Dual Diagnosis (one day)

The Training Exchange
Delivery Method: Face-to-face

We will deliver the training to a smaller group in a large room. We have been working closely with the venue to ensure we have Covid-safe measures and clear guidance in place.

If for any reason the course cannot be delivered face-to-face (e.g. guidance changes, there is a local lock-down, the trainer has symptoms), we will take a flexible and responsive approach to keep people learning – which will include delivering the training on the same day as a live interactive online session, or transferring bookings to the next available dates.

A day of learning and reflection on the complexities of dual diagnosis. Participants explore the interactions between mental illness and substance misuse, establish a framework for assessment, and practice evidenced based approaches to effective engagement and treatment for this client group.
