545 Addictions in Systems


This course is designed to help students understand the process of addiction in various systems such as work, family, friendships and the intrapersonal system.  Students will gain an understanding of the “continuum of care” in Minnesota as a network of resources to be used for intervention and treatment of addiction.  Personal “highs” will be explored and self-care plans developed.  Special populations will be studied.  Students will learn to use standard addiction screening techniques and family/work intervention processes through role-play and lecture.  Adlerian approaches to addiction will be discussed.
