Training Overview Description

Description

Traditional treatment is designed for those with a severe alcohol use disorder, leaving the majority experiencing problems without appropriate services. With the DSM-5 now viewing substance use disorders on a spectrum, clinicians need resources appropriate for all levels of alcohol use. There is over 50 years of research that supports the harm reduction strategy of alcohol moderation as an effective treatment option.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will be able to describe why harm reduction is an effective treatment option for the majority of alcohol users.

  • Participants will be able to predict who is a candidate for alcohol moderation using the Alcohol Moderation Assessment.

  • Participants will be able to develop and monitor an alcohol moderation plan.

Content Level

Intermediate level: courses provide information that builds on knowledge practitioners with some experience already have. These courses focus on skill-building or adding knowledge, possibly following a brief overview of basic information, and involve using information in concrete situations and understanding the underlying structure of the material.

Who Should Attend

Addiction professionals, employee assistance professionals, social workers, mental health counselors, professional counselors, psychologists, and other helping professionals that are interested in learning about addiction-related matters.
