VIRTUAL--Developing Multidisciplinary Treatment Plans Informed by The ASAM Criteria and Biopsychosocial Assessment

This is an exclusive training for University of North Texas. Please contact the hosting agency for registration details.

About the event

In this 2-day workshop we will review the Six Dimensions of the ASAM Criteria and the biopsychosocial assessment as foundational aspects and structures to develop multidisciplinary treatment plans. Led by a psychologist, social worker and a licensed addiction counselor, this interdisciplinary practical workshop will emphasize engagement and readiness to change as a critical dimension to understand motivational aspects of behavior change. Attendees will have the opportunity for immediate application of skills during the in-depth clinical case studies presented each day of the workshop; specifically, thinking through and discussing practical considerations such as delivery of virtual care, cultural diversity, co-occurring conditions, trauma and chronic pain.
