About the Course:
Workforce development is essential to the field of substance use disorder treatment. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has included workforce development in its Matrix of Priority Programs. A major focus of this workforce development strategy is improving the competencies of professionals in the field. This updated edition of Technical Assistance Publication (TAP) 21: Addiction Counseling Competencies: The Knowledge, Skills, and Attitudes of Professional Practice (The Competencies) is a key component of that strategy. Note; this course is from pages 35-160.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Addiction Counseling Competencies, Practice Dimensions: The Knowledge, Skills, and Attitudes of Professional Practice created by SAMHSA
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
