|Join us at
the Twentieth Annual Governor's Conference on Substance
Abuse as we prepare for the next millenium.
"Developing Skills for the Future" promises to
be an exciting and informative conference.
The present environment of managed care and the complex issues surrounding the client of the nineties compels us to look more closely at what is effective treatment in the field of substance abuse. Mark Hubble, Ph.D. has done extensive work in solution focused brief therapy. His experience as a psychologist, national trainer, and consultant has placed him in a position to give an interesting and provocative presentation on the clinical skills that will be needed for the future. "Escape from Babel - Honing Clinical Skills for the Next Millenium" promises to be a critical look at treatment in the future.
The prevention field in substance abuse continues to change. Diminishing funding sources, new models of community planning, new partners and collaboration - all contribute to the rapid rate of change. Barbara Jacobi is a skilled and efficient senior manager for Jacobi Associates. Her experience in strategic planning and organizational development, as well as her knowledge of service delivery systems in the field of substance abuse prevention, provides a great backdrop for her presentation on "Preparing for the Future of Prevention."
All participants will be invited to choose two breakout sessions to attend. The topics have been selected with the help of the Advisory Group for the Training Project. The target audience of treatment counselors, nurses, prevention specialists, SAFE community coordinators, public health workers, social workers, and all other helping professionals will find energetic and informative presentations.
General Barry McCaffrey was confirmed by unanimous vote of the U.S. Senate as the Director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) on February 29, 1996. He serves as a full member of the President's Cabinet and as the senior drug policy official in the Executive Branch.
General McCaffrey has graciously accepted an invitation by Governor Branstad to address the Governor's Conference on Substance Abuse if his schedule allows.
