Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant and develop a program that will help increase a practitioner's knowledge regarding co-occurring disorders (COD) for Plaza Community Services. The program will educate program participants about how COD affects an individual and familial dynamics. The literature reveals that practitioners need better training regarding COD and that communication between practitioners is essential so that clients can obtain the best result. The literature also reveals that parent-child interaction is a factor in determining if the child will develop mental illness. The goals of the Knowledge Dissemination Program are to enhance the knowledge of professionals and community members by educating them and to lessen the stigma regarding COD through various conferences. The Knowledge Dissemination Program will teach practitioners evidence-based practice techniques, including parenting techniques, to better assist clients with COD. The funding source for the proposed program is Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. The expected result of this program is for professionals to apply the information learned so that they can better assist their clients and families. Therefore, clients and their families will have a better outcome in life.
