This course is a survey of the field of counseling for addictive behaviors. The focus will be largely on alcohol and other drug use. Course topics will include models and theories of addiction, psychological processes and addiction, diversity and health disparities in addiction, and prevention and treatment models. The final portion of the course will cover other non-substance related addictive behaviors such as gambling. Throughout the course, students will be encouraged to challenge common conceptualizations of addictions as portrayed in our society.
