ADHD is a common comorbidity with addiction and mental health disorders. The field of neuroscience has taught us how to get to the root cause of ADHD symptoms and how to correct the defects that cause symptoms. Join us to learn everything you need to know about ADHD. Oftentimes professionals working with clients with ADHD are at a loss for treatment options beyond medication. There are many options touted to help but it can be confusing to know which treatments are actually effective and worth trying. We’ll cover the relationship between ADHD and addiction, symptoms, diagnosis, and research-based options for treatments that work!

Circle Up! Adding Psychotherapy Groups To Your Practice

*This presentation is no longer eligible for the 1 CE credit*

As the former president of the Four Corners Group Psychotherapy Society, one of the most common things that I hear is “how do you get a group off of the ground!?” So many clinicians have aspirations to add a group to their practice but hit a wall when it’s time to start marketing it, or, they start a group only to see it fizzle and die a few months later! In most cases what is lacking is not the creativity of the therapist but a clear marketing plan and integration of the group into the business model of their practice. In this workshop, you’ll not only learn how to create a marketing plan for your psychotherapy group but you’ll leave feeling more confident in your growing identity as a Group Psychotherapist.
