Most clients present with multiple problems and with very different levels of motivation to change. This workshop will focus on creating evidence-based treatment plans for separate and distinct clients. There will be a focus on integrating motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral interventions, and approaches that emphasize the importance of values, and spiritually-related issues. Participants will have the opportunity to practice techniques that have proven to be effective with individuals and groups and receive supervision. SMART Recovery, an RE & CBT-based self-help group approach, will also be discussed.
