The 2011 IAODAPCA Fall Conference:

(By Dianne Gutierraz, ICB Operations Staff)

The 2011 IAODAPCA Fall Conference took place at the Rend Lake Conference Center and Resort in Whittington, IL October 31st- November 4th.  Success- Check!  The entire week was not only a learning experience but a time to reflect and connect with our professional peers.  Throughout the week a wide variety of topics were presented.   A focus on Process Addiction and Gambling Addiction lead the way along with workshops that focused on other diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Dementia.   Workshops even focused on specialized treatment approaches such as Medicated Assisted Recovery and the Strength Based Approach.  No only did presenters inform the Counselors how to take care of their clients but they also informed us how to take care of ourselves.  It’s so important for healthcare professionals for themselves to be healthy and knowledgeable; we offer just that at our Fall Conference.

Thank you to all who attended, your professionalism and dedication is something to be desired. We also thank you for your feedback; it is a vital resource when it comes to choosing presenters and topics.  You speak and we listen! We have become a family and we can’t wait to see you again next year.

We couldn’t achieve excellence with out our volunteers!  Your hard work certainly helps with the smooth flow of events throughout the week.  Thank you, thank you and by the way Thank you!

Though attendance was high, our exhibits were low; we were still able to count on Community Education Services and DASA as always and were happy to include the Indiana Re-Entry Program, who joined us for the first time.  Thank you so much, you are the key when it comes to planning such an essential event.

To those who presented, I applaud you.  What you bring to the field is vital.  Your knowledge and dedication is valued in every way. Take pride in what you do and know that you make a difference. It is a privilege to have you associated with our event and we appreciate your efforts and commitment.

So now that you have the picture painted for you, why aren’t you attending?  Don’t have the funds?  IAODAPCA has scholarships available!  Can’t be out of the office for a week?  Then join us for the day!  No more excuses, make it your goal to attend, I am confident when I say you won’t be disappointed.

Want to join us in the spring for our Annual Conference, then mark your calendars for March 26-30, 2012.  The IAODAPCA Spring Conference will be held at the WESTIN Chicago Northwest Hotel in Itasca, IL.

Hope to see you then!

IAODAPCA Appoints Its Most Recent Board Member 

Brian Lengfelder, New IAODAPCA Board Member

Brian Lengfelder, LCPC, CAADC, MISAI, CCJP, MAC, ICCS, ACRPS

The IAODAPCA Board of Directors unanimously voted to add Mr. Brian Lengfelder to the board on September 29, 2011. Brian has devoted his time and knowledge to numerous IAODAPCA events.  Brian volunteered as a peer review specialist and was a trained CPM Evaluator for several years. In addition, Brian continues as a well known speaker and volunteer at the IAODAPCA Spring and Fall Conferences.  It is because of Brian’s professional perseverance, knowledge in the field and impeccable reputation that he serves as the region 2 representative on the IAODAPCA Board of Directors.

Get To Know Brain . . . .

ICB Takes Legal Action

ILLINOIS ALCOHOL AND OTHER DRUG ABUSE PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATION ASSOCIATION, INC. has taken action to terminate the improper and unauthorized use of the CADC designation by Kimberly Even.  Ms. Even, operating at times as the North Shore Adolescent Recovery Center out of a Northfield, Illinois address, has been ordered by Sangamon County Circuit Judge Leo Zappa to cease and desist from the use of the CADC designation.  The State of Illinois has since terminated the license of Ms. Even’s agency as well.

“The Association takes very seriously its role in the issuance of certifications such as the CADC certification”, said Jessica Hayes, the Executive Director of the Association.  “Patients, prospective patients, the courts and the public rely on the professionals who have successfully completed the certification process.  The use of the CADC designation by those who have not completed the certification process misleads the patients, the schools, the courts and others who rely on that certification as a signal of professional standing.  We will continue to monitor the use of our marks, such as CADC, and will continue to take actions to protect the public and our profession.”

Ms. Even had failed to complete the CADC certification process, and according to the documents filed by the Association with the Court, Even had at one time agreed to cease the use of the CADC mark.  She failed to abide by that agreement, and the Association filed suit in Sangamon County.  Judge Zappa entered a Temporary Restraining Order, instructing Even to immediately cease and desist any use of Plaintiff’s registered trademark ‘CADC’, and further ordered Even to immediately remove from any and all advertising or promotional materials, in any form (audio, video, paper, electronic or otherwise) any use of the mark ‘CADC’.

Ms. Even partially complied with that order, and removed the CADC designation from her advertising, and her listings on the NPI registry.  Even, who had also previously been disciplined by the state for the improper use of the LCSW designation, also suffered the termination of the license of her agency by the State.

As of October 11, 2011, Ms. Even apparently had not complied with the Order from Judge Zappa, and she continued to use the CADC, and the LCSW, designation.  Ms. Even was arrested in Cook County, Illinois, and charged with forgery, in relation to some checks issued to a patient of hers from BlueCross/Blue Shield.  Paperwork obtained by the arresting officers included billings to patients, billings which included representations that Even held both the CADC and LCSW designations.

Ms. Even has now been served with a Rule to Show Cause why she should not be held in contempt of court, and that matter is set for hearing on October 31, 2011.  At that hearing, IAODAPCA, at that hearing, will ask Judge Zappa to hold Ms. Even in contempt of court, and will also pursue the attorneys fees the Association has incurred in the litigation against Ms. Even.

 

IC&RC Elects New Leadership at 30th Anniversary Fall Meeting

04 November 2011 9:36 PM | Kay Glass (Administrator)

At the annual meeting of IC&RC, the Board of Directors, representing 78 certification boards from 25 countries and 45,000 reciprocal-level credentialed professionals, elected new leadership. Phyllis Gardner, Professor of Sociology at Texarkana College, was elected President, and Jessica Hayes, Executive Director of the Illinois Certification Board Inc. (ICB), is the new Treasurer. Both offices hold two-year terms.

Gardner expressed thanks, in her acceptance speech: “I’m grateful for the evolution of this organization, and the way this organization lets me evolve and grow. I appreciate the trust that you have shown, and I will endeavor to live up to that trust.” Gardner holds a doctoral degree in Sociology from Texas Woman’s University and is a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor, Certified Clinical Supervisor, and Certified Advanced Addictions Counselor. She has served the Texas Certification Board of Addiction Professionals in various capacities since 1990 and is a past president of the Texas Association of Addiction & Prevention Professionals. Her most recent role at IC&RC was Chair of the Credentialing Services Committee, which oversees the maintenance of all IC&RC examinations and credentials, as well as related products.

Hayes began her career in the field of addictions in 1997 as the financial manager for the ICB. She took on the role of Executive Director in 2009. She has been associated with IC&RC for fourteen years, most recently as Chair of the ADC Committee then Chair of the Business & Operations committee. She told the group, “I am certainly both humbled and excited about the election as Treasurer.”

The Board Administrators elected Debbie Gilbert as their Representative to the Executive Committee. Gilbert has been Executive Director of the Iowa Certification Board for almost a decade, and she has served as the Chair of IC&RC’s Marketing Committee for six years.

 

Who Will Be The New Trainers?
A project in Illinois seeks to carry forward the knowledge base.

by Mark Sanders, LCSW, CADC

Mark Sanders, LCSW, CADC

Using notes from lectures he heard by Walter Green, MD, while he was a client in alcoholism treatment, the late Father Joseph Martin went on the lecture circuit himself and revolutionized the field of addiction treatment. With these lectures, Father Martin reduced the stigma of addiction with speeches he gave on alcoholism, now recorded as his famous “Chalk Talk” series.

Father Martin used this platform to deliver the message that alcoholics are not bad people, but rather suffer from a disease that needs to be treated. His message resonated worldwide.

Over the course of the past quarter-century, other speakers/trainers have emerged to shape the field of addiction treatment and recovery, including but not limited to:

  • Jacqueline Small, author of Becoming Naturally Therapeutic. She reminded the field that while counseling techniques are important, the possession of naturally therapeutic qualities such as empathy, warmth, genuineness and a loving heart can go even further to help us keep clients engaged in treatment.2
  • Claudia Black, PhD, and Jerry Moe. Their lectures reminded us that while it is important to work with adults in chemical dependency treatment, we also need strategies to work with their children who suffer as a result of their parents’ addictions.
  • Peter Bell. His pioneering work focused on the cultural aspects of addiction treatment and recovery. His speeches highlighted the belief that addiction is best treated if the cultural context in which it develops is taken into consideration.3
  • Stephanie Covington, PhD. Her lectures and writings have strongly influenced how the field works with chemically dependent women.
  • Stephanie Brown, PhD, and John Bradshaw. Their presentations reminded us of the importance of focusing on the entire family.
  • Terence Gorski. In the late 1980s and 1990s, when pessimism surrounded the field because inpatient treatment facilities were closing throughout the nation, Gorski affected the way treatment was done through his presentations on counseling for relapse prevention.
  • Cardwell C. Nuckols, PhD, is currently educating the nation in summer institutes and other conferences on addiction as a brain disease and its clinical implications.
  • William White and Don Coyhis are providing a great deal of education on the importance of anchoring recovery in the client’s natural environment and of using indigenous healers along with trained professionals to facilitate recovery.

Goals include how to provide more effective client education, how to deliver better in-service trainings to co-workers, and how to pursue training as a career path in the addiction field.

The field of addiction treatment is currently facing numerous challenges and transitions, which highlight the need for informational, inspirational and visionary trainers to help guide these challenges. Some of these issues include a movement from doing business as usual to how to adopt evidence-based practices; the potential for nationwide cuts in funding for addiction treatment and how to address this challenge; the high incarceration rates for chemically dependent clients; the treatment of multi-problem clients who present with co-occurring conditions; and the uncertainty as to how the new healthcare initiatives nationally will affect addiction treatment and how the field can best prepare for them.

Many veteran trainers in the addictions field are in the fall or winter of their training careers. I have spoken with several who have told me they intend to retire soon. This raises an important question: Who will help identify, prepare and mentor the next generation of trainers in the field?

Goals include how to provide more effective client education, how to deliver better in-service trainings to co-workers, and how to pursue training as a career path in the addiction field.

Illinois project

A decade ago, six master trainers in Illinois came together to ponder how to prepare the next generation of trainers in the addiction field in the state. We decided to take action. We approached the state certification board for addiction counselors and asked if it would allow us to conduct an annual “Training of Trainers” at the annual state addictions conference for anyone interested in learning to be an effective trainer.

We received an enthusiastic yes and have offered this training for the past decade, alternating between a Fundamentals of Training and an advanced Training of Trainers two-day workshop. Some topics covered in the track for the Fundamentals of Training include:

  • How to select a training topic;
  • How to discover your passion as a trainer in the addiction field;
  • Delivery formats, including workshops, plenaries, keynote addresses, and how to assess your readiness to move from one format to another;
  • How to research your topic;
  • How to improve training delivery, including speech openings,
    closings, storytelling, and use of humor in trainings; and
  • Finding opportunities to practice.

Topics covered in the advanced Training of Trainers include:

  • Training as a career path in the addictions field;
  • How to go from free to fee;
  • Marketing;
  • How to build and maintain a part-time or full-time business as a trainer in the field;
  • The ethics of training;
  • Handling difficult situations as a trainer; and

Practice and feedback-participants are allowed to make brief presentations and receive feedback from

  • master trainers.

Many participants who complete the fundamentals of training go on to complete the advanced Training of Trainers.

Another feature of the Training of Trainers is providing mentorship and goal setting. Following the workshop the master trainers agree to mentor three to four participants over the course of a year. They help participants achieve the training goals that they set for themselves in the Training of Trainers.

Results

Feedback from participants in the Training of Trainers has identified numerous benefits, as about 400 counselors in Illinois have completed the process. Many of the participants are now regular presenters at our annual state conference.

This is significant in the current economic recession, as many states struggle to afford the cost of national trainers. This has proven to be an effective strategy to ensure quality in a cost-effective manner.

Also, several trainers have gone from providing local workshops to delivering national presentations. Several participants are now a part of the master Training of Trainers team. And several participants are now training as a paid career path.

Conclusion

Excellent trainers are needed now more than ever. They will:

  • Introduce the field to evidence-based practices;
  • Help the field understand how to implement these practices;
  • Provide clarity in their presentations on how to bridge the gap between research and clinical practice;
  • Introduce the field to new approaches;
  • Increase hope and motivation;
  • Challenge the field to think outside the box;
  • Remind addiction professionals of the importance of self-care;
  • Sound the alarm-using their platform to remind the field of mistakes made in our historical past so that we will not repeat them; and
  • Provide visionary leadership by helping the field prepare for the changes we will need to make as we face health reform.

In the beginning of my career as a drug counselor, I watched many of Father Martin’s videos with my clients. Watching him on film inspired me to want to be a trainer. I approached William White and asked if he would mentor me as an aspiring trainer. He agreed, and when I asked him what I owed him for this mentorship, he told me what his mentor Ernest Kurtz once told him: “You pay it back by passing on to others what you have learned.”

It is my hope that seasoned trainers in the addiction field will help continue the legacy of effective training by taking it upon themselves to help develop and mentor a new generation of trainers. In Illinois, we have found that providing a Training of Trainers at our annual state conference offers an excellent arena for beginning to prepare the next generation.

Mentorship:  A Win-Win

By Nina Henry

 Training of Leaders Project

As many of you may know, IAODAPCA offers a program that matches participants with mentors.   Of course, we always hope the person being mentored benefits from the experience, but sometimes we fail to underscore the enrichment the mentor experiences.  In this article I focus on the “win-win” aspect of mentorship through the eyes of the mentor.  I can comfortably say every time I have mentored someone, each of us has taken important steps forward in our respective careers.

My first experience as a mentor was 18 years ago with an intern at my agency.   I did not yet have a Masters degree and I had only worked in the substance abuse field for three years.  To make the situation more improbable, the intern was getting his Masters from the Adler School .  At the time, I had only a minimal understanding of  the Adlerian approach  to treatment and felt as though this intern could clinically run circles around me.  What ultimately happened was that I learned almost as much from him as he learned from me.  And this has been the case for every person I have mentored since that first experience.

As out of my depth as I was with my first intern, I was even more overwhelmed by my second mentee.  He was a medical resident and our Program Director asked me to teach him about substance abuse.  Several years ago our paths crossed professionally and now we occasionally confer on our mutual clients.  He assures me his experience working with me has helped him make appropriate assessment and referrals for his clients who suffer from addiction.

.  Since then, I have had many more opportunities to help people to learn about and pursue a career in the Substance Abuse field.  Another satisfying aspect of this experience is to see the  mentee flourish.  I have had at least one former mentee become a supervisor in the field and they have gone on to mentor others, as well.  At C4/Recovery Point, where I work, we have hired several people out of internships.  My last intern contacted me through the IAODAPCA website and currently works in our Intact Family Recovery program, working with women who have delivered substance-affected infants.

The ultimate rewards of this mentoring process, whether it is formally through an internship or less formally through a series of phone call, emails, and/or meetings, are not always immediately evident.  But after 18 years I can honestly say it has always been a win-win.

Mentorship:

A Career (and Life) Changing Experience

By Suzanne Huirheid

I have always considered a mentor to be someone that shines light into the unknown and yet indispensable along the path of one’s career journey. They are someone that challenges their mentee while carefully nurturing their growth as a professional. I can certainly say that this is exactly what I gained as a mentee to Nina Henry.

Making the decision to become a substance abuse counselor was an easy choice for me, but I was lost in terms of how to break in to the field. When I first began perusing the IAODAPCA website, I was still working in marketing and was figuring out how to best negotiate my career change. It was through that website that I found the mentorship program. I deliberated for a long time, but finally contacted Nina Henry just prior to starting my Masters degree in counseling.

From the very start, my mentor made me feel good about my decision and provided me with resources and advice relating to the long road ahead of me. We stayed in contact throughout my schooling and she eventually helped me secure an internship at her site. Serving as my supervisor, she guided me in exploring clinical practice and challenged me to be a better clinician. Under her training, I grew into a confident and effective clinician who is excited to continue my professional growth process. I strongly believe that it is because of this training that I was hired by my internship agency.

Being part of the mentorship program has made me not only a better person, but also a better clinician. I can easily say that I would not be where I am now in my career without my mentor in my life. Because of this experience, I hope to become a mentor one day and help pay it forward.

Failed to Certify:

The following is a list of IAODAPCA credentialed professionals who failed to recertify with IAODAPCA. There are a number of reasons why they have not renewed their credentials. These include, retirement, moving out of state, transferring credentials to another state, failing to pay fees and failure to obtain continuing education units. It is the responsibility of IAODAPCA to inform the profession and the general public public regarding a person’s change in status.
