A Webinar with Dr. Kathryn Bell and Dr. Michael J. Cameron
CEUs: 2 CEUs in Ethic for Board Certified Behavior Analyst
Given the consequential impact of drug addiction on relationships, families, and society, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) has earmarked a considerable amount of money to support addiction treatment research. In fact, assessment and treatment methodologies based on behavioral science are among the most thoroughly researched forms of addiction treatment. However, with the exception of a special issue in the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis (2008), the results of research are typically published in medical, clinical psychology, or drug abuse journals.
In consequence, the purpose of this webinar is to:
- review the wide range of variables that set the occasion for drug addiction,
- discuss the impact of drug addiction on intimate relationships and family functioning, and
- describe behavior analytic methods for assessment and relationship-based and individualized treatment.
