DBT and the 12-Step Model for Addiction Treatment

with Greg Holich, MS, LPC, of Timberline Knolls

ACEPLogo

*One CE credit hour available through the NBCC for qualified participants

Description: The four modalities of dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) are mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and emotion regulation. These skills can be invaluable to those in addiction recovery and complement the 12-step model for addiction treatment. DBT is highly effective at treating addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders, particularly anxiety, eating disorders, and self-harming behaviors.

In this workshop, participants will learn more about the principles of DBT and how they can be applied to support clients in a clinical setting for addiction treatment.

Learning Objectives:

1.  Participants will gain knowledge about the framework and principles of Dialectical Behavior Therapy.
2.  Participants will understand the 4 modalities of DBT in the treatment of substance abuse disorders.
3.  Participants will recognize practical ways of blending DBT and 12-Step components in clinical interventions and client support.

Presenter: Greg Holich, MS, LPC, of Timberline Knolls

Greg facilitates daily Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills training groups with adults and adolescents, including one-on-one skills coaching. He coordinates the DBT program, which includes training new clinical staff and overseeing the daily operation of the DBT team.

Prior to joining Timberline Knolls, Greg worked as a resident advisor in group homes run by DuPage County for adults with long-term mental illness and also provided case management services to individuals with severe mental illness in an assisted living facility. In addition, he worked with at-risk adolescent girls with developmental disabilities in a partial hospitalization program.

Greg received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from North Central College and a Master of Science degree in Clinical Psychology from Benedictine University.

Families and Addiction: Understanding the Development of the Addiction Family System and Supporting Recovery

with Steve Wright, LCPC, RDDP, of Timberline Knolls

ACEPLogo*One CE credit hour available through the NBCC for qualified participants

Description: Addiction affects individuals and families in unique and profound ways. When someone is struggling with addiction, their family members will often take on different roles to sustain the family and keep things afloat. While this might seem like a good familial coping tool in the short-term, it can enable the addicted person’s behaviors and ultimately harm the family dynamic.

In this workshop, participants will learn more about the development of the addicted family system and how families can better support their loved ones in recovery. This is beneficial for clinicians who work with the addiction population, as well as families looking for practical tools for sustainable change.

Learning Objectives:

1.  Participants will gain knowledge about the development of an addicted family system.
2.  Participants will receive insight into the challenges addicted families face in changing to a supportive stance with the addicted person.
3.  Participants will learn practical tips for families to create the best chance for recovery and support.
