Unit 7 Discussion 1
Evidence-Based Approaches and Co-occurring Disorders
Read the Discussion Participation Scoring Guide to learn how the instructor will evaluate your discussion participation throughout this course.
The assigned reading by Burnett, Porter, and Stallings (2011) emphasizes the advantages of an integrated treatment approach for co-occurring disorders (dual diagnosis). Discuss the advantages of integrating treatment compared to treating each disorder separately. What are some of the barriers to implementing an integrated approach and how can they be addressed?
Respond to the main discussion posts of two learners. What reactions do you have to the ideas they have presented? Include examples from the course readings or your own experience to support your perspective, and raise questions to continue the dialogue.
