~ An important opportunity from our colleagues at the Oregon Social Learning Center ~
November is the last month to sign up, so get in touch soon! Join over 120 counselors and therapists nationwide who are learning to use Contingency Management (CM), an evidence-based addiction treatment for adolescents.
We are seeking counselors/therapists to participate in a study evaluating a training and support program that helps professionals use CM. This family-focused, outpatient substance abuse treatment uses behavior management and cognitive-behavioral approaches to treat adolescent addiction. CM can be a standalone treatment or an adjunct to existing clinic-based mental health treatments.
The study funding from NIDA covers the entire cost of the web-based training, training materials, and ongoing expert consultation, as well as $20 per focus group. A minimum of 15 continuing education units will be available for free. Participants will be trained in CM, will receive a certificate certifying their training, and will need to use CM to treat adolescent substance use/abuse and provide feedback to the researchers about their experience using it.
November is the end of sign-up, so spread the word and get in touch soon if you are interested!
