9 Foreword Conselors who treat people with sbstance se disorders do life-changing work on a daily basis, amid difficlt circmstances that inclde staff shortages, high trnover, low salaries, and scant program fnding. Conselors come to this important work by varios paths and with vastly different skills and experience. The diversity of backgronds and types of preparation can be a strength, provided there is a common fondation from which conselors work. This pblication addresses the following qestions: What professional standards shold gide sbstance abse treatment conselors? What is an appropriate scope of practice for the field? Which competencies are associated with positive otcomes? What knowledge, skills, and attitdes (KSAs) shold all sbstance abse treatment professionals have in common? Workforce development is essential to the field of sbstance se disorder treatment. The Sbstance Abse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has inclded workforce development in its Matrix of Priority Programs. A major focs of this workforce development strategy is improving the competencies of professionals in the field. This pdated edition of Technical Assistance Pblication (TAP) 21: Addiction Conseling Competencies: The, Skills, and Attitdes of Professional Practice (The Competencies) is a key component of that strategy. In 1998, in cooperation with its Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) Network, SAMHSA pblished TAP 21, a comprehensive list of 123 competencies that sbstance abse treatment conselors shold master to do their work effectively. TAP 21 has been sed to develop and evalate addiction conseling crricla, advise stdents, and assess conseling proficiencies. The overarching competencies in this pdated version of TAP 21 remain largely nchanged from the original TAP 21. The KSAs have been changed from those in the 1998 edition when necessary, in light of new thinking in the field. The competencies and the KSAs in practice dimensions that address clinical evalation and treatment planning have been revised to reflect changes in the field. The competencies are defined by sblists of the KSAs needed to master each competency. Bibliographies have been spplemented with new pblications throgh The format has been improved to make the information more accessible and sefl. SAMHSA s TAP series provides a flexible format for the timely transfer of important technical information to the sbstance abse treatment field. This pdated version of TAP 21 exemplifies the flexibility of the TAP format. We are gratefl to the members of the ATTC Network and staff and to all those who participated in the validation and pdating of these competency lists. Pamela S. Hyde, J.D.

11 Introdction In 1998, the Sbstance Abse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the Center for Sbstance Abse Treatment (CSAT) pblished Addiction Conseling Competencies: The, Skills, and Attitdes of Professional Practice (The Competencies) as Technical Assistance Pblication (TAP) 21. Developed by the National Crriclm Committee of the Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) Network, TAP 21 identifies 123 competencies that are essential to the effective practice of conseling for psychoactive sbstance se disorders. TAP 21 also presents the knowledge, skills, and attitdes (KSAs) conselors need to become flly proficient in each competency. TAP 21 has been widely distribted by SAMHSA s National Clearinghose for Alcohol and Drg Information (NCADI) and the ATTC Network. It has become a benchmark by which crricla are developed and edcational programs and professional standards are measred for the field of sbstance abse treatment in the United States. In addition, it has been translated into several langages. Becase the ATTC Network is committed to technology transfer, after the initial pblication of TAP 21, the National Crriclm Committee began exploring ways to enhance the docment for ftre printings. Sccessfl technology transfer reqires more than presenting good information. It entails transmitting scientific knowledge in a way that makes it nderstandable, feasible to implement in a real-world setting, and spportable at a systematic level in other words, getting the right information across in a way that makes it seable. The National Crriclm Committee examined how best to package and present TAP 21 to help people learn key elements and adopt new strategies. The reslt was a revision of TAP 21 a process that was begn in 2000, was completed in 2005, and reslted in the crrent pblication. History of The Competencies In 1993 CSAT created a mltidisciplinary network of 11 ATTC Regional Centers geographically dispersed across the United States and in Perto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Since its inception, the ATTC Network has collaborated with diverse international, national, State, regional, and local partners from mltiple disciplines to recrit qalified addiction treatment practitioners and enhance academic preparation and professional development opportnities in the sbstance abse treatment field. The National Crriclm Committee, composed of ATTC Directors, was established at the Network s inagral meeting. The committee s initial charge was to collect and evalate existing addiction edcational and professional development crricla and establish ftre priorities for ATTC crriclm development. This effort led to researching existing practice and professional literatre and defining an extensive list of addiction practice competencies determined to be essential to effective conseling for sbstance se disorders. These initial competencies wold serve as benchmarks to gide ftre ATTC crriclm design, development, and evalation. 1

12 Addiction Conseling Competencies In addition to its own work, the National Crriclm Committee reviewed and incorporated other pblications on the work of addiction conselors. 1 In 1995 the committee s work reslted in the ATTC pblication Addiction Conselor Competencies. Sbseqent to this pblication, the ATTCs condcted a national srvey to validate the competencies (see appendix C). Reslts spported virtally all of the competencies as being essential to the professional practice of addiction conseling. In 1996, the International Certification and Reciprocity Consortim (ICRC) convened a national leadership grop to evalate the need for model addiction conselor training. After carefl deliberation, the grop conclded that mch of the work to define sch a crriclm standard had already been accomplished by the ATTC National Crriclm Committee and the ICRC in the National Crriclm Committee s Addiction Conselor Competencies and the ICRC s 1996 Role Delineation Stdy, 2 respectively. Soon after, CSAT agreed to fnd a collaborative effort to finalize a docment that cold be sed as a national standard. CSAT convened a panel The National Steering Committee for Addiction Conseling Standards (NSC) that comprised representatives from five national edcational, certification, and professional associations. The NSC was sccessfl in achieving nanimos endorsement of the Addiction Conselor Competencies a milestone in the addiction conseling field. Based on this fondation, the National Crriclm Committee began to delineate the KSAs that ndergird each competency statement. Inpt was solicited from a nmber of key national organizations and selected field reviewers. In 1998 CSAT pblished the reslts of this grondbreaking work as TAP 21 (The Competencies). After TAP 21 was pblished, the National Crriclm Committee systematically condcted focs grops and a national srvey to elicit feedback from the field abot the impact of TAP 21. Althogh feedback was niformly positive and thosands of copies of TAP 21 were disseminated throgh SAMHSA s NCADI and the ATTC Network, refinements were needed to improve the tility of the pblication and enhance its effect in both the addiction practice and edcational systems. Feedback obtained from the srvey and the focs grops indicated a need for additional information to help the field incorporate the competencies into daily practice. Feedback also sggested that there was no need to change the competencies. The most common sggestions were to refine the 1998 pblication by presenting the content in a more ser-friendly fashion and linking it to professional literatre and specific applications. The National Crriclm Committee revised TAP 21 in 2000 based on the feedback of dedicated addiction practice and edcation professionals; however, this revision was never pblished. A new Update Committee was convened in 2005 to pdate the revised 2000 edition with literatre pblished between 2000 and The Update Committee consisted of some of the original members from the National Crriclm Committee; representatives from NAADAC The Association for Addiction Professionals, CSAT, the Center for Mental Health Services, the Center for Sbstance Abse Prevention, the National Association for Children of Alcoholics, and the Annapolis Coalition; treatment providers; and experts in addiction research. The crrent pdated edition retains all of the feedback-based improvements of the 2000 revised version and adds relevant 2 1 Birch and Davis Corporation (1986).

13 Introdction literatre pblished after In addition, the competencies and KSAs of several practice dimensions, in particlar those that address clinical evalation and treatment planning, were rewritten to reflect crrent best practices. What Yo Will Find Inside The Model When creating The Competencies, the National Crriclm Committee recognized a need to emphasize three characteristics of competency: knowledge, skills, and attitdes. Many hors were spent conceptalizing a differentiated model when designing TAP 21 a model that cold address general KSAs necessary for all practitioners dealing with sbstance se disorders while explaining the more specific needs of professional sbstance abse treatment conselors. The first section of the model addresses the generic KSAs. This section contains the transdisciplinary fondations, comprising for discrete bilding blocks: nderstanding addiction, treatment knowledge, application to practice, and professional readiness. The term transdisciplinary was selected to describe the knowledge and skills needed by all disciplines (e.g., medicine, social work, pastoral gidance, corrections, social welfare) that deal directly with individals with sbstance se disorders. The second section of the model specifically addresses the professional practice needs, or practice dimensions, of addiction conselors. Each practice dimension incldes a set of competencies, and, within each competency, the KSAs necessary for effective addiction conseling are otlined. Many additional competencies may be desirable for conselors in specific settings. Edcation and experience affect the depth of the individal conselor s knowledge and skills; not all conselors will be experienced and proficient in all the Figre 1. Components in the Competencies Model competencies discssed. The National Crriclm Committee s goal for the ftre is to help ensre that every addiction conselor possesses, to an appropriate degree, each competency listed, regardless of setting or treatment model. The relationship of the components in the competencies model is conceptalized as a hb with eight spokes (see figre 1). The hb contains the for transdisciplinary fondations that are central to the work of all addiction professionals. The eight spokes are the practice dimensions, each containing the competencies the addiction conselor shold attain to master each practice dimension. 3

14 Addiction Conseling Competencies Recommended Readings Jornal articles, book chapters, and other critical literatre for each transdisciplinary fondation and practice dimension have been reviewed and inclded in this docment. Moreover, separate bibliographies on attitdes and recovery have been added, as have lists of Internet and cltral competency resorces. These can be fond in section 3. Appendices Appendices inclde a glossary (appendix A), a complete list of the competencies (appendix B), a smmary of the reslts of the Committee s National Validation Stdy of The Competencies (appendix C), a complete bibliography with a detailed overview of the methodology sed for literatre searches (appendix D), and a list of people who acted as field reviewers or provided research assistance (appendix E). Companion Volme TAP 21-A As a companion to this volme on conselor competencies, CSAT is pblishing TAP 21-A, Competencies for Sbstance Abse Treatment Clinical Spervisors, which discsses the qalities and abilities integral to spervising sbstance abse treatment clinicians. Uses of The Competencies Since its inception, The Competencies has been improving addiction conseling and addiction conselor edcation across the contry in a nmber of ways. The most common reported applications have been in crriclm/corse evalation and design for higher edcation; personal professional development; stdent advising, spervision, and assessment; assessment of competent practices; design of professional development and contining edcation programs; and certification standards/exams.

15 Section 1: Introdction to the Transdisciplinary Fondations The Transdisciplinary Fondations Addiction professionals work in a broad variety of disciplines bt share an nderstanding of the addictive process that goes beyond the narrow confines of any one specialty. Specific proficiencies, skills, levels of involvement with clients, and scope of practice vary widely among specializations. At their base, however, all addiction-focsed disciplines are bilt on for common fondations. This section focses on for sets of competencies that are transdisciplinary in that they nderlie the work not jst of conselors bt of all addiction professionals. The for areas of knowledge identified here serve as prereqisites to the development of competency in any of the addiction-focsed disciplines. The For Transdisciplinary Fondations I. Understanding Addiction II. Treatment III. Application to Practice IV. Professional Readiness Regardless of professional identity or discipline, each treatment provider mst have a basic nderstanding of addiction that incldes knowledge of crrent models and theories, appreciation of the mltiple contexts within which sbstance se occrs, and awareness of the effects of psychoactive drg se. Each professional mst be knowledgeable abot the continm of care and the social contexts affecting the treatment and recovery process. Each addiction specialist mst be able to identify a variety of helping strategies that can be tailored to meet the needs of individal clients. Each professional mst be prepared to adapt to an ever-changing set of challenges and constraints. Althogh specific skills and applications vary across disciplines, the attitdinal components tend to remain constant. The development of effective practice in addiction conseling depends on the presence of attitdes reflecting openness to alternative approaches, appreciation of diversity, and willingness to change. The following knowledge and attitdes are prereqisite to the development of competency in the professional treatment of sbstance se disorders. Sch knowledge and attitdes form the basis of nderstanding on which discipline-specific proficiencies are bilt. 5
