Event Details This application-focused workshop offers a practical approach to the ASAM Criteria and how it supports and drives individualized service planning. Participants will understand the relationship between the treatment plan and the use of The ASAM Criteria’s admission, continued stay, transfer and discharge criteria. In addition, participants will learn how to write measurable, individualized treatment plans based on the individualized needs of the client and the dimensional analysis. Behaviour change principles will be discussed to enhance trainees’ understanding of how and why people change and explore ways in which the client’s stage of change impacts and drives a person-centered service plan. Participants’ abilities to develop individualized service planning will be strengthened through core motivational interviewing skills as a way to have better conversations about individualized needs and increase client readiness for and engagement in treatment.
