About the Course:
This course, based on the workbook by Rebecca Williams, Ph.D. and Julie Kraft, MFT, presents a comprehensive approach to working with clients in recovery from addictive behaviors. This course is unique in that it addresses the underlying loss that clients have experienced that may be fueling addictive behaviors. Counseling skills from the field of mindfulness therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy are outlined in a clear and easy-to-implement style. Healthy strategies for coping with depression, anxiety, anger, and grief are provided along with ways to improve interpersonal relationships.
This course is based on the book, Mindfulness Workbook for Addiction: A Guide to Coping With the Grief, Stress, and Anger That Trigger Addictive Behaviors created by Rebecca E. Williams, Ph.D. and Julie S. Kraft, M.A., LMFT in 2012.
