Understanding youth substance use through targeted assessment

19 Aug. 2020

insight, Centre for alcohol and other drug training and workforce development in Queensland, is offering Through a shot glass darkly: Understanding youth substance use through targeted assessment through a webinar on 18 August 2020.

Best practice in the treatment of substance use problems involves a comprehensive initial assessment and ongoing monitoring of treatment progress with standardised measures (e.g., validated questionnaire, interview schedule). However, the use of such measures can be time-consuming and raises the question of what should be measured to best guide treatment. This presentation will provide an overview of how theoretically-driven assessment can be harnessed to better personalise treatment and enhance clinical outcomes.

Seminars start at 10:00am AEST (QLD Time).
