Education and Presentations
TNCODC provides education and awareness on the impact of co-occurring disorders on individuals, families, and communities.
TNCODC’s primary outreach has been providing education and training through face-to-face presentations at statewide trade, professional, and advocacy group conferences with a few regional and local community presentations interspersed along the way.
The TNCODC Steering Committee is launching a local level community outreach effort to extend education and awareness of the impact of co-occurring disorders.
If you are interested in complementing your community behavioral health outreach efforts by adding a presentation on the impact of co-occurring disorders, TNCODC has brief, intermediate, and advanced presentations that may be of interest to your organization.
- INTERMEDIATE – The TNCODC intermediate presentation builds on the brief presentation with a slightly more in-depth look at the brain science related to co-occurring disorders. It is designed to be more pertinent to bringing awareness and strengthening the knowledge of families and individuals with lived experience as well as professional level staff as it is more treatment specific. It typically requires a 2-3 hour block of training time – strongly encourage a 3 hour block to include Q&A with participants.
- BRIEF -- The TNCODC brief presentation is designed as a general purpose medium for bringing about an awareness and expression of the impact of co-occurring disorders. It is general in nature and designed from a community-based lay perspective. It is typically used for brief 1 hour presentation times -- strongly encourage 1 1/2 hour time block to include Q&A as this presentation typically generates lots of audience inquiries.
- ADVANCED – The TNCODC advanced presentation takes the general knowledge of the brief presentation and the brain science of the intermediate presentation and steps it up to go more in-depth on the brain science of co-occurring disorders. It is designed to train clinicians, professionals, treatment staff, clinical case managers, and upper level management staff of service provider agencies and private practitioners. It typically requires a 4-6 hour block of training time – strongly encourage a 6 hour block to include Q&A with participants.
