PRESENTATION:  It is generally held that the treatment of marijuana abuse is more challenging than the treatment of other drugs. This workshop focuses on the issues of the treatment of marijuana use, misuse and abuse through the use of cognitive behavioral approaches. General strategic approaches that work will be reviewed along with the rationale for their use. Specific interventions that have been demonstrated to be effective will be covered as well as a review of the available research into treatment approach efficacy. Participants will leave the workshop with treatment approaches they can implement in their setting.   As a result of attending this training participants will be able to:

  • Identify at least 2 deleterious brain effects of marijuana use;
  • Identify at least 2 mental health effects of marijuana use;
  • Identify at least 2 general health effects of marijuana use; and
  • Identify the 2 most common therapist strategic treatment errors and 3 therapeutic approaches.
