2019 NYSED and OASAS-approved BPTI training information. . . .

Diagnosis and treatment change to meet challenges of Co-occurring Disorders, personality disorders, new drug fads and new or cultural spins on use. There is a continuing need for flexible, adaptable methods for improving Mental Health and SUD (Substance Use Disorder) diagnosis and treatment. Also, technological advances and new laws have made it important to re-examine ethics for clinical counseling.

Four updated-for-2019 trainings have been finalized for social workers, mental health counselors and other clinicians. 

About the Trainings
The NEW Ethics for the Counseling Professions course is a course that covers ethical values which are the grounding for ethical counselor practice. Course covers social work, mental health counselor and CASAC ethical codes, covers ethical decision making in the areas of confidentiality, technological advances, immigration and addictions. Bioethics research fellow Dr. Tim Campbell walks us through cases which require ethical decision-making in all areas.
Each “Essentials. . . .” training is designed to bolster clinician confidence  and motivation to use Best Practices. Each training emphasizes the effectiveness and feasibility of CBT or MI in SUD practice and also focuses on specific practices used with those with Co-Occurring Disorders. The training videos illustrate the use of Best Practices in treatment.  The filmed scenarios included in the trainings are typical and challenging ones for clinicians.
The 2019 BPTI trainings, (“Essential CBT for Substance Use Disorder Treatment,”” Essential Motivational Interviewing for Substance Use Disorder Treatment,”  “Essential Co-Occurring Disorders for Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Treatment” and “Ethics for the Counseling Professions”)  focus on Best Practices for use with all clients. Clinical practices are demonstrated for clients with Substance Use and Co-Occurring Disorders, discussing and demonstrating Best Practice  use.  Find out more about the trainings by clicking on the training links.

CBT and Motivational Interviewing methods have proved to be effective with Substance Use Disorders that involve alcohol, marijuana and cocaine, among the top four psychoactive substances used by teens and adults (SAMHSA, 2016). 

Clients with the combination of Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders which is termed Co-occurring Disorders benefit from the integration of  Motivational Interviewing and CBT practices.
