This course has been designed to facilitate prospective professional counselors, and church leaders, the tools to understand the addictive process associated with chemical dependency and other addictions. As an intensive course, students should expect to have a significant amount of readings each day of class, and two more weeks after the last class to finish two main assigments. Topics to be covered include, prevention, assessment, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, treatment planning and strategies, interventions, relapse, family issues and the process of recovery. Current approaches for treating chemical dependency, eating disorders, compulsive gambling and sexual addictions will be examined. This course will also help students to develop an understanding of how faith in Jesus Christ provides the grace, hope and compassion needed to integrate effective treatments as part of the redemptive process of addictive individuals.
