    Supervision in the behavioral healthcare field has become increasingly complicated as agencies employ staff from a diversity of disciplines, educational and experience levels, and multi-cultural backgrounds with a multiplicity of ethical codes. These trends press the conscientious supervisor to maintain the traditional ethical boundaries of care while adjusting to situations created in a “managed care” work environment. Clinical supervision is a critical part of the counseling process. It requires special thought, careful preparation, and an approach tailored to the individual strengths and area for growth of the supervisee. This training will examine the ethical issues and responsibilities of the clinical supervisor and discuss specific skills to provide effective supervision. It will provide participants the opportunity to conduct an ethical practices risk assessment of their agency. This training presents ethical theories and concepts that require supervisory clinical experience and knowledge to successfully integrate them with clinical practice – it is not intended for non-supervisory personnel.

    Motivational Interviewing (MI) supports client determination while being an effective evidence based method. It is a therapeutic process that has been shown to work very effectively with resistant, “challenging” clients. The spirit of MI is based on respect, understanding the client’s need for autonomy and compassion. The important aspects of MI are to look at the social worker’s influence on the client’s behavior. This two-day program offers behavioral healthcare professionals an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of MI and to begin to incorporate them into their work.

    America’s healthcare system is rapidly evolving and the boundaries of the traditional treatment system are blurring. Newly emerging integrated care models call for expanded interdisciplinary teams comprised of professionals, para-professionals, community health-workers, and peer advocates who may be employed by different organizations. Participating on these “virtual” treatment teams will require addictions and mental health professionals to reconcile historic interpretations of 42 CFR Part 2 with the role of technology, social media and ever-changing State and Federal regulations related to sharing of protected health information across organizations. This workshop will provide participants with an overview of the complex legal and ethical issues facing today’s behavioral health workforce as they adapt to these new models and learn to meet the mandates of HIPAA-II, the HITECH ACT, Meaningful Use Stage 2, and the Affordable Care Act.

    Women offenders, on average, are less violent and more responsive to programming than are their male counterparts. Successful programs should relate to the social realities from which the women come and to which they will return. It appears that the focus should be on effective social, therapeutic and cultural approaches that incorporate a strength based approached in working with this challenging population.
    This training will explore gender responsive strategies targeting women offenders who are involved in the criminal justice system. A historical view of women offenders, victimization and the impact of the cycle of abuse will be discussed. Specific attention will be given to the supervision of women in the community on probation/parole, with emphasis on the core elements of the Women Offender Case Management Model.

    Opioid abuse and addiction (e.g., heroin, OxyContin) remains a critical national public health concern. In 2002, tablet formulations of the medication Buprenorphine were approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of opioid addiction. In order to prepare the field to effectively integrate this new treatment, the Buprenorphine Treatment Blending Team developed an awareness training to disseminate information and enhance awareness among multidisciplinary (non-physician) addiction professionals about Buprenorphine treatment. This training is designed to provide a broad overview of the medication, its effects, and the role of non-physician practitioners in providing and supporting the treatment of individuals receiving this medication.

    In recent years, substance abuse treatment professionals have become increasingly aware of ethical issues related to boundaries and dual relationships.

    Many people who arrive at the doors of human service agencies already have been overwhelmed by unresponsive institutions. Feelings of hopelessness, alienation and vulnerability describe their overall outlook on their lives; however, many of these clients only seek to play a significant role in the system that affects their daily living. The supervising agency and staff should use a variety of techniques with the client to assist him/her in learning alternative behaviors that will contribute to their overall success. This can be accomplished by developing a goal oriented case plan that ensures ownership and acceptance of services while matching the client’s dynamic factors with appropriate services. The key to a successful case plan is to engage the client in a collaborative change process through the building of a supervision alliance. This engagement enhances intrinsic motivation, targets appropriate needs and establishes behavioral reinforcements. In this workshop we will learn the techniques to develop a complete needs assessment through interviewing strategies, identifying and exploring targeted needs of the client, providing clear expectations for supervision and implementing a process that is as important as the plan.

    Group therapy has been identified as an important clinical tool in many treatment settings. Specifically for individuals addressing addictive disorders, it can be a vital part of their treatment and ongoing recovery. When properly facilitated, groups can be supportive and therapeutic. It is important to consider certain factors in the implementation of a group program. Too often groups are organized and “put together” with little preparation. This can inadvertently create a setting in which participants are left disconnected from the group session. This training will review the standard components for group sessions, challenges in the implementation of group programming and how to create a group program specific for your treatment setting.

    Many times treatment providers are trained in specific disciplines such as substance abuse disorders or in psychiatric disorders. Because of this it is not uncommon to treat individuals with what is most familiar to the clinician. Unfortunately the inability to treat both illnesses simultaneously has limited more positive outcomes.
    This training will focus on the importance of cross training in both substance abuse and mental health. We will review diagnostic criteria for identification of presenting issues.

    Special attention will be given to the assessment and treatment planning process which allows for an integration of treatment. A portion of the training's focus will be on case presentation to determine specific treatment modalities.
