A 6-hour training with Dr. Scott Methe
February 16, 2024
PRESENTATION: Cannabis use is rapidly growing in the United States. Among those who use cannabis, a subset will develop cannabis use disorder (CUD). As a result, clinicians are more likely to encounter clients with established patterns of problematic cannabis use. Effective treatment, therefore, is based on an understanding of biological, psychological, and social factors related to cannabis use. Clinicians who are poised to treat CUD will also have a thorough knowledge of assessment and diagnostic concerns. Through case studies, discussions, and exercises, participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of the unique course of CUD, and use this knowledge to develop effective treatment plans and interventions.
Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:
- List biological, psychological, and social factors associated with CUD;
- Summarize diagnostic considerations and co-occurring problems associated with CUD;
- Identify at least 2 effective assessment and treatment approaches for treating CUD;
- Describe the state of research supporting CUD treatment; and
- Develop effective treatment plans and interventions for individuals with CUD.
