(ISBN-10: 0061122432) Course Description This course is an entry-level graduate course that provides counselors and other human service workers with an overview of the addictive process. Theories of addiction counseling and application of these theories will comprise a significant part of this course, particularly with how they apply to work with individuals, couples, families, and groups. Co-occurring disorders, such as process addictions and mental illnesses will also be addressed. Students will develop conceptual knowledge, practical skills, and self-awareness concerning the etiology of addiction, assessment strategies (including the use of wraparound assessment and intervention services), wellness strategies for facilitating optimal development and preventing clinician burn-out, and diagnosis and treatment planning. This will be accomplished through assigned readings, seminar discussions, videotapes, lectures, case presentations, guest speakers, and student assignments. Instructor's Statement In teaching this course, I have three primary objectives: 1. To help you develop an understanding and awareness of the specific skills that are most useful in working with individuals with an addictive disorder; 2. To provide opportunities for practicing these skills; and 3. To provide opportunities for increased self-awareness and personal development.
