Date and Time: Sunday, September 26, 2021 - 4-6pm (EDT)
Over 165 million people used mind-alerting substances in the U.S. last year alone. 700,000 of them die from overdoses - a number that increases by 4% each year. With all these deaths, more than 35 billion dollars are being allocated from the Federal Budget. With so much training available, we wonder why the number of deaths continue to rise. If doing the same thing over and over, while expecting a different result, is the definition of insanity, then the only way out of this vicious cycle is to do things differently.
Join us and let us look at what has been missing, and learn how to fill that gap and make a significant difference in the lives of our patients and clients.
What you’ll learn
At the end of this online seminar, you will have:
- Learned the framework of the Socratic Motivational Practice to properly assess our patients and clients who use substances.
- Learned the Principles, Techniques, Steps, and Do's and Don'ts of the Socratic Motivational Practice to properly assess our patients and clients who use substances.
- Increased your tools of talking with patients and clients, by identifying at least one thing you will start doing differently at the end of the seminar, as a result of the Socratic Motivational Practice framework.
- Everything you want in one place, including an illustration of how to implement the newly learned skills during our role plays.
- Received your certificate by email after your post-test and evaluation are completed.
