This live interactive webinar covers the importance of establishing a therapeutic alliance with clients who have co-occurring disorders. Good provider–client rapport can enhance treatment outcomes and completion and is a cornerstone of providing high-quality care. When working with clients who have co-occurring disorders, counselors and other providers should be aware of clinical factors and concerns—like confidentiality matters, use of empathy, and cultural responsiveness—that can make the therapeutic relationship more successful and increase the chances that clients will achieve and maintain recovery. For co-occurring mental disorders, like depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and SMIs, specific treatment strategies (e.g., selecting appropriate therapeutic interventions; structuring clinical sessions) can improve client adherence and outcomes. This webinar draws from SAMSHA’s updated TIP 42* and other current sources to teach the most up-to-date treatment approaches.
Using an engaging and instructive teaching style, we will discuss fundamental theory and skills. We will also break out into small groups to discuss how to integrate the information into your agency or practice. These webinars are live and interactive. You can ask questions and communicate with the presenter and other participants. Instructor uses high quality professional audio and video equipment to make your experience as smooth as possible.
