In this course, you will review updates to the widely adopted transtheoretical model (TTM), or stages-of-change to help better inform the treatment you provide to individuals with substance use disorders. The information in this training can be translated to other illnesses that require behavior change to take place. You will learn about each stage of change, a staple in recovery-oriented language, as it relates to an individual’s self-motivation to address their own recovery.
Using case vignettes and interactive exercises, you will learn how to apply these skills when you need them most in your own setting. This training is geared toward behavioral health clinicians and those who are at the forefront of delivering treatment for individuals with substance use disorders in behavioral, addiction, and integrated treatment settings. After taking this course, you will have gained a deeper understanding of how to more effectively translate the stages of changes into your everyday practice, both theoretically and clinically.
