Dual Diagnosis Skills Enhancement Workshops
Thursday March 30, 2023
The Recovery College will be delivering a further two one day workshops in May which will be co-facilitated by members of the community who have lived and/or professional experience with dual diagnosis.
This one day workshop will build on the Dual Diagnosis Awareness workshops rolled out in the NEIC community in 2019. It is a step above ‘awareness’ and will look to enhance the skills of people with, family members of, and organisations working with people who may have substance use and mental health difficulties along with other complex needs. The workshop will be trauma informed, acknowledging the place of individual and community trauma as an important factor in people developing substance use and mental health issues. In the interactive workshop we will work with participants present understanding of Dual Diagnosis and existing interpersonal, relationship, clinical and community engagement skills. We will use real case studies and community scenarios to enhance how people can and already do work with people who have both mental health and substance use difficulties. The plan is that participants will feel more confident to respond to dual diagnosis at an individual level and through interagency networking.
The workshop will be broken up into two half day sessions one week apart, hopefully this will make it easier for some people with work or childcare commitments.
Workshop 1 will be held on 22nd and 29th May at St Laurence O’Toole Recreation Centre, Sheriff Street Lower, Dublin, D01 PD89
Workshop 2 will be held on 23rd/30th May at Killarney Court Community Centre, Buckingham St, Dublin 1
Both Sessions will start at 10am and finish at 1pm
