The focus of this webinar is to look beyond the complexities of the relationship between addictions and mental illness to the treatment themes that arise when working with co-occurring disorders. Issues of safety, harm reduction and/or abstinence are discussed, along with themes of integrating strategies for working with co-occurring disorders with trauma-informed practices. This webinar provides a framework for working systemically with both addictions and mental illness at the same time.
