The purpose of this instruction and training in alcoholism and other chemical substance dependency is to fulfill what is required by Sections 4980.41, 4980.80, 4980.90, 4996.2, 4996.17, and 4999.32 of the Barclays Official California Code of Regulations for Continuing Education Requirements for Marriage and Family Therapists, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Licensed Educational Psychologists, and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors. How do we learn to recognize the medical aspects of alcoholism and substance abuse and support people who may be unaware of the ramifications that alcoholism and substance abuse is having on their lives? What are the legal aspects? What are the major treatment approaches to alcoholism and substance abuse? How do we determine which community resources are available and more importantly, when and who to refer our clients to for greater supports with alcoholism and substance use? This training serves to answer these questions and to provide knowledge of at-risk populations, learn and practice techniques to support behavior change with clients caught up in alcoholism and substance use, and learn prevention education techniques to support our clients and their families.
