The modality of the event is Face-to-face

The use of psychoactive substances and its adverse consequences, especially dependence and other complications characterized by mental and behavioral disturbances, has been the subject of intense debate and concern. Particularly in regard to whether it should be considered an independent nosological entity or if, on the contrary, this consumption is symptomatic of an underlying mental disorder. Mental and substance use disorders present clinically showing a wide spectrum of association patterns, which will vary according to the type of associated disorder, the type of substance involved and its consumption pattern, the severity of the symptoms, the more or less chronic course, the resulting disability and the degree to which functions are compromised in various areas. The lifetime prevalence of dual pathology for the general population is estimated at 3% -4%, which is a fairly high figure and increases significantly when the same estimate is made for the population diagnosed with mental disorders. This diploma seeks to offer an eminently practical training, in which those interested will be able to properly approach the diagnosis and treatment of dual pathology.

Psychologists, doctors, psychiatrists.
At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
1. Diagnose and treat psychiatric disorders that present a higher prevalence of comorbidity with substance use disorders.
2. Know the different treatment models that have demonstrated contrasted evidence in the care of dual pathology.

100% face-to-face, the methodology that will be implemented in the development of the course will be theoretical and practical, through the development of lectures, and the analysis of clinical cases
