Twelve-Step Facilitation for the Dually Diagnosed Twelve Step Facilitation therapy (TSF) is an evidence-based, manualized intervention that is listed in the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP). TSF has been shown t be effective not only in treating individuals with substance use disorders but also in individuals who have been dually diagnosed with both a substance use disorder and co-occurring mental illness including PTSD and Major Depression. It is currently being implemented in a number of Veterans Administration medical centers. In this workshop the author of TSFDD will present an overview of the intervention and describe its structure, process, and content. Attendees will also have an opportunity to practice TSFDD interventions through role-playing.

Ethics: Managing Risk/Creating ―Best Practice‖ By its very definition, risk assessment refers to making a judgment when there is a certain amount of uncertainty, leaving an unavoidable opportunity for error. With that in mind, how should systems attempt to manage risk? This workshop de- scribes the evolution of codes of ethics in the helping professions; uses case studies to assist participants in developing skills in recognizing ethical dilemmas before they become violations; and finally, utilizes a panel of colleagues for an inter- active discussion on teaching ethics, ethical issues in practice settings and ways of addressing risk management.

nated by Steve and Connirae Andreas.

Mental Health First Aid (Part 2 of 2) One in four Americans lives with a mental health problem each year. Yet, far too many up to twothirds go without treat- ment. Just as CPR training helps a layperson without medical training assist an individual following a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid training helps a layperson assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis.
