Specific attention will be paid to: 1) Substance-Related Disorders; 2) Major Mental Disorders (Schizophrenia/Psychotic Disorders, Mood Disorders, Anxiety Disorders); 3) Personality Disorders. The biopsychosocial impact of these disorders is also discussed. An additional emphasis is placed on encouraging practitioners to support the personal recovery of the individuals they serve.

Holiday Inn, Grantville Septermber 12, 2014 TR390: Trauma-Informed Practices (5 Hours) NEW Core Course 9:00am 3:30pm The need to address the impact of trauma in the lives of people with CODs has been firmly established. Adverse childhood events are stressors that may trigger the development of psychiatric and/or substance-related disorders. This seminar presents trauma-informed practices that are necessary for helping individuals overcome the symptoms of trauma and the consequences of addiction. We will also suggest some practical tools for managing common trauma symptoms that emerge during treatment. Differentiate stress, trauma, PTSD and complex PTSD; Discuss the implications of the Adverse Childhood Events (ACE) study as they pertain to Co-Occurring Disorders; List the principles that underlie all trauma-informed services; Identify core elements of trauma-informed care for people with CODs; Cite examples of interventions that are useful in working with people who have histories of trauma. Holiday Inn, Grantville October 10,

20 COD COURSE DESCRIPTIONS TR393: Co-occurring Disorders: Beginnings First Impressions (5 hours) This seminar provides a detailed examination of the first interactions between the program, staff and persons with co-occurring disorders and their family members. Since first impressions are sometimes hard to overcome, the way that programs welcome prospective users of services needs significant exploration. The adage treatment begins with the first encounter suggests that our procedures of welcoming, screening, and assessing persons with potential co-occurring disorders need to incorporate recovery-focused principles and practices. List characteristics of a welcoming environment; Explore ways to partner with persons and family members, using recovery-oriented, strengths-based principles and practices; Examine cultural elements to consider in selecting approaches to screening, assessment, treatment, and working with families of persons with CODs; Explain the use of stage-of-change theory and Motivational Interviewing related to engagement; Evaluate personal and programmatic strengths and needs in welcoming, engaging, screening and assessing persons with CODs. Holiday Inn, Grantville November 14, 2014 TR385: Co-occurring Disorders: Recovery, Rehabilitation, Self-Help and Supports (5 hours) This seminar examines possible options for people who have one or more co-occurring psychiatric and substance use disorders. We review personal recovery and recovery-oriented practice principles; different psychiatric rehabilitation approaches; existing peer supports; and a number of other supports personal, natural community, and program-related. Finally, we consider how to look first for resources beyond our own programs and systems in order to promote both our strengths-based practice and the person s options in selecting useful recovery supports. Describe recovery-based principles and practices, including collaborative ways to support the person s journey; Discuss values, goals, and principles of psychiatric rehabilitation as they apply to persons with co-occurring disorders (CODs); Identify various sources of self-help; Specify means of identifying, locating and engaging needed supports; Integrate the above principles into all facets of one s own practice.
