This seminar is particularly timely for the New Jersey mental health community. Medical Marijuana has been legal in NJ for quite some time. As you probably already know, New Jersey just passed laws for recreational use. As such, it is important for therapists to understand the impact these new laws can pose to mental health.
With recommendations for young children with severe illness, to adults with PTSD, chronic pain, Tourrette’s, along with a wide host of other chronic conditions, health practitioners are wondering:
“Does this help or harm my patient?”
At the end of the program the learner will:
-Be able to comprehend and describe facts about cannabis and its effects on the body, brain and possible medication interactions
-Be able to describe and comprehend, what and how much patients use for their medical conditions
-Be able to describe and differentiate between medical, recreational, and dependent or problematic cannabis use and apply this knowledge to motivating towards appropriate level of care.
This seminar will also feature a question and answer segment with an industry expert.
We will cover the history from antiquity through the present and discuss in depth the theoretical and real world applications of this evolving issue.
