PRESENTATION: This workshop is geared toward people new to the field and will focus on the 12 Core Functions (screening, intake, orientation, assessment, treatment planning, counseling, case management, crisis intervention, client education, referral, reports and record keeping and consultation) and the related global criteria of substance use counseling. Participants will be shown the value of each function, how they are interrelated, and form an understanding of how they apply to clinical practice. This will provide a framework for verbalizing and analyzing the skills necessary for good clinical practice related to work with substance use clients. This course is geared towards non-clinicians working toward licensure. Participants will define the role of the twelve core functions within counseling practice; understand the interrelated aspects of the core functions and global criteria and develop a better understanding of the core functions in the chemical dependency counseling process.

NOTE:  Although this course meets categories of competence for substance use and other mental health counselors, this training is intended for individuals new to the field of substance use disorders.  This course is core in nature and offers basic information.
