Substance Use and Misuse in the Family

 

Alcohol use can have a destructive effect on individuals, as well as their families and loved ones. The main goal of this course is to give you in-depth knowledge about research concerning the impact of alcohol use disorders on families, as well as the family’s impact on the development and persistence of alcohol use. You will learn the fundamentals of the family systems approach that are essential for you to understand the complicated dynamics of families struggling to deal with the impact of alcohol use disorders. You also will learn about factors that influence recovery, as well as the effectiveness of specific intervention models that are used for substance abuse. Furthermore, you will be able to identify specific risk factors that are related to developing an alcohol use disorder. Vignettes and interactive exercises give you the opportunity to apply these concepts so that you can expand your effectiveness with the families you encounter in your work. This course is intended for entry and intermediate level healthcare professionals.
