Alliance-member agency Lincoln Child Center is hosting a one-day clinical workshop entitled Improving Treatment Outcomes with Youth Substance Abuse and Delinquency on May 25 at the Jack London Aquatic Center in Oakland from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The speaker is Howard Liddle, developer of Multidimensional Family Therapy (MDFT). Dr. Liddle is Professor in the Departments of Public Health Sciences and Psychology, and Director of the Center for Treatment Research on Adolescent Drug Abuse at the University of Miami. 

Covering the latest scientific knowledge needed to treat youth drug taking and antisocial behaviors, Dr. Liddle will teach how to use this knowledge within a multidimensional, multi-component and family-based treatment approach. Participants will learn:

  1. how to apply the MDFT framework to create practical case formulations, and how to specify case-specific and individualized treatment goals;
  2. how to design interventions that target individual youth, parent(s), family and community domains. Videos will illustrate the approach in action, showing individual sessions with the adolescent, parent(s), community collaborators and families; and
  3. the essential skills and practical interventions within each of these target domains.

Critically, the workshop is designed to help participants integrate the evidence-based MDFT methods into their practices and clinical settings.

For more information and to register contact Minjon LeNoir at or 510/273-4700, ext. 4331. Please RSVP no later than May 11.
