  • Measuring Clinical Outcomes: The Importance of Why, the Integrity of What & the Significance of How

    Frequently referred to as “measurement-based care” or “routine outcomes measurement,” using objective data to track the impact of care, treatment, or services has become a high-profile issue in the behavioral healthcare field.  Progress and outcome data derived through standardized instruments may be used to inform goals and objectives, monitor individual progress, and inform decisions related to individual plans for care, treatment, or services.

  • Under Pressure: Current Challenges of College Women that Impact Behavioral Health

    This presentation focuses on the college environment and challenges presented to female students as they navigate young adulthood.

    Speaker Courtney Grimes will discuss treatment interventions for anxiety, depression, addiction, perfectionism and body image. She'll also discuss how these interventions pertain to a high-risk population.

  • The Neuropsychological Basis of Experiential Therapies

    During this webinar, speaker Dr. Matthew Tatum will educate attendees on the neuropsychology of addiction. Participants will learn the neuroscientific evidence and rationael behind experiential and holistic forms of addiction treatment. Tatum will also discuss ethical ways to communicate the evidence base for utilizing these therapies in drug and alcohol treatment to payers, referral sources, and the community.

  • Mission: Admissions! How Differentiation Can Help Stretch Your Marketing Budget

    While many treatment centers view their admissions team as “the best,” that’s often a subjective point of view. This session will show you how to increase your close rates, achieve an effective return on investment of your marketing efforts, and discover opportunities to better serve prospective patients and referents. Learn to clearly communicate differentiators with impact to enhance the effectiveness of your admissions efforts.

  • Caring for Our Veterans

    Veterans, whether in combat or not, are more susceptible to trauma and addiction than the general population. For some veterans, finding an entryway into treatment may be a barrier. The perception of safety and trust is an important precursor for trauma and addiction treatment.

  • Cultural Competence in Mental Healthcare

    Developing cultural competence is a process, not an endpoint. Features of a culturally competent health practitioner include understanding the concept of culture and how it can influence emotions. Clinicians must demonstrate a willingness to explore culture from the perspectives of those from diverse backgrounds while leveraging appropriate strategies for working with such individuals.

    This presentation will outline a philosophy of awareness and individualization and how it can be an asset to quality care.

  • Interventions with Eating Disorders

    This presentation will address symptomology of anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder and other conditions that are growing as recognized problems. Components of the three basic models of intervention, Johnson, Systemic and Invitational, will be reviewed as well as some lesser known models like the CRAFT model.

  • Growing Like a Weed: Cannabis Impact on Adolescent Behavioral Health

    The rising tide of legalization of marijuana has led to the development of a perspective that it cannot cause any harm.  While marijuana may not be the most addictive substance when compared to others, it can still lead to problematic behaviors, including an unhealthy method of coping with emerging mood disorders.

  • Opioid Use Disorder Patients: Characteristics and Outcomes from Residential Co-Occurring Disorder Treatment

    As opioid use has increased, questions regarding the specific needs and challenges of this population remain largely unanswered.  These individuals are often classified as being difficult to treat and/or considered to possess more significant issues than other substance users.  Speaker Siobhan Morse will review a study that seeks to determine what, if any, meaningful differences exist between opiate and non-opiate users who enter voluntary, private, residential treatment, and the impact of any differences relative to treatment motivation, length and outcomes.
