Murdoch University - Train the Trainer: Family-based intervention for youth alcohol and other drug use and co-occurring mental health issues in Western Australia  

Presenter - Professor Andrew Lewis, Director of Clinical Psychology at Murdoch University and accredited BEST trainer
Thursday 5 - Friday 6 March 2020
Murdoch University South Street campus

Murdoch University is offering free Behaviour Exchange and Systems Therapy (BEST) facilitator training for clinicians across Western Australia.

BEST is an evidence-based, 8-week, multi-family group program for parents and their young persons (12-24yo) with substance use and/or mental health issues. Previously implemented and evaluated in Victoria, BEST was effective in engaging at-risk youth who initially refused services, reducing their substance use, problem behaviours and mental health symptoms, as well as improving family functioning.

Trained facilitators will gain accreditation through a two-day workshop and supervision in implementing the program in your service.

Please register your interest in the free BEST Information Session and morning tea on Tuesday 4 February 2020, 9.30-11.30am, at Murdoch University South Street Campus.
