Recovery 101 (4 CECs)
Every day, agency personnel, clinicians and social workers are tasked with helping individuals in planning for a successful recovery to conquer their "problems". When we frame the conversation from this approach, planning is dictated by a deficits focus that often results in client resistance, frustration and unmet goals. Person-centered, strengths-based planning helps clients recognize their potential, identify and mobilize Recovery Capital and understand how their problems are barriers to their goals. Person-Centered planning supports a successful collaboration between agency personnel and the individual. In this training, participants will learn concepts of surviving and thriving that are integral to helping clients create goals. Trainees will learn strategies to foster a collaborative helping relationship that supports the ongoing process of planning. This interactive experiential training will teach concepts and strategies that can be implemented for successful client goal setting and improved recovery planning outcomes.Speaker: David Howe, LCSW
Biology of Addiction (4.5 CECs)
In Biology of Addiction I participants are introduced to the fundamental processes of neurotransmission and the central nervous system. This training assumes that participants have not revisited the study human biology since high school. The information is presented in an accessible format with the purpose of having participants develop an appreciation for the impact of substances on brain function that lead to clients continued use despite tragic consequences. The material is approached from a counselor perspective (not a medical or basic research perspective) with the objective of providing participants with the basic information that they need to educate and empower clients. Biology of Addiction I introduces participants to an overview of the impact of alcohol, opiates, and stimulants on the body and brain. Participants will learn about the risk factors to various organs and systems of the body that result from the use of alcohol, opiates, and stimulants. A variety of resources suitable for clients engagement and education on the biology of addiction will be presented.Speaker: Lauren Doninger, Ed.D, LADC, LPC

Participants will learn about the constant "innovation" in drug development that results in an every changing landscape of drugs of abuse and challenges to consistent regulation (e.g., spice, salvia, bath salts). Trends in drug use will be discussed and the particular problem of prescription drugs (and subsequent rise in heroin use) will be presented.Speaker: Lauren Doninger, Ed.D, LADC, LPC
