What works best for whom? Choose the best evidence based approach for your clients. Integrate techniques from motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral and spiritual/existential approaches to the treatment of addictions. Most clients present with multiple problems and with very different levels of motivations to change. This workshop will focus on creating separate and distinct, evidence-based treatment plans for separate and distinct clients. The workshop will focus primarily on integrating motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral techniques and approaches that emphasize the importance of inspiration, values, guiding principles and spiritually related issues. Participants will practice techniques effective with individuals and groups. SMART Recovery, a CBT/REBT-based self-help group approach, will also be discussed.
