Program Description:

This workshop will focus on the treatment of moderate to severe substance use disorders and recommended modification clinicians can make in their group practices to more effectively treat individuals struggling with addiction. Utilizing a Modified Interpersonal approach, this workshop will provide an experiential base for the advancement of group skills, and detail techniques and interventions specific to patients with moderate to severe substance use disorders. This workshop will also explore the importance of integrating Modified Interpersonal Group Psychotherapy (MIGP) with the community support many patients find in organizations such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Women for Sobriety. A review of the biopsycho-social-spiritual definition of addictive disease will give further focus to the workshop and provide the theoretical underpinning supporting MIGP. Attention will be given to the importance of pharmacological interventions particularly for patients with moderate to severe alcohol or opioid use disorders in addition to the support they receive from their group treatment experience.

Objectives:

At the end of the workshop participants will be able to do the following:

  1. Participants will explore modifications needed in group psychotherapy for the effective and safe treatment of individuals with moderate to severe substance use disorders.
  2. Participants will discuss the usage of medications in addition to group psychotherapy for the treatment of moderate to severe substance use disorders.
  3. Participants will review potential pitfalls inherent in group psychotherapy when treating patients with moderate to severe substance use disorders.
  4. Participants will understand moderate to severe substance use disorders through the lens of biological vulnerability, emotional lability, social isolation and spiritual bankruptcy.
  5. Participants will examine the role of spirituality in the group treatment of patients with moderate to severe substance use disorders.
  6. Participants will review the interplay between Modified Interpersonal Group Psychotherapy (MIGP) and community-based support groups for patients with moderate to severe substance use disorders.
