A two-part training series with Dr. Mark Lukin will provide Mental Health and Criminal Justice Professionals with an integrated approach to dealing with consumers with mental health and substance use disorders who are involved in the Criminal Justice system. 

Part 1 of this training will provide an overview of mental health diagnoses with an emphasis on Personality Disorders and demonstrate how to encourage clients to embrace goals that are both self-serving and good for public safety.

Part 2 will build on topics discussed in Part 1 and pay special attention to the integration of Mental Health and criminal justice approaches, balancing individual and community rights, and the use of risk assessment and risk management in directing services. Strategies for professional self-care, managing morale, and coping with “career critical incidents” will also be discussed.

An application has been made for 3.5 APA, Criminal Justice, and Nebraska LADC continuing education hours each for Part I and Part 2 of this training. Participants must attend the entire training to receive continuing education hours. APA hours can be used by psychologists, LMHP, LIMHP, LADC, and social workers.

The University of Nebraska Public Policy Center (NUPPC) is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The NUPPC maintains responsibility for this program and its content.
