This course is new or has been updated recently.

This course is based on the updated and revised second edition of The Mindfulness Workbook for Addiction: A Guide to Coping with the Grief, Stress, & Anger That Trigger Addictive Behaviors, 2nd Edition by Rebecca E. Williams, Ph.D. and Julie S. Kraft, LMFT. The course 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 fuel 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 to identify and cope with depression, anxiety, anger, and grief are provided along with ways to improve interpersonal relationships. This course offers information on mindfulness skills and outlines ways to understand the link between addiction and other mental health challenges.
