Addiction is more and more a part of our society. From substances to behaviour, from legal to illicit there is a lot to learn, consider and explore.

During this workshop we will:

  • Understand and define addiction
  • Acquire an understanding of the different types of addictions (drugs, prescription, gambling, eating disorders, gaming, pornography, shopping, meditating,- anything can become an addiction)
  • Discuss the roots and multiple causes of addiction
  • Develop your ability to assess your clients’ needs and design a protocol to help your clients in their recovery

This workshop counts towards the Health and Mental Wellbeing Specialist Diploma.
