The Delivery of Psychological Interventions in Substance Misuse Services in Scotland Report

'The Delivery of Psychological Interventions in Substance Misuse Services in Scotland Report’ was published by the Scottish Government in June 2018.  The paper was developed by the Lead Psychologists in Addiction Services Scotland (LPASS) in partnership with the NES PI&TAMH Substance Misuse workstream.  This guidance has been introduced as a framework to help local areas assess their own training needs and plan for the development of the workforce. Following the publication, a series of events looked at how to maximise the use of current education and training resources to support this report and highlight current training opportunities offered by NES to support workforce development.
