ATTC Network Training of Trainers
Technology Assisted Care for Substance Use Disorders
On behalf of the Addiction Technology Transfer Center Network, the Northeast and Caribbean ATTC would like to announce a Training of Trainers (ToT) event titled, “Technology Assisted Care for Substance Use Disorders.” Advances in computer-assisted interventions for substance use disorders show great promise for increasing reach, improving services, and enhancing patient health outcomes;. This workshop describes how clinicians can extend and enhance their practice by incorporating specific interventions such as “TES” which is a web-based version of the Community Reinforcement Approach plus contingency management approach. Attendees will have the opportunity to observe and experience the web-based interventions.
Prerequisite Requirements: 1) must be an experienced trainer (e.g., a minimum of two years of general training experience); 2) should have a background in behavioral health and substance use; 3) must have a baseline level of knowledge of current and emerging trends in the use of technology for treating substance use.
Structure: During the first day of the ToT, participants will be exposed to the workshop material. The second day will provide participants the opportunity to prepare and practice teaching portions of the new curriculum, and receive feedback from the master trainers and other participants. Registrations will not be taken on-site; you must pre-register using the link below. A maximum of 20 participants will be allowed to attend this event (up to two participants per regional ATTC). Registration will be on a first come, first serve basis.
- Provide an overview of Technology-Based Interventions including TES and CBT4CBT
- Present research findings regarding the efficacy of a variety of computer-based interventions.
- Enhance providers confidence that technology-based interventions may be feasible and desirable in actual practice.
- Provide suggestions for overcoming barriers to implementing technology based interventions.
