    ENCOUNTERING SUBSTANCE USE IN CLINICAL PRACTICE:
    EMERGING ISSUES & DIVERGENT PERSPECTIVES - 6 CEs
    (APA Accreditation Pending)



        VIEW CONFERENCE AGENDA

    The 2018 SDPA Fall Conference focuses on the very timely topic of problematic substance use encountered in psychology clinical practice.  There has been a rapid increase in the use of prescription and non-prescription opioid drugs in the U.S. over the last two decades.  Drug overdoses have become the leading cause of death of Americans under the age of 50 with two-thirds of those deaths from opioids. Behaviors related to alcohol abuse and alcoholism in the U.S. have also become more problematic.  

    Over 90% of psychologists report encountering problematic substance use in their practices. Yet psychologists often feel inadequately trained to assess, conceptualize, and treat these clients.  Our 2018 Fall Conference aims to provide the clinical practitioner with the emerging issues in the problem of substance use and the divergent perspectives in conceptualizing and treating clients with these very compelling and complex issues.
