This webinar will provide an encompassing, but easy to understand summary of what the latest neuroscience research tells us about how to conceptualize addiction. We will start with a fundamental understanding of existing misconceptions that perpetuate stigma and relapse-prone treatment. Then we will cover the best-known studies that inform the most effective and constructive ways of understanding what drives the psychology and behaviors of substance use disorders and process addictions. Finally, the webinar will provide an approach that puts this all together in a simple framework that is founded on evidence-based care and shown to lead to the best rates of remission of substance use disorder. This presentation is designed to be useful for all levels of training and experience.

Learning Objectives
  • List the most common misconceptions about substance use disorder and specific studies that refute them.

  • Understand an easy to use model that allows the participant to immediately practice addiction counseling techniques that are targeted to patient needs for optimized relapse prevention and outcomes.
