Family Therapy and Substance Abuse Treatment  
15 Contact Hours @ $50                                                         (On-line course)

Family therapy has a long, solid history within the broad mental health field. Within the family therapy tradition, the family as a whole is the focus of treatment.

Over the past 20 years or so, sharing has increased between the substance abuse treatment and family therapy fields.

The intent of this course is to help counselors and family therapists acquire a basic understanding of each others' fields and incorporate aspects of each others' work into their own therapeutic repertoire. The course explores the evolution of the field of family therapy and the primary models of family therapy, presents concepts from the substance abuse treatment field, and discusses the effectiveness and cost benefits of family therapy. It explores the impact of substance abuse on families, and discusses approaches to therapy in both substance abuse treatment and family therapy.

The course provides basic information about theory, treatment modalities, and the role of 12-Step programs in substance abuse treatment; and discusses integrated models for substance abuse treatment and family therapy. Treatment for various cultural populations and appropriate applications to family therapy are presented.
