Beyond Abstinence The Future of Addiction Treatment: New and Innovative Approaches to Treatment
April 13, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$99.00
Instructors: Bob Lynn, EdD, LPC
The focus of this course is to provide a fresh view of treatment based on current research and challenges facing the field today. Many of the entrenched concepts, assumptions and protocols in the field will be examined through a scholarly lens. A significant amount of time will be spent on the role of race and culture as related to treatment. The importance of cultural humility that defines “how health care information is received, how rights and protections are exercised, what is considered to be a health problem, how symptoms and concerns about the problem are expressed, who should provide treatment for the problem, and what type of treatment should be given” will be a strong focus in this course. The challenges in viewing outcomes through a narrow abstinence lens will be presented.
