Dual Diagnosis: Mental health and addictions

Many people who struggle with mental health and addictions are suffering the consequences of untreated trauma. In this workshop you will learn the skills to identify signs of trauma, explore alternative support strategies and work with individual case studies-

Most services specialise in dealing with either mental health or addictions. Traditionally there has been a void in service provision for people who experience complex trauma, mental health issues and addictions.

This two-day workshop provides the framework to work systemically and holistically with both issues at the same time. You will learn new approaches to work with people affected. You will gain understanding of how underlying untreated trauma has an effect on people´s mental health who adopt  behaviours to deal with the symptoms.
