Basics of Addiction Counseling: Pharmacology of Psychoactive Substance Use Disorders – 7 CEs
Presented by Deborah Fenton-Nichols, EdD, LPC, LAC
The purpose of this workshop is to introduce addiction counselors and other helping professionals to the study of pharmacology and to increase their familiarity with the signs and symptoms of psychoactive substances. Before pharmacology can be explored, it is important to understand the direct connection between psychoactive substance use, brain functioning, and addiction. This workshop is not intended to make clinicians or service providers experts in pharmacology. However the information presented will provide facts that can assist in the assessment, treatment, and referral of clients.
Clinical Supervision: A Relational and Individualized Approach – 7 CEs
Presented by Thomas Durham, PhD
Effective clinical supervision is a mutual endeavor of clinical oversight and professional growth. It is a process that conceptualizes learning for the counselor that involves much more than monitoring a counselor’s work. This workshop is an overview of NAADAC’s new manual, Clinical Supervision: An Overview of Functions, Processes and Methodology, and will demonstrate the processes of supervision that make it an essential component in effective clinical care. Areas of focus include relational dynamics, individualized approaches, and strength-based competencies – all hallmarks of skill development through evidence-based supervision that ultimately leads to effective client care.
