COAL seminar on the intersection of Trauma & Addiction

April 14, 2021 - 9:00am to 10:00am

COAL seminar on the intersection of Trauma & Addiction

Individuals with substance use disorders are more likely to have a history of trauma than those without substance misuse. Trauma is a significant contributor to addiction and often impacts the course of treatment. Supporting clients in recovery requires clinicians to identify and treat underlying trauma and trauma symptoms.

The seminar will provide:

  • A background on trauma and description of trauma symptoms using client cases.
  • Identify reasons to treat trauma and addiction simultaneously.
  • Clinical strategies to engage and treat clients with trauma and addiction

Presented by speaker Toya Jones:

Professor Toya Jones, LCSW is the BASW Program Director at the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Social Work. She is an expert on the impact of trauma on behavioral health and working with clients using trauma-informed treatment. She has experience and training in counselor-legal advocacy, crisis management, conflict resolution and mediation, working with both victims of juvenile crime and the adult criminal justice system.
