Beck Institute in Chicago
The devastating impact of substance misuse has reached epidemic proportions. Although misuse occurs among diverse groups of people, there are similarities in their misuse patterns. Common characteristics of misuse include cravings and urges to use, maladaptive beliefs about substances and their effects, mood fluctuations, alternating between feeling in-control and helpless, and ambivalence about change.
Led by Allen R. Miller, Ph.D., this experiential workshop will teach participants to use CBT with their clients who struggle with substance misuse. Through demonstrations and roleplays, participants will develop their skill set in delivering CBT for substance misuse. Dr. Miller will teach participants how to conceptualize cases within a CBT framework and use this conceptualization in conjunction with abstinence-based and harm-reduction programs. Participants will learn ways to build the therapeutic relationship and use motivational techniques to promote and foster change.
