Addiction & Mental Health (Dual Diagnosis) Integrative 12hrs
Hi, thank you for your interest in our Self Paced 12 hour S.A.M.H.I. Advanced Dual Diagnosis Training (Substance Abuse & Mental Health Interventions), which is the next level after our 2 hour S.A.M.H.I. Chemically Speaking Two (Brief Intervention) training program.
This training is also tax deductible as a work related expense and enables people to maintain professional development and upskilling.
If people want a certificate of attendance and also qualify for 12 points of CPD (Continuing Professional Development) for their professional peak body (APS, ACA, AASW, CPA, PACFA, ACWA etc), they need to complete the full intensive training.
This advanced training covers all of the current evidence based, best practice in the Alcohol & Other Drugs (AOD) and Mental Health from an integrated, holistic framework.
In June 2018, S.A.M.H.I. launched its 6 module, 12 hour course on Dual Diagnosis Training (www.samhi.online). This training will equip workers to be able to deliver brief & early interventions to people struggling with substance abuse and mental health issues, as well as advanced psychotherapeutic skills. This is the same as the comprehensive 2 day advanced training that is being delivered live across Australia and explained on our Dual Diagnosis Training Australian website;
The reason why S.A.M.H.I Dual Diagnosis Training has gone online is to expand the coverage of the highly acclaimed, comprehensive 2 day advanced Dual Diagnosis Training designed and presented by George Patriki. George and many of his staff will be still conducting live training under the banner of Dual Diagnosis Training in conjunction with the online adapted S.A.M.H.I course. We have very specifically and deliberately made this course very affordable at $145AU. This is half price. Join with us to address the alarming substance abuse and the co-morbid mental health issues that are rising in our communities across Australia and overseas.
