultimately does enter recovery, the family may initially feel relief, but they are often not prepared for the changes that need to occur in the entire family unit in order to maintain a healthy family structure.  Prior to recovery, families form many avenues for dealing with addiction and often they have difficulty changing those roles when the addict isn’t using.  This education will explore how those roles are developed when coping with addiction, how the family begins to change in early recovery, and what challenges families may face in regards to long term recovery.  The workshop will also explore many of the avenues that families can take to work on long term recovery for all of the family members.  By the end of this training participants will have gained an increased understanding of co-dependency and family roles that are developed during active addiction and why family members form these roles.  They will explore how the family changes in early recovery and how this affects each of the other family members; learn how to help families prepare for the roadblocks that can occur in early recovery and assist them in normalizing those roadblocks; and explore options for recovery treatment that will help sustain long term recovery.
