The Welsh Centre for Action on Dependency and Addiction is hosting its latest conference on Co-occurring Substance Use and Mental Health.
The event will take place on Thu, 7 November 2019 in Porthcawl.
The conference will address the question- How do we best meet the needs of people affected by co-occurring substance use and mental health?
This webinar will present an update on research into co-occurring mental and substance use disorders among young people in Australia.
It will ask:
Harmful alcohol use is known to increase the risk of alcohol dependence as well as physical conditions such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and cirrhosis.
Alcohol use disorder (AUD) is a common co-occurring disorder in people with mental health conditions. This can negatively impact the course and treatment outcomes.
The greatest challenge using motivational interviewing (MI) may be finding the “true” ambivalence it’s supposed to address. This webinar is designed to assist clinicians who want to use MI effectively with clients with co-occurring disorders. By returning to the basics and exploring the areas of focus and evocation, each participant will learn when it’s appropriate to use MI.

Cognitive and Mindfulness‐Based Therapy for Adolescents with Co‐Occurring Post‐Traumatic Stress and Substance Use Disorder
Early life experiences of trauma are known to significantly increase the risk of substance use in adolescence and adulthood. It has been suggested that individuals may use alcohol or drugs as a means of temporarily relieving themselves from psychological distress, however this can lead to increased emotional dysregulation in the long term.
Dilemmas in Recovery‑Oriented Practice to Support People with Co‑Occurring Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders
Recovery-oriented practice is recommended in services for people with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. Understanding practitioners’ perceptions of recovery-oriented services may be a key component of implementing recovery principles in day-to-day practice.
Participants will be introduced to terminology, assessment and treatment strategies and models related to co-occurring treatment. The training will provide foundational knowledge on evidence-based practices in the field of behavioral health including differential diagnosis of individuals that have a substance use and mental health co-morbidity.
