CRISIS INTERVENTION WITH SUBSTANCE ABUSE, MENTAL HEALTH & CO-OCCURRING DISORDER CLIENTS
September 17 | 9 am – 3:30 pm | Trainer: Mary-K O’Sullivan
CT Nonprofits, Hartford  |  Fee: $60
Identifying and intervening in crisis situations that may arise in a variety of settings is a critical role of a counselor. This course will explore the core function and competency as defined in substance abuse and co-occurring disorders treatment. Proactive assessment and strategies will be discussed, and practice sessions will be conducted.

VICARIOUS TRAUMA & ITS IMPACT ON SERVICE PROVIDERS
September 17 | 9 am – 3:30 pm | Trainer: Mary-K O’Sullivan
CT Nonprofits, Hartford  |  Fee: $60
Vicarious trauma occurs when the service provider experiences various symptoms as a result of their attempts to assist the client. the most common term used to describe vicarious trauma is “burn out.” Vicarious trauma can occur swiftly after a single event or can build up over years as the service provider continues to bare witness to the adversity that their clients face. The impacts of vicarious trauma are often unconscious and in that way can be building to a crisis point without the individual being aware of the damage that is being caused. In this training participants will:
  • Explore the signs and symptoms of vicarious trauma in themselves and their co-workers
  • Develop strategies to recognize the symptoms early in their development
  • Take a self evaluation that will assist them in realizing their own level of potential burnout
  • Construct a wellness plan for themselves that focuses upon self-care as a protective factor against vicarious trauma and burnout.

ETHICAL ISSUES & CONFIDENTIALITY

Marlin Center, New Haven  |  Fee: $60

GROUP APPROACHES TO TREATMENT OF ADDICTION & CO-OCCURRING DISORDERS November 17 | 9 am – 3:30 pm | Trainer: Mary-K O’Sullivan
