Instructor: Joy Chudzynski, PsyD
This online training provides an introduction to the evolving field of co-occurring mental health, substance use, and physical health disorders that are prevalent in DMH consumers. The training will review the effects of commonly used substances and will introduce participants to the epidemiology, prevalence, and neuroscience of co-occurring disorders. Participants will learn about the conceptualization of co-occurring disorders and how their interaction affects screening, assessment, and treatment. Participants will also be introduced to two chronic medical conditions that are common in DMH consumers and the relationship with mental health and substance use. The training also includes treatment considerations and strategies to accommodate the cognitive impairments often present in consumers with co-occurring mental health, substance use, and physical health disorders.
At the conclusion of the course, viewers will be able to: (1) describe at least three mental health and medical consequences of substance use; (2) describe at least two chronic medical conditions that often co-occur with mental health disorders; (3) describe at least two strategies to address cognitive impairments that affect treatment with consumers with substance use disorders.
