The Intersection of Trauma, Addiction and Mental Health

Share this on:
Let's Talk - A Professional Development Webinar Series

Unresolved trauma and unaddressed mental health issues can undermine a patient’s progress in addiction treatment and recovery. Care providers have a complexity of considerations to weigh in determining the most effective path forward. The ability to recognize the intersectionality of issues and assess the multiplicity of symptoms can mean the difference between creating a safe, culturally responsive healing environment for the patient or potentially interfering with the treatment process. Join clinician and educator Princess Drake, PsyD, to review strength-based and evidence-based assessment tools and treatment approaches. You will gain insight and strategies to further enhance your ability to advocate, educate and provide interventions for patients at various levels of care.

- Recognize factors that influence the intersectionality of trauma, addiction and mental health
- Identify the implications of trauma and cultural factors in working with patients at various levels of care
- Understand how the experience of historical and/or complex trauma can affect early recovery and management of mental health symptoms
