About the Program

Research demonstrates a connection between opioid use disorder and increased risk for depression and trauma-related conditions. Despite these correlations, there is a gap in critical access to co-occurring treatment. This seminar will review the complex factors influencing and impacting individuals with opioid use disorder, depression, and trauma. Learn about medications and techniques currently being used to treat this population as well as research-based interventions that can be implemented in your practice. The seminar will also tie in how adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) may lead to the development of early maladaptive schemas (EMSs) and contribute to substance use and other mental health concerns. An overview of the assessment and treatment of EMSs will be included.

  1. Summarize the relationship between opioid use disorder,depression and suicide.

  3. Summarize the progression from adverse childhood experiences,to early maladaptive schemas, to substance use and mental health.
  4. Assess for early maladaptive schemas and integrate theirformulation into treatment planning.
  5. Apply schema therapy techniques to augment your treatment.
