This workshop tackles the complex issue of addiction, beginning by synthesising current research and thinking on causation, symptoms and, most importantly, treatment. Having set out a broad overview of addiction, it moves to more in-depth issues, including DSM 5’s take on addiction, the concept of multiple addictions, addiction interaction disorder and the steamy topic of sex addiction: a convenient excuse or an inconvenient reality? The workshop is peppered with examples from research and clinical practice to demonstrate the concepts.
This workshop has been accredited for seven CPD points.
