Talking Point Seminar Series - November 20

Posted on: Tuesday, 19 November 2013

Turning Point’s public seminar series is pleased to announce the following presentation on ASSERTIVE LINKAGE AND SOCIAL CONNECTEDNESS presented by Associate Professor David Best.

The paper will summarise a body of recent research looking at the association between social engagement and wellbeing in drinkers and drug users and will discuss this in the context of the Social Identity Model of Identity Change. The presentation will also introduce a new method for mapping social networks (for clinical or research purposes) that has been piloted in adult and youth services in Victoria.

David Best is Head of Research and Workforce Development at Turning Point and Associate Professor of Addiction Studies at Monash University, and leads the Treatment and Systems research group. He has worked in research and policy in the AOD field for around 20 years.
