5 Introduction Research is constantly contributing new knowledge to the fields of substance abuse prevention and treatment. Yet this new knowledge isn t finding its way into service settings as quickly as it could. One reason substance abuse practitioners do not apply scientific findings is because they are often unsure what evidence-based practices are or which ones to use. In addition, a number of other barriers to implementing new findings exist. Research is often written in difficult-to-understand, technical terms. Trainings, subscriptions to scientific journals and other avenues practitioners have for learning about current research-based practices are often costly. In addition, many community treatment agencies have very limited funding. Before practitioners can effectively use research-based innovations, they must understand their value and the impact effective scientific methods can have on improving outcomes for clients. This Best Practices in Addiction Treatment workshop is not designed to give practitioners the skills they need to implement specific evidence-based practices, but rather to help them conceptualize how research-based methods can improve their work. WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES This workshop has been designed with four objectives in mind: 1. Identify a number of current evidence-based practices, 2. Describe a model of addiction treatment that illustrates how evidence-based practices can be used to improve the clinical process, 3. Review instructional manuals for implementing evidencebased practices, and 4. Examine some of the issues related to adopting innovative practices in community treatment settings. Best Practices in Addiction Treatment: A Workshop Facilitator s Guide 5

6 Introduction (Continued) Connecting Service Providers With Scientific Methods The bibliography of evidence-based practices in substance abuse treatment is growing and will continue to grow in coming years. Future funding for community treatment agencies will most likely be tied to producing and documenting treatment outcomes by using research-based recommended practices. In 1999, the Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) Network developed a publication called The Change Book: A Blueprint for Technology Transfer (The Change Book). This document has earned widespread acclaim for its innovative step-by-step approach to implementing change strategies at multiple levels within a system. The Change Book points out that technology transfer the application of scientific knowledge to practical purposes in a particular field is much broader in scope than just hosting an informational workshop or conducting a training exercise. Facilitating the adoption of new knowledge into every day practice requires an ongoing effort at a variety of levels. Educational workshops are just ONE of a number of activities used to pass scientific knowledge on to service providers. This workshop was designed by the ATTC Network as one activity, among many, to help connect service providers with current scientific methods. It provides practitioners with information about the importance of using evidence-based practices in their work, and highlights some of the issues related to implementing change initiatives. OUR THANKS! The vision for this workshop format and facilitator s guide was originally developed by the Northwest Frontier ATTC. The ATTC National Office modified the workshop design to make it more accessible for a national audience. The ATTC Network gratefully acknowledges Steve Gallon, Ph.D., Pam Kelly, M.S.W., Dennis McCarty, Ph.D., and Eldon Edmundson, Ph.D., for their contributions.

7 How to Use This Guide The Role of the Facilitator The role of the facilitator in this workshop format is to increase the knowledge base of participants, build their interest in trying new practice models, and help them become aware of the organizational issues involved with adopting evidence-based treatment interventions. The facilitator is a key part of making this workshop format work.? This guide was designed to be a step-by-step map for creating and facilitating a Best Practices in Addiction Treatment workshop. Tips, hints, suggestions and scripts will guide you through the entire process. Module I This guide is divided into ten Modules. Module I is designed to guide you through the tasks that need to be completed prior to the actual workshop date. Modules II-X Modules II-X examine the activities that will take place on the day of the workshop. At the beginning of each of these Modules, an agenda is included with the corresponding section highlighted to show you exactly where in the day that particular Module falls. Modules II-X also include a facilitator s script. This script is intended to provide the facilitator with a context and basis for developing his/her own presentation. It is not intended to be read aloud, word-for-word. Remember Use the facilitator s script in Modules II-X as a basis to develop your own presentation. These scripts are not intended to be read aloud, word-for-word. Best Practices in Addiction Treatment: A Workshop Facilitator s Guide 7

8 How to Use This Guide (Continued) Adaptations such as including professional experiences and personal observations, adding or deleting material to meet the specific needs of the audience, and using the facilitator s preferred vocabulary and style of expression are expected. A second column in Modules II-X describes the approximate time frame, corresponding PowerPoint slides and any required materials that are needed for that portion of the workshop. Additional Resources on the Enclosed CD-Rom Throughout this guide, we refer to handouts and PowerPoint presentations that accompany each Module. Templates for many of these items can be found on the enclosed CD-Rom at the front of this notebook. In addition, samples of the slides and handouts are included throughout. Like the facilitator s scripts, each of these items will need to be modified to fit the needs of your specific workshop. Tell Us Your Thoughts In the study of systems change, we have learned that initiatives which facilitate bidirectional feedback and continuous quality improvement tend to be more successful. The ATTC National Office is interested in any lessons you learn as you conduct Best Practices in Addiction Treatment workshops in your region.

9 Workshop Overview The Best Practices in Addiction Treatment workshop is a one-day training focused on building awareness of evidence-based addiction treatment practices. Implementing changes based on research findings can be difficult for treatment professionals. That s why this workshop shares specific principles, steps, strategies and activities for achieving the adoption of evidence-based practices in real world settings. Participants will learn about treatment models and evidencebased practices supported by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration s (SAMHSA) Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT), the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) and other research centers. Manuals outlining specific evidence-based practices will be distributed, reviewed and discussed. This workshop is NOT designed to build the specific practitioner skills necessary to implement the treatment protocols in these manuals. Rather, the purpose of this workshop is to build awareness about these types of tools and the value of using research-based interventions in treatment settings. Target Audience This workshop is appropriate for professionals from the following fields: Substance abuse treatment Mental health Social services Faith-based Corrections Criminal justice Vocational rehabilitation Health Desired Participant Mix 30-50% line staff Some supervisors Some directors Recommended Number of Participants: Minimum of 20 Maximum of 150 Best Practices in Addiction Treatment: A Workshop Facilitator s Guide 9

10 Workshop Overview (Continued) Participants Will Be Able to: 1. Identify a number of current evidence-based practices, 2. Describe a model of addiction treatment that illustrates how evidence-based practices can be used to improve the clinical process, 3. Review instructional manuals for implementing evidence-based practices, and 4. Examine some of the issues related to adopting innovative practices in community treatment settings. Workshop Design This workshop is designed to be presented in one seven-hour session, which includes lunch and two 15-minute breaks. The workshop includes both large and small group activities which cover the following: A definition of evidence-based practices The use of evidence-based practice manuals in substance abuse treatment The dynamics of implementing science-based innovations in practice settings A sampling of evidence-based practice manuals; four manuals are recommended for review during one workshop An evidence-based treatment model for improving practice A case study about implementing an evidence-based practice in a real treatment setting What Have Previous Participants Thought? This workshop format has been pilot tested a number of times. Evaluation data indicates that participants typically enjoy learning about evidence-based practices. They benefit from examining specific practice manuals, discussing those manuals with colleagues at the workshop, and learning about implementation issues that must be addressed.?

12 Workshop Room Set-up The room set-up for this workshop format needs to include a meeting room large enough to accommodate the entire group of participants at tables seating six to eight people. Depending on the room size, layout and total number of participants, break-out rooms may also be required. Each break-out group should include three to eight participants. If the meeting room is large enough, break-out groups can convene around the perimeter of the room. If there are more than 80 participants, additional break-out rooms may be required especially if the room size does not allow for sufficient space between tables to minimize the noise generated by each small group. A screen, laptop computer and LCD projector need to be available in the large meeting room. The tables should be placed so that each participant has an unobstructed view of the screen. Recap of Required Materials Meeting room large enough to accommodate all workshop participants Tables seating six to eight participants Break-out rooms for small group activities (if necessary) Screen for PowerPoint presentations Laptop computer LCD projector Hint Set-up a display table with a variety of evidence-based treatment manuals that are NOT being reviewed during the workshop. This will give participants a sense of the volume of material available beyond the manuals to be discussed in the context of this one-day workshop.

13 Module I: Prior to the Workshop Best Practices in Addiction Treatment: A Workshop Facilitator s Guide

14 Module I: Prior to the Workshop This Module is about planning your workshop. It will explain who needs to be involved and what needs to be done two to three months prior to the actual date of the workshop. This section is meant to be a planning tool to be used along with the introductory pieces of this guide, to help you think about the various aspects of hosting a Best Practices in Addiction Treatment workshop. The content for this Module was formulated after several of these workshops were conducted in a variety of locations. It is important to note that something new was learned at each one. You will likely want to make your own notes about planning for future reference. Best Practices in Addiction Treatment: A Workshop Facilitator s Guide 14

15 Module I: Task List Prior to Workshop Time Frame: Begin Tasks Three Months Prior TASKS 1. Identify a local planning team for the workshop. Members should have strong knowledge about priority needs in the region relating to evidence-based practices. They should also have access to the designated target audience to market the workshop effectively. 2. Review the sample agenda and determine your region s needs to be addressed during the workshop. 3. Based on the needs identified in task two, select the evidencebased practice manuals to have participants review. Then, obtain a copy of each manual for each workshop participant. No more than four different manuals should be reviewed during one workshop. THINGS TO THINK ABOUT The planning team will likely include staff from your Regional Center, the state alcohol and drug authority, provider associations and other stakeholders. As a planning team, identify the regional needs that could best be addressed during this workshop (i.e., teen marijuana use, methamphetamine use, etc.) The Northwest Frontier ATTC developed a bibliography of 15 manuals appropriate for this workshop format. This bibliography is included in the appendix of this guide. - continued Best Practices in Addiction Treatment: A Workshop Facilitator s Guide 15

16 Module I: Task List Prior to Workshop TASKS 4. Determine who the workshop facilitator and case study presenter will be. (See Module VIII for more information about the case study presentation.) 5. Select a site that can meet the room set-up requirements and handle the number of anticipated workshop participants. 6. Utilizing the workshop expenses template on page 20, determine the workshop fees and ancillary benefits that you will offer. 7. Develop a mailing list and market the workshop to substance abuse, mental health, faith-based, social service, corrections, criminal justice, vocational rehabilitation and health professionals in the region. THINGS TO THINK ABOUT Consider who is most knowledgable about the regional needs that were identified, who can facilitate the day effectively and who can present a relevant case study. Consider your budget, convenience and the anticipated number of participants when choosing your site. Base the workshop fees on your site expenses, costs (if any) of the manuals to be reviewed, food, photocopying expenses, presenter travel expenses, honoraria, etc. Your planning team can help develop the mailing list for potential participants. The ideal number of participants is Use a variety of media to market your workshop such as print advertising, brochures, Web sites, etc. - continued Best Practices in Addiction Treatment: A Workshop Facilitator s Guide 16

17 Module I: Task List Prior to Workshop TASKS 8. The facilitator and planning team should decide who to invite in addition to participants. 9.

23 Module II: Getting the Workshop Started This Module corresponds to the welcome portion of the agenda. It is a great opportunity to roll-out the red carpet, and make people feel comfortable. Be sure to provide information about the facility and any continuing education credits that will be provided for the day, as well as an outline of the workshop objectives. The welcome portion of the workshop allows people to transition from the small group conversations that typically take place before a conference begins to the issue-specific content that will be covered by the presenter(s). A 15-minute time frame should be sufficient for this portion of the workshop. However, if there are questions or details that require additional time, it will be time well-spent. Taking care of these issues will allow everyone to focus and listen effectively when the workshop formally begins. Time frame: 15 minutes Accompanying Handouts For this Module refer participants to the Workshop Agenda and Workshop Objectives handouts. Samples of these can be found at the end of this Module, and templates can be found on the enclosed CD-Rom at the front of this notebook.
