Conference Summary

Peter Gove will begin the day talking about the changing landscape of mental health diagnoses, touching on whether normal, expected bouts of sadness become “medicalized”.

Dr. Poulin will then provide insight to help us to understand the effects of cannabis on the brain and how we can recognize when problems might be developing, and how to limit potential harms from using cannabis. In the afternoon

Shannon Gander will explore some of the more challenging aspects of conversations- from disagreement on best approach to returning a client to work to working with a client who seems stuck or unmotivated.
