6 Overview of Co-occurring Psychiatric and Substance Use Issues
Individuals with co-occurring psychiatric and substance use disorders present in large numbers in our behavioral healthcare system. In addition to having poorer outcomes, they also are more likely to have a higher likelihood of relapse, incarceration, and homelessness. Clinicians are traditionally trained to be either mental health clinicians or substance use clinicians, but not both. Recent national epidemiological studies and local data analysis indicate that the percentage of individuals with serious mental illness who have co-occurring substance use disorders and those with serious addiction who also have a psychiatric diagnosis is significant. The result is that dual diagnosis is an expectation, not an exception.

7 Why? An Inside Look at Why Youth Use Drugs and Alcohol
In order to effectively work with youth, it is important to have an understanding of what influences their beliefs, attitudes, and behavior with regard to alcohol and drug use. This is important in order to: (1) be more mindful of these issues when working with clients, (2) have a context and understanding of the beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors clients may be manifesting or describing, (3) perform a better comprehensive assessment, and (4) facilitate the development of appropriate responses and interventions while the youth is receiving services as well as after. This workshop will present information regarding the contributing factors that influence the beliefs, attitudes, and behavior of young people with respect to alcohol, illicit drugs, and non medical use of prescription drugs as well as poly-substance abuse patterns.

11 Overview of Depression and Anxiety in Youth and Their Treatment
Depression and anxiety are the most common psychological disorders in youth. It is estimated that 3 million adolescents aged 12 to 17 in the United States had at least one major depressive episode in the past year, with clinically significant anxiety rates estimated at 25% among youth. Fortunately, there are numerous effective forms of treatment available for both depression and anxiety. However, detection and accurate diagnosis is required before successful intervention can be implemented. In this seminar, participants will be provided with a review of depression and anxiety in youth and their treatment. Topic areas to be covered include how each condition is recognized, diagnosed, and distinguished from other similar conditions. There will be a brief review of epidemiology, comorbidities (e.g., substance use), proposed etiological bases (e.g., putative biological and psychosocial causes, etc.), and treatment approaches. Special attention will be devoted to the variance in rates, symptom profiles, and treatment in the context of developmental, gender, and cultural diversity.
