Some are similar to the more established substances; others are unique. This workshop will provide attendees with an overview of some of the newer substances of abuse, street terminology, what they look like, how they are used, what kinds of effects to look for and possible medical consequences of their use. Visiting the Power Within: Guided Imagery and Psychotherapy Sabrina N Diaye, LCSW-C, Founder/Psychotherapist, The Heart Nest Wellness Center, Community Relations Manager, Marworth Treatment Center Guided imagery is the perfect tool for re-acquainting us with our imagination and our innate wisdom. This ancient practice of mind and spirit has been demonstrated by modern science to enhance physical and emotional healing. Research has demonstrated its ability to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system and affect neural pathways in the brain. This workshop will explore the use of this powerful tool in the therapeutic process. It will examine the use of guided imagery as complementary method for managing stress, extreme emotions, and resistance. Its use as a complement to 12-Step programs will also be explored. You will leave this workshop with a new tool for both your clinical work and your own growth journey.

A focus on the diversity of problem gamblers for holistic mental health care services will be included. Self-Care for Counselors: Replenish What You ve Put Out Wanda Binns, LCSW-C, EAP Manager, University of Maryland Medical School, Baltimore In our roles as clinicians and counselors, we are often exposed to human suffering as we support clients through their struggles. We often use energy as we respond to the emotional, physical, and behavioral well-being of our clients. We have a responsibility to maintain balance in our personal and professional lives. Self-care allows us to model work/life balance for our clients. This workshop will focus on the importance of maintaining balance in these areas by identifying self-care strategies to avoid burn out or compassion fatigue.

How can addiction professionals and addiction treatment programs make SBIRT work for you and your practice?
