Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This class gave us a look into the brain of addiction as well as how the media portrays the people suffering from addiction. This course was an eye opener to how poorly our country treats the issue of addiction and allowed us as students to think and design alternative was to treat addiction.
The highlight of this course was the freedom to choose our conference project topic. The freedom allowed my partner and I to explore how music therapy can help treat addiction and let us explore this topic further. Sivesind was very helpful and knew a lot about the topic and referred us to his colleagues to help us further our study. This made the course personal and made it exciting for my partner and I to do research and report back to the class.

Advice for students:
The advice I would give a student considering this course is to not be afraid to ask questions. Asking questions in this class always leads to interesting answers and could lead you to something that you would want to research more. This class is meant to be personalized to each individual student, so never be afraid to explore deeper into topics and connect the class to other areas of study that interest you as well.
