Description

*Counselors requiring New York State approval must contact ACA upon completion to obtain customized CE certificate.

After outlining the details of the current opioid crisis in rural America, the presenters will offer an ecological model of case conceptualization to promote a better understanding of the complex, multisystemic factors that have led to and sustain this epidemic. A description of pivotal systemic issues and analysis of their relative centrality in the life and recovery of a case study client will provide participants with a complex and comprehensive foundation for treatment planning and advocacy.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be become familiar or refamiliarized with Bronfenbrenner’s ecological model of human development (e.g., 1979, 1994), including the micro-, meso-, exo-, macro-, and chronosystems. Participants will also be introduced to the work of Ungar and colleagues (2017), who have expanded upon this model.
  • Participants will be able to identify multiple ecological influences contributing to the current opioid crisis in rural America
  • Participants will apply the knowledge from objectives #1 and #2 by utilizing eco-webbing (William et al., 2015) to create an ecologically-informed case conceptualization and treatment plan for a client from an original case study. Discussion will include suggestions for the use of these strategies with students, supervisees, and clients.
