Register

LOCATION
James Branch Cabell Library
901 Park Avenue
Richmond, VA 23284

COST
10-$75, depending on whether you want CEUs or you are a student. This includes parking and lunch both days! And the $75 free includes CEUS and the pre conference motivational interviewing taught on Tuesday, April 16. You can take this one day or combine it with the rest of the conference.

College Behavioral and Emotional Health Institute (COBE) at Virginia Commonwealth University hosts it’s third annual town hall meeting. This ticket is the best deal in conferences this side of the east coast. Some of the brightest and best researchers in mental health and substance use disorder speak. Innovative strategies and ideas are prevalent and it’s a must attend event. I’ve been every year and am never disappointed.

April 18th’s Speakers will be focused on Basic Research, Wellness and Prevention. April 19th’s Speakers will be focused on treatment and recovery.

What I wanted to point out was the motivational interviewing training taught by Jason Kilmer, Associate Professor in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Washington and Shannon Bailie, MSW, Director of Health & Wellness at the University of Washington.

The reason I point this out specifically is the number of times I get asked, “What do I do for my child that suffers from substance use disorder?” This intervention helps people become motivated to change the behaviors that are preventing them from making healthier choices. Research has shown that this intervention works well with individuals who start off unmotivated or unprepared for change. It is less useful for those who are already motivated to change. Motivational interviewing is also appropriate for people who are angry or hostile.

Anyone can learn this methodology and it is being taught by the top experts on how to use it.

I hope to see you at this year’s COBE event!

I am an emotionally naked TEDx speaker, and author of the Book, Diary of a Broken Mind and co-author with Kim O'Brien PhD, LICSW of Emotionally Naked: A Teacher's Guide to Preventing Suicide and Recognizing Students at Risk. I raised two boys, Richard and Charles, and lost my younger son, Charles to substance use disorder and suicide on June 5, 2015. I help people foster a culture of connection to prevent suicide, reduce substance misuse and find life after loss. My motivational, training and workshop topics include suicide prevention, addiction, mental illness, coping strategies/resilience, and grief. As talented and funny as Charles was, letting other people know they matter was his greatest gift. And now the legacy I try and carry forward in my son's memory. Professional Speaker Website. Trained in ASIST and trainer for the evidence-based 4-hour training for everyone called safeTALK.
