Community Reinforcement Approach Training - June 19th and 20th

Community 

Reinforcement 

Approach (CRA) 

In the Community Reinforcement Approach (CRA), clinicians and patients work collaboratively on identifying individual goals. The Community Reinforcement Approach (CRA) is a psychosocial intervention for individuals with alcohol and other drug use disorders that has been adapted for several populations, including adolescents (the Adolescent-Community Reinforcement Approach; A-CRA) and family members of individuals resistant or reluctant to enter treatment (Community Reinforcement and Family Training; CRAFT). 

The focus is to help individuals find healthier, more adaptive ways to meet their social and emotional needs than using substances. It is comprised of a broad group of behavioral interventions that provide or withhold rewards and negative consequences quickly in response to at least one measurable behavior (e.g., substance use as measured by a drug test, also called a toxicology screen).
