ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
This workshop will review core components of Family Behavior Therapy (FBT) as relevant to the treatment of adolescent substance abuse and its associated problem behaviors, including its empirical support. Treatment components will include efficient methods of establishing formal agendas, motivational enhancement, reward system for youth, treatment planning, communication skills training, restructuring the environment to facilitate a drug-free lifestyle, self-control methods of managing negative behaviors, job-getting skills training and concluding treatment and planning for success. Discussions of cultural and developmental issues relevant to treatment implementation will be integrated throughout the course, including when and how to adapt standardized protocols. Methods of evaluating the integrity of FBT implementation will be underschored. Live and video-tape modeling and role-playing will be extensively utilized to achieve requisite skill sets.
SUPPORT OF FBT:
FBT is listed in SAMHSA's National Registry of Evidenced-Based Practices and Programs (NREPP), California's Evidence-Based Clearinghouse (CEBC), the original edition of NIDA's Principles of Drug Addiction Treatment, and other national clearinghouses relevant to evidence-based treatment. In several controlled trials funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIDA, NIMH), FBT has evidenced significantly reduced hard drug, marijuana and alcohol use, depression, youth conduct problems, and has improved school/work attendance, and family functioning. Improvements have been found regardless of type of drug abused, age (adolescents, adults), ethnicity, and gender. Recent published case studies have additionally indicated its promise in other problem areas, including child abuse potential, parental stress, psychiatric illnesses, and domestic violence.
Upon completing this course, it is expected that attendees will be capable of appropriately implementing FBT adolescent-focused intervention protocols with integrity. Those who successfully complete this workshop will develop skills necessary to conceptualize case problems consistent with FBT protocols, develop client goals and treatment plans, engage clients and significant others in treatment, and effectively terminate clients from therapy.
These presentations are intended for psychologists, students of psychology, and other licensed mental health providers. Students are also invited to attend. Seating is limited, so register early!
