Behavioral Consultation with Consumers with Dual Diagnosis and Their Support Systems
Michael C. Wolff, PhD, CAC; Kristin Read, BA, The Psychological Clinic, Penn State University, University Park, PA
Given the science supporting specific behavioral and psychological services for individuals with dual diagnoses, how do we individually tailor behavioral support services for consumers and their respective support systems? Given that consultative services do not occur in a vacuum, how do we maintain evidenced-based practice within complex naturalistic settings? We will discuss our assessment procedures, case conceptualization process, intervention model, and training approaches, as well as research initiatives.
