NACCTP: Motivational Interviewing

$249

with Ryan Kennedy, PsyD, LAC, LMFT, LPC, RN

Calendar Aug 3, 2020 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: “Motivational interviewing (MI) is a client‐centered collaborative style of conversation designed to strengthen a person’s motivation for and commitment to change. MI is counselor‐guided in that the counselor is skilled at managing ambivalence, eliciting change‐talk, and honoring the client’s autonomy about taking the next step toward a commonly agreed-upon goal” (Miller & Rollnick, 2010). Over 385 studies to date have demonstrated the effectiveness of the model at increasing client engagement, retention, compliance, and improving treatment outcomes. The Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) has identified MI as a best practice within the addiction treatment field. The CAC Clinical Training Program at the Colorado Office of Behavioral Health (OBH) is committed to a process of integrating the Motivational Interviewing style, spirit, and strategies into all levels of training and to supporting clinical supervision of motivational interviewing as a counseling style. NOTE: This training can be taken independently, as a required class for CAC/LAC credentialing, and also as part of the Noeticus Evidence-Based Approaches in Clinical Practice Certificate™ (NEBACPC).

NACCTP: Advanced Motivational Interviewing

with Ryan Kennedy, PsyD, LAC, LMFT, LPC, RN

Calendar Sep 3, 2020 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: This class of skill development in Advanced Motivational Interviewing (MI) will initially offer a brief review of the fundamental spirit, processes, and skills of MI, and then focus intensively on clinical skills development. The training is designed to assist the counselor in developing and practicing skills to assist clients in identifying and strengthening intrinsic motivation for positive change. This is an advanced course in Motivational Interviewing, so it is expected that the participant will already be able to demonstrate the foundational MI skills of conducting a client interview using the OARS + Informing and Advising microskills as well as responding effectively to no‐change talk (Resistance or Sustaining). The format will be interactive and experiential in nature. Participants will be afforded an opportunity to obtain focused practice and will receive individualized feedback regarding their MI skills with student and trainer ratings. There will be a brief introduction to MIA‐STEP, a format for use of MI as a supervisory tool.

NACCTP: Pharmacology II

$199

with Ryan Kennedy, PsyD, LAC, LMFT, LPC, RN

Calendar Sep 17, 2020 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: Neuroscience and genetic research on addiction continues to make significant progress toward understanding the changes in the brain that underlie drug use and behaviors. The research has the potential to significantly affect both the way in which we think about addiction, and those that suffer from it. Addictive drugs have habit-forming actions that can be localized to a variety of brain regions that can activate the reward circuitry in the brain. This class will explore the neurobiological basis of addiction and how addictive drugs produce neurochemical changes in the brain’s reward pathway. It will also explore new technologies for treatment and prevention based on brain science. Additionally, functional changes to the brain and the brain’s ability to recover after exposure to drugs of abuse, medical problems associated with substance abuse, and the use of pharmacological assists in recovery will be discussed.

  • DATE: September 17 and 18, 2020 (Thursday & Friday).
