NOTE: This ACDP training runs 3 hours- from 9am to noon! It meets PCB requirements for the Ethics requirement for recertification of addiction professionals.
What does it take to be a drug and alcohol professional? We know it takes good communication skills, empathy and boundaries to name a few BUT is it a profession? Over time the work has evolved from a fellowship to requiring very specific education, certifications, licensure and codes of conduct. Yet, being in a recovery is still seen, by some, as a priority. These questions remain heavily debated even as science continues to inform more and more about the roots of this disease. In this workshop we will debate the evolution of the profession and how that impacts both staff, clients and ethics.
- Discuss the evolution of the field of recovery
- Consider the role of a “two hatter”
- Debate science vs experience as they related to professional skills
- Consider how the roles challenge ethical decision making
