Healing Trauma through Self-Parenting

The 43rd Annual New England School of Addiction Studies will take place from June 18 -21, 2012 at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. The Summer School is a four-day intensive experience for participants to further their knowledge, skills, and experience in the field of addiction services through in-depth coursework.

The Summer School is appropriate for anyone who recognizes the impact of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs on individuals, families, and communities. Each year, participants from many disciplines come together to form a unique and diverse community. The School’s comprehensive curriculum offers a wide variety of best practice courses in the field of addiction services. The School’s nationally and regionally recognized faculty includes instructors who are respected for their accomplishments in the behavioral health field, and also recognized for their training expertise.

The School of Addiction Studies originated 43 years ago by the six New England state substance abuse agencies, the New England Institute continues to work with the six state agencies to provide training opportunities needed to support substance abuse service system development and workforce development in our region.

The 12th Annual School of Prevention Studies is designed for prevention professionals from various settings to combine intensive study in an area of special interest with the opportunity to network. The School features keynote addresses and a variety of workshops to choose from delivered by nationally and regionally recognized speakers. The workshops incorporate a variety of current and emerging research based prevention programming, from core through more advanced skills. This event is a collaborative effort of the New England and New York state substance abuse agencies and several other organizations. We invite you to join us for intensive and stimulating studies and networking.

Over the years, New England Institute summer programs have been developed to respond to specific needs in our regional workforce. The 12th Annual New England School of Prevention Studies will again be co-located with this year’s program. Participants have the opportunity to attend offerings from both programs, and co-locating the schools offers wonderful networking and combined learning opportunities for participants working in different areas of the behavioral health services continuum.

We welcome you to be part of our community. If you work in treatment, prevention, recovery services, other social services, or a related field, please join us for new knowledge, skills, and networking in June! WELCOME!
