The "Addiction Slate" - Set of All 5 - (21 CEUs) - Daniel Linder, MFT

The "Addiction Slate" is designed to bring clinicians up to date, stimulate thought and discussion, broaden your understanding, enhance clinical skills, and make you a better consultant and teacher regarding all recovery and relationship-related matters.

The Relational Model of Addiction - $69 (6 CEUs)

“An inherent limitation of a strictly medical model approach is ignoring the fact that ‘pathological dependence’ implies that a relationship, one that is emotional and psychological in nature, has formed with the substance or activity (i.e. gambling, porn, etc.) The ‘pathological dependency’ is a pathological relationship, one in which there is a beginning, progressive emotional involvement and a synergistic interplay between dependence and denial.”

The Relational Model of Addiction accounts for pre-disposing conditions and etiology; applies across addictions including drug addiction and alcoholism, porn, sex, and love addictions and compulsive gambling; and has profound treatment implications for those in recovery.

Relational Recovery Training - $89 (8 CEUs)

“No (intimate) relationships during the first year of sobriety."

Makes sense. Stabilize first, before getting involved in a new relationship. But what next?
How does the recovering addict gain the necessary skills? Where does he or she go for guidance?”

This course focuses on basic relationship-building principles, pitfalls, distinctions and skills that will empower the recovering addict, or anyone else for that matter, to transform the quality of his or her relationships.

Ideally suited for health professionals, this course will enhance practitioners’ effectiveness when making interventions and educating clients on all relationship related matters.

Diagnosing Addiction - $29 (2 CEUs)

Diagnosing Addiction presents a fresh, new approach for doing assessments to determine whether an addiction exists and the diagnosis of addiction is in order, which makes early stage intervention possible. We're stepping off the plateau of the disease concept by utilizing 'subjective' criteria, i.e. manifestations of denial, to make a 'subjective' diagnosis. From the Relationship Model of Addiction perspective, the dynamics of addiction center on the interplay of dependence and denial, and that they exist hand in hand -- where ever there is dependence, there is denial’ and where there is denial, there is dependency. Manifestations of denial, subjective in nature, may be the gateway to diagnosis, challenging the prevailing adherence to a Medical Model orientation that deems only objective criteria real and valid.

A transcript of a session with a marijuana addicted patient is taken apart. Various types of manifestations of denial are identified and how to interpret them are discussed.

Mastering Intervention - $29 (2 CEUs)

An intervention is a carefully orchestrated, step-by-step process that begins at the point of initial contact from a family member. The counselor can then proceed to set up and guide the family through the stages of Psycho-education, Recollection, Rehearsal and Action Planning and culminating with Implementation-- when they address the addict directly and need for treatment.

Be ready for that initial contact from a significant other, which could happen anytime and happens frequently.

Add an essential tool to your array of services. Expect to be able to effectively conduct an intervention upon completion of this training.
