PRESENTATION:  This workshop will explore several current challenges to our understanding of prevention and intervention with individuals experiencing substance use disorders. The first involves understanding important tasks and processes involved in initiation and recovery.  The second focuses on developing an understanding of use disorders that goes beyond DSM-5 symptoms and focuses on a multidimensional comprehensive view of substance use behavior and how it becomes enmeshed in the life of the individual and difficult to change. The third is to examine the client contribution to recovery and the difference between change generating (behavior specific) mechanisms delineated by the Transtheoretical Model and change regulating (Self-Control) mechanisms and how to address these differences in treatment.  The fourth is to explore how prevention and treatment are connected to the personal process of change of individuals initiating or trying to recover from addictions.  As a result of attending this training participants will be able to:  describe the key tasks of each of the stages of change and how they function in becoming addicted and recovery; describe the three critical components of use disorders: neuroadaptation, impaired self-regulation, and salience or narrowing of the behavioral repertoire; describe the difference between different types of mechanisms of change/recovery: change generating processes of change and self-regulation mechanisms; consider how “scaffolding” can be used to support self-control and self-regulation; and understand the differences between early and later stages and processes of change.
