Ethically Treating Dual Disorders: Mental Illness/Substance Use

May 1 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Replenishing Practitioner Hope – Effectively and Ethically Treating Persons with Dual Disorders: Mental Illnesses and Substance Use by Dr. Deborah Webb. Register Here.

If we take an honest inventory, most practitioners in the related treatment fields of substance use disorders, mental health, and dual disorders will admit having experienced frustration around ethical dilemmas and a sense of ineffectiveness when trying to assist clients with severe mental illnesses and substance use problems. This workshop will help clinicians reframe what we do and why we do it, shoring up our boundaries and replenishing our own hope for the eventual successful dual recovery of even our most challenged clients. Experience a renewed sense of freedom to ethically assist others without taking on the responsibility of working their recovery programs for them. Come prepared to informally share and problem-solve, as a group, baffling dual disorder scenarios from your practice. Lastly, update your language and conceptualization of substance use disorders utilizing the DSM 5 terminology and ideology (APA, 2013).

Advanced DSM V: Case Conceptualization and Ethics

May 7 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Advanced DSM-5: Case Conceptualization and Ethical Considerations by Dr. Elizabeth Pomeroy. Register Here.

It has been 20 years since the DSM IV-TR was published. The transition from the DSM IV-TR to the DSM-5 can be complex and confusing. This workshop will assist clinical social workers in developing an understanding of the organizational structure and the major diagnostic changes associated with the most recent diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders. Ethical issues related to some of the new diagnoses and assessment will be discussed. Practitioners will be provided with a roadmap for navigating these changes. This workshop will not only provide social workers the knowledge and skills to utilize the DSM-5 in the most efficient and effective manner, but will provide a forum for discourse on challenges related to ethical issues of some of the new diagnoses.
