Treating the Personality in the Addictive Personality: A Neuroplastic Approach

download

      Presented by: Anthony J. Mele, Psy.D

The co-occurrence of borderline personality disorder and substance abuse disorders are well-documented and pose specific treatment challenges. While borderline personality disorder is often conceptualized as the behavioral manifestation of early life events amenable to intensive psychotherapy rather than biological approaches, more recent research suggests that BPD is a disabling brain disease as well as a personality disorder. Neglecting the neurobiological underpinnings of BPD may render psychotherapeutic intervention only partially successful, thereby reinforcing the cycle of affective instability that often characterizes BPD. This presentation suggests that some individuals with BPD who also have specific deficits in certain brain structure and function might benefit from a neuroplastic approach to BPD and substance abuse treatment.

About the Presenter: 

Dr. Anthony Mele, a licensed psychologist, brings almost twenty-five years of clinical expertise and executive leadership of both the provider and payer sides of behavioral healthcare.

Dr. Mele’s wide range of clinical expertise includes: the assessment and treatment of co-occuring mental health and substance abuse disorders in adolescents and adults, the use of telehealth to manage chronic medical conditions, and the development of non-pharmacologic interventions for individuals with cognitive impairment. Dr. Mele is a frequent speaker and trainer in these areas.

Dr. Mele’s extensive executive leadership experience in managed behavioral and physical healthcare includes serving as the founding Chief Clinical Officer of a national behavioral health managed care organization and as the national director of Wellness and Preventive Health for a health insurance managed care organization. In these positions, Dr. Mele assumed responsibility for ensuring that the Utilization Management and the Quality Improvement programs successfully met the healthplan’s financial and quality goals.  Under Dr. Mele’s leadership, utilization management, contracting and network management, quality management initiatives and programs were successfully created and implemented.

As the Regional Director of Preventive Health and Director  of Disease Management for AmeriChoice, a United Health Group company, Dr. Mele  developed a special needs program and oversaw the creation of a comprehensive disease management program in asthma, congestive heart failure, diabetes, sickle cell, and HIV/AIDS.  In this capacity, Dr. Mele obtained increases in HEDIS performance scores while achieving financial goals and earning state-based performance incentives.

Dr. Mele served as Chief Clinical Consultant to the AmeriChoice Management Services Organization and created the preventive health, utilization management, case management, and telehealth programs for this company.

A multi grant recipient in the area of telehealth, Dr. Mele established the AmeriChoice telehealth program in Pennsylvania and led its nationwide expansion for the nation’s largest managed healthcare company. Dr. Mele created clincial pathways and quality metrics that integrated telehealth into disease management programs and obtained physician reimbursement for telehealth services.  

Dr. Mele established a behavioral health company that grew into a  network of outpatient geriatric behavioral health services and served as the company’s founding executive director. As the executive director, Dr. Mele established financial, clinical, and quality goals and systems consistent with federal, state, and local regulatory standards and third-party payor requirement. From its inception in 2010, this  company now provides behavioral health services across the lifespan in over 40 locations.

As Chief Clinical Officer for Sovereign Health, Dr. Mele oversees the development and delivery of state of the art behavioral health treatment serving hundreds of patients in a nationwide network of facilities.

Shawn Shea, MD, Director, Training Institute for Suicide Assessment and Clinical Interviewing, Keene, New Hampshire

Shawn C. Shea, MD, is an internationally acclaimed workshop leader and educational innovator in the fields of suicide prevention, resiliency, and clinical interviewing, having given over 850 presentations worldwide.

Dr. Shea is the author of six books and numerous articles including one of the classic texts in the field of suicide prevention, The Practical Art of Suicide Assessment. Both editions of his book, Psychiatric Interviewing: the Art of Understanding, have been chosen by the Medical Library Association for the Brandon/Hill List as one of the sixteen most important books in the field of psychiatry.

Dr. Shea’s book on creating resiliency in difficult times, Happiness Is., was chosen as a Brodart Library Gem, a Bowker’s Title to Watch, and as the Philosophy Book of the Month by the Radical Academy.

Dr. Shea is the Executive Director of the Training Institute for Suicide Assessment and Clinical Interviewing, Inc., a training and consultation service providing workshops, consultations, and quality assurance design in mental health assessments. Dr. Shea is also in private practice.

Providence Health and Services will be hosting Shawn Shea, MD for a two day training on Reaching People Beneath the Diagnosis and Unlocking Suicidal Secrets. This training will be held at their Portland location and will include lunch. Visit each date for training information and registration for that day. If you would like to attend both days and receive a registration discount, click on the Training Event which lists both days.

EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION ENDS FEBRUARY 15TH

Goal of Training
Dr. Shea begins the day by tracking down the answers to two elusive and controversial questions: What is the nature of happiness? and What is the nature of human nature itself? He then demonstrates, with specific clinical examples, how the answers to these philosophical questions can be powerfully applied – a model called “matrix treatment planning” – to reach the people beneath the diagnoses, providing practical strategies and techniques for transforming stalled healing and creating resiliency. Matrix treatment planning also provides a surprisingly refreshing antidote to clinician “burn-out” as both client and clinician undertake their respective quests for happiness.

In the second workshop, Dr. Shea shifts the focus to specific interviewing methods for uncovering problematic personality dysfunction in a sensitive fashion. In an effort to better understand the unique qualities of the people beneath the Axis II diagnoses, he brings new life to psycho-dynamic concepts such as “object relations” and the “psychology of the self” while integrating them with cognitive and behavioral approaches. The result is an easily understood and clarifying set of specific interviewing techniques for engaging difficult clients, uncovering serious personality pathology, and determining the number of treatment sessions.

In the afternoon, Dr. Shea turns the focus onto one of the most problematic of all clinical gremlins – inaccurate or missed diagnoses. Taking the workshop participants on a sophisticated journey into an exploration of the people beneath the anxiety diagnoses – using a series of vivid videos of actual clinical interviews – he provides a refreshing understanding of how people individually experience and make sense of their anxiety symptoms. From this phenomenological understanding, Dr. Shea demonstrates numerous interviewing techniques that help uncover the complexities of often misunderstood diagnoses such as OCD, PTSD, and panic disorder including their atypical presentations.

In the last workshop Dr. Shea looks at the puzzling world of psychosis. He demonstrates a variety of specific interviewing techniques to help clinicians ferret out the earliest signs of impending psychosis or relapse, while providing a better understanding of the exquisite pain created by psychotic process. In addition he provides immediately practical interviewing techniques for spotting dangerous psychotic process including suicide, homicide, and self-mutilation. Once again Dr. Shea illustrates his interviewing techniques with compelling videos of actual clients experiencing psychotic process.

Behavioral Objectives

  • Be able to apply the principles of “matrix treatment planning” (including healing matrix effects, damaging matrix effects and the “Red Herring Principle”) to transform stalled treatment interventions.
  • Be able to utilize the theories of object relations (Kernberg) and the psychology of the self (Kohut) to apply specific interviewing techniques – such as the complementary shift – to engage difficult clients while quickly spotting serious psychopathology such as borderline, narcissistic, and antisocial process.
  • Be able to use specific interviewing techniques for rapidly uncovering OCD, PTSD, and panic disorder (including atypical presentations) using the DSM-IV-TR while sensitively understanding the nuances of each of these disorders for each unique client (including the concept of primary, secondary, and tertiary symptoms).
  • Be able to utilize interviewing techniques for spotting delusional mood, delusional perception, the life-cycle of a psychosis, and dangerous psychotic processes including command hallucinations, alien control, and hyperreligiosity.

Assessing the client’s relapse dynamic and identifying effective interventions will be explored. A 10-Point Cravings Management will be reviewed that will assist the therapeutic relationship in identify cravings, urges and consequences. The utilization of Psychopharmacology for Addiction Recovery will be reviewed including medications to specifically address cravings.

This training will review the neurobiology of addiction both generally and as it relates to specific substances of abuse. In the context of this material the pros and cons of medication assisted treatment (MAT) and the role of MAT in modern, evidence based treatment of addictive illnesses will be discussed. Trends in addictive illnesses across the country will be reviewed and MAT will be presented in light of these trends. The evolving understanding of addiction as an illness will be explained and we will discuss how this knowledge influences the approach to treating patients who suffer from these illnesses.

This training is considered both a core and intermediate educational level. It is appropriate for new professionals and those professionals who could benefit from further, more detailed information on the subject matter.

Behavioral Objectives
Training participants will be able to

  • Identify brain pathways involved in addictive illness,
  • Cite at least two specific neurobiological effects of each substance of abuse discussed,
  • Define Medication Assisted Treatment,

Hi Everyone!

I use language that makes young people giggle – however Marijuana use is not a laughing matter especially when it comes to our youth!  As Jim Gossett would say – the usual trend for a young person is that they would finish high school go to college, marry and have a family.  *Today our kids five states—Alaska, Georgia, Nevada, New Mexico, and Oregon—are at or below 70 percent. Jim reports Oregon is one of the highest in dropout rates and ranks the lowest in provided alcohol and drug treatment – that is so sad.

My curiosity is completely peaked regarding tomorrows training! With all of the dialogue around Marijuana – CBD vs THC, Eric Martin’s take on Anandamide, and how adult marijuana users have moved from smoking some weed and becoming one with a couch to young people smoking some Alaskan Thunder F…. and playing a better basketball game – which is what today’s youth report!

I am so looking forward to hearing the Local, National and International Trends in Drug Availability, Use and Trafficking in regards to Marijuana and other drugs.

Be curious with me and please consider adding a totally new piece of this pie – or should I say brownie! I look forward to seeing you there!!!

My Grace Filled Life After Addiction!

Goal of Training
The purpose of this training is to increase treatment providers’ awareness of how generational dysfunction and family specific dysfunction contributes to the progression of addiction and/or mental health disorders. Participants will be introduced to Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD), the Parent Child Assistance Program, The University of Washington FASD Diagnostic Team, and The Division of Children and Family Services. FASD through the lifespan, family system, and multigenerational will be discussed so that participants will be able to recognize FASD symptoms. The diagnostic process and screening tools utilized by the University of Washington will be reviewed. The Parent Child Assistance Program will be described and treatment approaches discussed. Participants will receive information on the utilization and involvement of Child Protective Services as a collaborator to achieving healthy family units. This training will assist participants with learning what specialized treatment options exist for families and how to refer patients to those services.
Additionally, participants will be able to hear a first hand account of a patient’s journey through addiction and family dysfunction as she tells how the services of the Parent Child Assistance Program, The University of Washington FASD Diagnostic Team and family treatment helped her break the cycles of dysfunction in her life.

Behavioral Objectives
Participants will be able to:

  • identify the common issues that perpetuate family dysfunction,
  • name three ways in which prenatal alcohol exposure contributes to increased risk for lifelong problems,
  • describe fetal alcohol spectrum disorder symptoms,
  • provide basic screening for FASD and know sources for referrals,
  • describe the Parent Child Assistance Program, and
  • identify the role of DCFS/CPS and how to coordinate services.

Goal of Training
The aim of this training is to familiarize participants with the relationship between brain
structure, and function, as it relates to many of the complex cognitive behaviors
influenced by drugs. Specific drugs (including alcohol, heroin, cocaine,
methamphetamine, and cannabinoids, the “psychoactive” chemicals found in
marijuana) act directly on specific molecular targets, located on neurons, and alter their
structure, and thus how they operate. Such limited “drug actions” will temporarily
change the activity of neurons, in certain “networked” areas of the brain that underlie
social decision making, selective attention, memory, feeling, and other complex human
behaviors. Chronic drug exposure will change network connections more permanently,
in ways that lead to tolerance, craving, abuse, dependence, withdrawal, and relapse…

In this training we will explore where drugs act, how they change neural activity, how
chronic drug exposure leads to persistent structural changes in the brain, and the
functional significance of specific networks that generate memory, appropriate social
decision making, inhibition of inappropriate behavior, and other psychological abilities
affected by drugs. We will also discuss what an explicit knowledge of structure-function
relationships suggests about treatment options, including pharmacotherapy and
behavior-based interventions, including cognitive-behavioral therapy.

I love teaching, and explaining how networks of linked neurons carry out complex cognitive behavior. I've served as an adjunct faculty member at WSU-Vancouver since 2001..!

“I love teaching, and explaining how networks of linked neurons carry out complex cognitive behavior. I’ve served as an adjunct faculty member at WSU-Vancouver since 2001..!”

In addition to teaching, he routinely brings brains (rat, monkey, human) to K-8 classrooms at area public schools to teach about the brain and behavior.  I wonder if he will bring a brain with him!!!  Here is his Curriculum Vitae!
• Adjunct Instructor, Psychology, Washington State University – Vancouver since 2001,
• Instructor, Psychology, Portland State University,
• Adjunct Instructor, Speech & Hearing Sciences, Portland State University,
• Adjunct Instructor, Neuroscience, Washington State University – Vancouver,
• Affiliate Graduate Faculty, Behavioral Neuroscience, Oregon Health & Science University, and
• Science Coordinator, NW Noggin Science Education Outreach.

Behavioral Objectives
Participants will be provided with the information necessary for

  • Explaining how neurons carry information,
  • Explaining how neurons communicate with each other across synapses, and why the synapse represents a target-rich environment for drug actions,
  • Describing four types of protein targets where drugs might act to change structure and function
  • Providing examples of distributed networks in the brain, and the cognitive behaviors they carry out, and why specific drug action in these networks might affect those behaviors (e.g., why does alcohol’s specific action in frontal lobe impair social decision making?), and
  • Explaining why pharmacotherapy, cognitive behavior therapy, or a combination of drugs/CBT might help decrease the risk of relapse in some individuals.

Health Education Center off Mill Plain & 92nd Ave.
600 N.E. 92nd Ave., Vancouver, WA 98664

Goal of Training
Research conducted by Douglas Braun-Harvey of the Harvey Institute has indicated that integrating sexual health curriculum into residential treatment can improve client retention and reduce relapse rates. Additionally research emerging from Hazelden’s Butler Center for Research is shedding new light on some unique needs of the LGBTQ population seeking treatment. Join two of Hazelden’s clinician for an exploration of the newest research merging the fields of chemical dependency, mental health, and sexuality. Perspectives from both inpatient and outpatient work will be discussed. This workshop will be interactive, helping move those who feel uncomfortable with the topic to a place where they can be more effective when working with clients who need support with sexual health issues.

This workshop will share both established and new research on how sex-positive approaches can be used to improve treatment outcomes for clients with chemical use disorders. Facilitators will share a model for conceptualizing sexual health. The history of sex-positivity and sex-negativity within the clinical field will be explored. Participants will interact on a group level to identify clinical strengths and opportunities within their own skill set for working with clients on issues that intersect with sexual health and addictions treatment.

Behavioral Objectives
Participants will be able

  • to define the concepts of sex-positivity and sex-negativity,

  • to describe why addressing sexual health can improve client retention,

  • to practice 3 methods for discussing sexual health with clients, and

  • to outline the basic practices for working with ethical dilemmas when addressing client’s sexual health.

Mindful Smoking

Presented by: Grace On You, L.L.C.

Hands Across the Bridge started twelve years ago when two women in recovery read an article about National Recovery Month and realized people all over the United States were celebrating their recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. They decided they would stand on top of the bridge at daybreak to celebrate that they were no longer under the bridge in their addictions. Patty Katz and Louise Wedge, along with the support of the community, held the first Hands Across the Bridge celebration on the I-5 Bridge in 2002.That first year saw about 200 people. Over the next eleven  years, the event grew with  more than 2500 people joining hands in 2012.

The tradition has been after the completion of the Hands Across the Bridge ceremony, the participants travel to Ester Shore park to the Oxfest celebration. Oxfest is an all day event filled with family fun, including multiple bands, food vendors and family activities. Oxfest, sponsored by the men and women living in the more than 500 hundred Oxford Houses, both Oregon and Washington.

This year Hands Across the Bridge and Oxfest has received a very generous donation from Access to Recovery (ATR). Additionally, other ATR recipients; Phoenix Rising Transition, Iron Tribe, Bridges to Change and Highland Access to Recovery and Reentry Programs are helping to organize and coordinate this event.

Goal of Training
One of the most positive, cost-effective influences any healthcare professional can have is to help a patient quit smoking. Nicotine is strongly addictive. Tobacco is the leading preventable cause of death in the United States, contributing to greater mortality than alcohol, illicit drugs, HIV, suicide, homicide, motor vehicle accidents, and obesity, all combined (Centers for Disease Control, 2005).

“Tobacco is a big blind spot for many in our field. We are used to working with clients with what sound like more severe problems…but sometimes we forget that tobacco kills more of our clients than all those other ‘serious’ drugs put together.” – Erik Stone, Director of Compliance and Quality Improvement, Signal Behavioral Health Network

Many accreditation agencies for treatment facilities are beginning to see the importance in integrating tobacco cessation into treatment. The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) requires smoking policies, and both the Association for Addiction Professionals (NAADAC) and the American Society for Addiction Medicine support the treatment of tobacco dependence. Beginning January 2014, all CADCs applying for re-certification must have a minimum of two hours of continuing education in tobacco dependence/prevention.

This course will assist counselors in starting the process of integrating tobacco addiction education and treatment into their practice. Many healthcare providers are beginning to address tobacco dependence in their programs due to the devastating toll tobacco use has on people with substance abuse and mental health disorders. Attendees will gain information, skills and resources to support this important work.

This is an Intermediate Training. It is most appropriate for participants who are familiar with the basic concepts of addiction and recovery yet are seeking more detailed specific information on the topic.

Behavioral Objectives
Attendees will understand:

  • The impact of tobacco use on clients with behavioral health disorders
  • The Science of Nicotine Addiction
  • How to implement two curricula on tobacco education
  • How to access the Tobacco Quit Line and what it offers
  • How to recommend the various nicotine dependence medications and instruct on their proper use

Trainer
Deb Drandoff, M. Ed., is an administrator at ChangePoint, Inc, and also manages the Washington State Healthy Communities Resource Center, which provides trainings for all programs in the Washington State Department of Health Community Wellness Program. Deb is currently providing consultation with numerous agencies in Oregon and Washington on integrating tobacco treatment, and created a model to provide training and technical assistance to chemical dependency treatment programs as they integrate tobacco education and cessation. Deb has previous experience as an administrator of chemical dependency, mental health and juvenile justice agencies.

  • Please note: This training is at the Health Education Center at the Mill Plain Campus off 92nd Ave. Participants are on their own for lunch.

Goal of Training
NAADAC has identified that addressing spirituality in the recovery and counseling process is a component of a counselor’s cultural competency. Spirituality is a vital aspect of culture, and failure to acknowledge, understand, and embrace spirituality may be culturally nonresponsive to client needs. This training aims to increase treatment providers understanding and competency as related to spirituality. Assessment components, ethical considerations, and community collaborations will be explored.

Behavioral Objectives
This training will provide participants with the ability to:

  • Define the difference between spirituality and religion,
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the importance of exploring spiritual issues in the treatment of addiction,
  • Identify the ethical issues that arise from addressing spirituality in counseling,
  • Utilize four assessment tools for exploring spirituality with clients
  • Describe the basic foundations of AA/12-step models, and
