Addictions Conference 2013: Behind Closed Doors: What Addiction Psychologists Actually Do and Say in the Therapy Room

The New York State Psychological Association's Division on Addictions in co-sponsorship with The New School for Social Research Psychology Department present  "Behind Closed Doors: What Addiction Psychologists Actually Do and Say in the Therapy Room".

This conference will seek to answer the question "how do experienced, psychologically-informed substance use clinicians actually work with patients?" in a vivid and intimate manner.  Presenters will show, not just tell, what they do using case material, demonstrations, and clinical discussions as the primary mode of learning. Work in a range of treatment settings with diverse populations will be addressed. Highlights across workshops will include:

 - Different addiction treatment modalities: individual, couples, family, group, work with teens, outreach, intake, and intervention

 - Different stages of work or treatment strategies: assessment, building alliances, collaborative treatment planning, working through difficulties, and solidifying gains

 - Different approaches: behavioral, cognitive, psychodynamic, mindfulness-based, and experiential.

Workshop leaders will bring to life the creativity, humor, emotion, and other subtleties that are central to the therapeutic endeavor. We intend to create a conference where everyone can experience Addiction Psychology in action.
