Course Outline

Do you work with people who experience both mental health and substance misuse problems? Two days of learning and reflection enable you to explore dual diagnosis as a treatment issue, discuss clinical guidance, find out more about methods to assess need and develop your skills in working with this client group.    


  • To provide non-statutory workers with a clear framework for assessing and treating people with dual diagnosis


By the end of the course participants will have had opportunities to:

  • identify sub-populations of dual diagnosis clients
  • describe the interactions between mental illness and substance misuse
  • Practice evidence based approaches to effective treatment of dual diagnosis clients
  • explain the Department of Health recommended guidelines for dual diagnosis treatment (Osher & Kofoed 1989)
