Most professionals are faced with an environment in which they are expected to know more, do more in less time, lead others and accept liability in an atmosphere that seems less respectful and often differs from their expectations during training. This situation, combined with the personality traits that it takes to get through the rigorous educational and training process can put these professionals at high risk for substance use disorder, behavioral addiction or disruptive behaviors.
Santé’s assessments are tailored to the specific needs of the professional; therefore, the different types of testing can vary from one individual to another. Collateral data can be collected from family, friends, colleagues, employers and from any written complaint that may have led to the assessment.
If you have clients who are exhibiting risky attitudes and behaviors around boundaries (verbal, moral, ethical, legal, sexual), whether substance abuse is involved or not, this course is a great early intervention that could save a license or a life.
