Given the high rates of addiction and co-occurring disorders in a criminal justice population, familiarity with the latest research on addiction is essential to attend to the needs of the clients we serve. A very high percentage of domestic violence and higher risk offenders struggle with addiction in addition to other criminogenic needs. This webinar will focus on the latest research on addiction and the brain. We will cover strategies and skills to support someone through the recovery process. We will explore the fundamentals of relapse prevention and evidence-based ways of facilitating long-term behavior change. Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Describe the impact of addiction on the brain.
- Apply at least three skills to facilitate long-term behavior change out of addiction.
- Identify three ways to recognize and respond to the precursors of relapse.
