This International Learning Exchange will allow us all to explore more about current treatment trends, social contexts that impact individuals living with concurrent disorders and to develop ideas about how to implement new strategies to reduce barriers to care.

    Third Session:

    CSP students that have been placed at sites where they are learning to work with individuals with concurrent disorders will have the opportunity to share their learning experiences at the Community Engagement Symposium. This Student Learning Exchange will be broadcast to both the Vancouver and Chicago campuses.
