The purpose of this course is to provide an overview of the counselor's knowledge base about ethical theories, principles, and the application of these principles in accountability courts.
As drug courts continue to grow in support and client volume, more tools are necessary for optimizing their efficiency. The difference between having success with a few clients and many clients is the ability to easily collect, handle, and disseminate large amounts of data. This can be challenging given the complexity of the drug court team and the nuances of its interactions. Connexis Cloud (CNX Case) is a case management software system designed specifically for recovery/treatment courts, and it digitally connects your team through task automation while uniting all efforts into a more intuitive collaboration.
Participants will learn new strategies for achieving successful quarterly submissions.
Participants will be able to access tutorial videos from our website, www.ims-trident.com, to learn how to use all new features as they are developed.
Participants will learn how to enter data in a way that optimizes reliability and usefulness in reporting.
As ACCM has transitioned from CaseWorX, the system is changing from a data collection tool to a workflow management tool. As such, in this training we will be discussing system changes that reduce duplicative data entry, simplify communication between team members, and allow for individual program-level customization of fields and system layout to simplify system navigation. We will also review the ad-hoc court calendar, which allows each program to pick the data points they would like to have appear on their court calendars.
An essential function of a case management tool is to provide data to the courts and to the state about program operations and outcomes. We will discuss recent changes to state reporting criteria and the implications those changes have for how courts record data. We will also discuss upcoming changes to both programmatic and analytical capability within CaseWorX.
Seeking Safety is a present-focused, evidence-based coping skills approach developed as an integrated treatment for co-morbid issues regarding trauma (PTSD) and substance use disorders (SUD). It does not require the client to dwell on the past, although it can be combined with trauma-processing methods. The primary goal of Seeking Safety is to promote recovery by assisting the individual in developing strategies to keep them safe from the effects of trauma, and the painful impact of substance use.
This training does not require any license in order to become certified. However, due to the limited number of slots available, we ask that priority be given to the treatment, coordinator, case manager. Program Coordinators should download the
Seeking Safety Training MOU
document, obtain all the required signatures, and submit the MOU with registration.

Accountability courts are extremely successful in Georgia. Many participants make tremendous strides, while enrolled and thrive with the support of treatment teams, community resources, and peers. Alumni Groups give participants the opportunity to stay connected to the support systems they have used to create and maintain a life of meaning and prosperity.

The training will provide real-life experiences from an Alumni Group leader and instructional materials to help your team develop an alumni group.
