Substance Abuse Training Session (March 27, Nashville, TIP 50)
Wednesday, March 27, 2013 from 10:45 AM to 12:15 PM (CDT)
Implementing TIP 50 for Administrators is a 1.5 hour training regarding how to implement SAMHSA's "TIP 50: Addressing Suicidal Thoughts and Behavior in Substance Abuse Treatment". It is primarily intended for administrators, middle management and supervisors.
While the TIP 50 is a best-practice guideline for working with clients with suicidal ideation and behavior in a substance abuse treatment setting, the model can be applied to a variety of agency settings. It conveys both evidence-based and "front-line" information regarding how to work to effectively work with suicidal clients, protecting them, as well as other clients, your staff, and your agency.
Each participant will receive a copy of the TIP 50 and supportive documents. It focuses both on providing appropriate counseling methods and administrative support of these methods.
