Event Overview
Welcome message:

1. Physicians in primary care need up-to date, standardized and precise measuring tools for identifying SUD and their readiness for treatment

2. In the last 20 years physicians seek better strategies of managing Dual diagnosis (patients with mental health issues and SUD's)

3. Only in the last 10 years research has gained a better understanding of FASD and the long-term effects of pre-natal alcohol exposure

4. Patient readiness for SUD treatment (or change) is often difficult to assess but is a very important variable in a successful outcome


Joseph Beltempo, Ph.D., Concordia University, Department of Psychology, Senior Lecturer

Since 1984, Dr Beltempo is a Lecturer in the Psychology Department of Concordia University teaching courses spanning the spectrum of clinical and research areas. His clinical training was in Gestalt and Cognitive psychology at the University of Montreal. His approach takes into account the holistic (systemic) ways reflecting Native cultural perspectives together with contemporary clinical psychology. Since 1982, Dr. Beltempo, senior clinical psychologist, has been working for Kahnawake Shakotiia'takenhas Community Services, a Mohawk Community. His clinical work lately has focused on addiction, mental health, dual diagnosis, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders and various methods of clinical intervention. He is an active member of the FASD committee since 2005 and has received extensive training in diagnostics. He is also a Clinical site (Kahnawake) supervisor of Doctoral Interns in Psychology from Concordia and McGill University. For two years he was the Coordinator for the Kahnawake Outreach Project, which was established to deal with the after-effects of the 1990 Mohawk Crisis. He is the father of three young adults and married since 1980.

Dr. Beltempo received his B.A. in Psychology from McGill University. He earned his Master's (MA, 1979) and Ph.D. (1985) in Research & Clinical Psychology from Université de Montréal. He is a member of the Order of Psychologists of Quebec since 1979. 

Johanne Proulx, M.A., Psychologist

Ms. Proulx has been working as a psychologist since 1987 with an adult population presenting with various disorders in conjunction with addiction issues. Her work touches both the public services through a local community center (CLSC) and a private clientele in her practice. In her years with Kahanawake Social Services, Ms. Proulx was exposed to the necessity of adjusting formal training to cultural differences and had to take into account the consequences of multigenerational trauma. She can count on her skills using a CBT approach as well as a more holistic approach including the people’s story and the story of the elders in their community. 

For more than twenty years, Ms. Proulx was also involved in research and program evaluation at a Youth and Family Centers where children are under care for abuse or neglect. The various programs offered needed to meet the children’s emotional and developmental needs as well as offer the best guidance to help parent acquire adequate parenting skills. 

As part of her future goals, Ms. Proulx will be part of a pilot project looking at the Dialectical Behavior Therapy developed by Marsha Lineham (1993) to work with Borderline Personality Disorders. This model will be adapted into smaller modules in order to service a broader clientele and reach out to more clients.
