Relapse Prevention: Cultural Issues

 

As a professional who works with individuals in recovery, you know that relapse is a common part of the process. In the first of this two-part training series on Relapse Prevention, you learned all about relapse prevention, explored several theoretical frameworks, and identified the most appropriate intervention strategies for the individuals you serve. Based on guidelines from the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment, this second course focuses on how to understand relapse prevention as it relates to specific population groups such as women, minorities, adolescents, the elderly, as well as individuals who identify as lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender. The interactive exercises and detailed case examples that this course offers will provide you some practical guidance on how to implement a relapse prevention program in your own setting. The information in this training is written by Maggie Tapp, LCSW and is appropriate for any level of health care worker who wishes to learn more about relapse prevention.
