About this workshop
As the treatment industry explodes with new providers on the scene seemingly every day, unethical marketing and business practices have professionals and consumers questioning the field of addiction and mental health treatment, making it difficult to know who to trust and where to go for help. It is essential that out-patient providers and families understand the business of treatment so they may better navigate their way through finding the help they need. This 1.5-hour workshop offers a glimpse into the business side of saving lives and will provide:

  • An overview of the treatment industry and changes over the last decade that have influenced the field of addiction and mental health treatment
  • A review of relevant laws and ethical standards in marketing and service delivery

About this workshop
Traumatic events are an everyday occurrence. For many individuals, traumatic experiences have changed the way they function, altered their thoughts, and resulted in profound feelings of depression and worthlessness. Many people struggle to find the gift in their pain and are unable to recognize their own resilience or the beauty of their survival. This workshop will examine the concept of PTSD and will review pertinent research related to the physical and emotional sequelae of trauma. It will also review the concept of resilience and specific strategies to foster resilience in those recovering from PTSD and related co-occurring disorders. Attendees will learn various treatment modalities that are effective in the treatment of PTSD symptoms.
