    Couple Therapy and Possible Substance Misuse: What to Do Next, presented by Dr. Robert Navarra,  Psy.D., LMFT


     

    WHEN:  Friday May 31st, 2019 12pm – 1:00pm (PDT)

    Earn 1 CEU (CAMFT CE #59405)

    Webinar Description 

    Therapists often struggle with knowing how to manage couples therapy when one partner is concerned about the other's substance use or possible problem with compulsive behavior. Is couples therapy contraindicated? Should the therapist ignore the substance concerns and focus on other relationship issues? Should the therapist automatically refer to someone else? The answer to all the above questions is "no", therapists just need a blueprint.

A recording will be accessible to Members only. Note:  The webinar link will be sent via email to registrants on Wednesday May 29th.

    After the webinar, participants will be able to

    1. Apply three evaluation tools for identifying problematic or addictive use.

    2. Describe the continuum of use model of assessment

    3. Apply and integrate a preliminary assessment into the couple therapy

    4. Create a plan of action based on the preliminary assessment
