Substance Use Treatment and the Stages of Change Model

 

Are the people you serve resistant to change? Do you find it difficult to help clients move from one stage of recovery to the next? Are you able to tailor the interventions you deliver to the unique needs of the clients you are serving when they seem unready or unmotivated to change their behavior? Do you know how to avoid common provider pitfalls that inhibit client motivation at particular stages of change?

In this course, you will review updates to the widely adopted transtheoretical model (TTM), or stages-of-change to help better inform the treatment you provide to individuals with substance use disorders. The information in this training can be translated to other illnesses that require behavior change to take place. You will learn about each stage of change, a staple in recovery-oriented language, as it relates to an individual’s self-motivation to address their own recovery.

Using case vignettes and interactive exercises, you will learn how to apply these skills when you need them most in your own setting. This training is geared toward behavioral health clinicians and those who are at the forefront of delivering treatment for individuals with substance use disorders in behavioral, addiction, and integrated treatment settings. After taking this course, you will have gained a deeper understanding of how to more effectively translate the stages of changes into your everyday practice, both theoretically and clinically.
