Online Course Evaluation – How it works:
We are trying a new process for course evaluations using our online course system. We hope this will ultimately provide a smoother experience for you by allowing you to access your certificate immediately after completing the course evaluation. Here is how it works:
After the live meeting ends, you will receive an email with an evaluation access code.
- Log into this online course
- Under Course Content, click “Step 1: Access Evaluation” and follow the instructions to enter the code.
- After you enter the code, you will be able to continue to the next step of the course and complete the evaluation.
- After you submit the evaluation, click Mark Complete and you will be able to download or print your certificate. The certificate will also be emailed to you as a PDF.
The Invitation to Change Approach is a practical, compassionate and skills-oriented program developed for people wanting to help loved ones struggling with substance use. It blends evidence-based principles and practices from Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Instead of the traditional message to families of “detachment”, this approach emphasizes the idea that people can take care of themselves while simultaneously staying engaged and practicing active strategies to help their struggling loved one. Professionals attending will gain a thorough understanding of the behavioral motivations behind substance use, how to employ motivational strategies that improve communication and promote change, and learn to share this information with the family members and loved ones of people who use substances. Training is accomplished through didactic learning and experiential exercises.
