COUN 560 - Addictive Behaviors

3 cr.
Approaches to understanding and counseling persons with addictive disorders are thoroughly reviewed with an emphasis on the bio-psycho-social model. The development of abuse and addiction, assessment, treatment, recovery, and relapse prevention are important topics in the course. The focus is on developing an up-to-date and scientifically accepted knowledge base, while helping students to develop helpful clinical attitudes (developmental and interdisciplinary approaches) in this growing area of counseling.
