Course Title:
Living Life on Life's Terms: Integrating Spirituality into the Therapeutic Process with Addicted Adu
Format: Web-based Training
Cost (US $): 35.00
Credit Types Offered:

8 of CEU

Course Description: For years the spiritual component of the recovery process has largely fallen under the auspices of Twelve Step programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous. Recently, however, there has been an increased awareness and interest in spiritual practices and processes as adjuncts to more traditional medical and psychotherapeutic interventions in the addictive process. This course will explore some of the latest thinking on the value of spiritual beliefs and practices in the recovery process and how the addictions counselor can integrate a spiritual focus into treatment without pushing a particular religion or set of beliefs on the client. We will investigate the concept that an individual's spirituality is an invaluable resource in recovery and work with specific practices, such as meditation and mindfulness, as not only a part of the Twelve Step tradition, but as specific tools for stress reduction, and to help clients expand awareness and learn to meet life's ups and downs without the intervening effects of chemical intoxication.
