Description

Description:

 

This online course offers the training in a video format. All course handouts can be viewed online, saved to your computer or printed.

Whether you work in addictions or mental health, it is essential that practitioners understand how to create integrated approaches for addiction treatment and trauma treatment. Co-morbidity research has consistently shown high concordance rates between Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Substance Use Disorders in community and clinical samples. Up to 95% of those seeking/attending Substance Use Disorder treatment have trauma exposure. Childhood physical, psychological, and sexual abuse are often a pathway to Substance Use Disorders.  Research shows that substances are used to reduce the painful emotions associated with trauma. Treating one problem without treating the other can result in a vicious cycle of continued substance abuse, continued high risk behaviors, and difficulty alleviating PTSD symptoms.

In order to integrate workshop content and address the varied training needs of participants, content will focus on an overview of addictions, overview of  trauma and then move into a focus on their relationship and treatment approaches and tools for and integration in treatment. The instructor presents from the philosophy of the national Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) “No Wrong Door” with a conviction that each practitioner needs to understand addictions and trauma, and how to create integrated service planning and treatment.

 Learning Objectives:

 

  • Identify the links between addiction and trauma;
  • Consider how to assess addiction and  trauma;
  • Recognize the effects of trauma on the recovery process;
