Contingency Management: Theory and Practice LIVE WEBINAR

Thu Nov 18, 2021

As Substance Use Disorder (SUD) treatment programs focus on treating the rising number of stimulant use disorders that occur concomitant with opioid use disorders, there is a growing need for evidence-based interventions to address the stimulant use. This one-hour training will present an introductory level orientation to the theory, principles, and practice of contingency management (CM). The legal and regulatory environment for implementing CM will be discussed. Tailoring CM to be implemented in specific settings will be addressed.  

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of the training, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the three essential elements common to all contingency management approaches.
  2. Distinguish at least two factors to consider when identifying the reinforcers to use in a CM program.
  3. Determine which three of the seven “founding principles” are most relevant to developing and implementing a CM program in their program/organization.
