Free NAADAC Webinar
Wednesday, November 8, 2017 @ 3-4:00pm ET (2CT/1MT/12PT)
Neurocounseling is a relatively new approach in addiction treatment that has been shown to be effective for a variety of addiction related issues including recovery management and relapse prevention. Neurocounseling is based on the fact that behavioral and psychological symptoms have underlying neurological foundations. Addiction counselors can help clients bridge the gap between brain and behavior by becoming “brain-wise” and using neurocounseling interventions that target recovery and relapse prevention. This webinar will cover the basics of neurocounseling and highlight two interventions that addiction counselors can use in their practice.
- Identify the basics of neurocounseling and how to incorporate neurocounseling interventions into their practice.
- Examine two specific neurocounseling recovery and relapse prevention interventions to use with clients.
- Assess the effectiveness of neurocounseling interventions used with clients.
