How Substances and Processes Hijack the Brain and Treatment Implications
This workshop is designed to help clinicians understand the inner workings of those who struggle with addictions, whether to a substance or to a process. We will discuss the physiological process of the addicted brain and offer explanations for the intensity with which those processes persist in spite of consequences in the addict’s environment. We will also discuss the implications of addiction and recovery for the family of the addict and explore ways to involve the family in assisting in the recover process. By the end of the training, participants will be able to:
1) Explain how addictive behavior impacts key centers of the brain
2) Understand how emotional regulation and growth is impacted by addictive behaviors 3) Describe treatment implications for addressing the needs of those in recovery and of families.
