Virtual Workshop Description
This interactive virtual workshop examines some of the traditional models of prevention, intervention and treatment and their degrees of effectiveness. Participants will be asked to view prevention through a different lens and are given the opportunity (through breakout sessions) to brainstorm new ways of addressing concerns. Updated terminology and best ways to start the conversation with teens and young adults are discussed. Participants are given tools and suggestions such as interviewing, screening, assessment, referrals and a review of levels of care according to ASAM criteria, for starting an Early Intervention Program in their school or community.
This workshop is great for clinicians, policy makers, and anyone in the position to create or impact programming.
In this Virtual Workshop you will:
- Name different types of prevention
- Show an understanding of the importance of starting effective prevention early on
- Differentiate levels of care according to ASAM criteria
- Outline the basics of an Early Intervention Program suited to their population
