studies to inform their practice, and they are also able to use their experience practicing with clients to guide their research questions” (Knight & Tetrault, 2017, p.3). John Gottman did exactly that. He relies heavily on research in his treatment (The Love Lab, n.d.). His methods have been proven to be effective, thus allowing him to help many people. I too am studying to become an addiction counselor. I agree with your approach of using the Scientific-Practitioner model in your practice. When asked how I would implement the Scientific-Practitioner model in my future counseling career, I stated I would use methods similar to John Gottman, i.e. measuring physical responses. I could help the client recognize certain things that contribute to their relapse. Recognizing triggers is essential when recovering from addiction. References Gottman, J.D. The Love Lab. (n.d.).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
