Over the last 25 years, a number of highly effective approaches for treating addictions have been developed, tested, and implemented in the field. This five-week seminar will provide exposure and hands-on training in some of the leading evidence-based treatments currently available for the treatment of addictive and compulsive behaviors. Participants will learn from experienced clinicians, and gain insights into the benefits as well as the difficulties of applying these approaches. The course is designed as didactic AND experiential, with role-playing and application of techniques to real-world cases.

Curriculum includes:

  • Principles of Evidence-Based Treatments (What is “Evidence”?)
  • Motivational Approaches (Motivational Interviewing, Group Motivational Approaches)
  • Cognitive-Behavioral Approaches for Substance Use Disorders (Community Reinforcement Approach – CRA, Community Reinforcement and Family Training – CRAFT)
  • Pharmacotherapies
  • Evidence-based Treatments for addressing co-occurring issues such as PTSD, OCD and other mood disorders (e.g., DBT, Prolonged Exposure, Cognitive-Processing Therapy, EMDR, Unified Protocol, Exposure-Response Prevention)

The Directors at the Center for Motivation and Change bring a wealth of experience to share from both clinical and research realms of addiction treatment. Trainings are designed to be stimulating, provocative of new thinking, and practical to everyday clinical application.
