Eric McLaughlin MSW


How interventionists and therapists can unite to improve outcomes

Eric McLaughlin’s goal is to end addiction and bring recovery, whatever that looks like, to as many people as possible.  As one of the owners of Ken Seeley Group, Eric has worked to create opportunities for recovery for all of those impacted by addiction. 

Eric believes that the treatment begins only when the family becomes fully engaged in the recovery process and thus has a passion for working with families in crisis to help bring about positive change. 

In 2016, Eric graduated with his MSW from The USC School of Social work and uses this knowledge to help shape clinical services.

PRESENTATION:

Bridging the Gap:  How interventionists and therapists can collaborate to provide a seamless client experience

Objective:

Often times, an interventionist works with families to help create a robust start to the recovery process but lack of collaboration and understanding of roles can lead to challenging relationships between treatment center, therapist and interventionists.  Developing a deeper understanding of how the therapist and interventionist can collaborate, can help create a more consistent and beneficial experience for the client, family and treatment team.

Learning objectives ~ attendees will:

  • Identify potential challenges in communication between interventionists and therapist
  • Have a deeper understanding of how to leverage the work of interventionist to benefit the treatment experience
  • Collaborate with families to help bring about more dynamic change in the family system
