Improving Treatment Outcomes: What are we Missing?

What works and what doesn’t in the treatment of substance use disorders. This presentation will explore strategies that include, intersectionality, advocacy, critical race theory and multicultural competencies that can improve effectiveness in treatment by unpacking the unique needs of clients in their recovery process. The training will highlight ways counselors can better advocate for the intersectional needs of their clients to enhance the treatment experience and improve outcomes. Goals and objectives of the training will include being able to identify treatment strategies, policies and practices that are currently effective based on research, and those that aren't. Participants will be asked to explore how their own work with clients could be enhanced if they build upon the presented ideas. Attendees will also walk away with ideas for treatment planning and group/individual therapeutic activities that incorporate the above outlined content. This is an interactive training that incorporates the use of PowerPoint, discussion, a question and answer session, and use of case studies.
