Addictions Conference 2013: Behind Closed Doors: What Addiction Psychologists Actually Do and Say in the Therapy Room
Friday, October 4, 2013 at 8:30 am to 4:00 pm
Theresa Lang Community and Student Center (Room I202), Arnhold Hall, I 202 55 West 13th Street
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.
