Treatment of Co-occurring Substance Use and Mental Health Disorders

July 24 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Building Resiliency and Regulation: Neurobiological, Relational and Emotion-Focused Perspectives of the Treatment of Co-occurring Substance Use and Mental Health Disorders by Scott Steiner, PhD. Register here.

One of the most challenging areas of clinical practice involves treating individuals with co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders.  Most traditional treatments do not adequately address the underlying limitations these individuals face relationally and in terms of their ability to regulate their autonomic nervous system, and work with (rather than simply against) their emotional experience.  In this workshop you will learn about unifying and integrative neurobiological, relational and emotion-focused perspectives that can aid and inform treatment with such individuals.  The seminar will include empirical and clinical rationales for integrating these perspectives.

Dr. Parra-Cardona will give an overview of his federally funded program of research focused on preventive parenting and cultural adaptation with Latino/a communities. By describing a mixed-methods prevention study, he will illustrate the importance of generating qualitative data to guide programs of research according to salient life experiences of target populations. He will also reflect about the  need to implement rigorous research designs to effectively address critical gaps in knowledge with high relevance for underserved Latino/a populations. Finally, he will present preliminary findings from a pilot intervention study in Monterrey, México, demonstrating the potential impact that cultural adaptation research can have in an international context.

Dr. Parra-Cardona is an associate professor in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies, Doctoral Specialization in Family Therapy, at Michigan State University. He is also associate director of the MSU Research Consortium on Gender-Based Violence. He just completed an NIMH-funded prevention study focused on low income Latino/a immigrant families and holds a career development K-award from NIDA to expand his program of research to Latino/a families with adolescents. He collaborates with Mexican professionals in the implementation of community-based programs of research and training of mental health therapists with leading NGOs and research institutes in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua city, Monterrey, and Mexico, D.F.
