Addiction and Recovery 2024: Where We Have Been, Where We Are Going

ID: 4223WEB

This course examines how the field of addiction treatment and recovery has evolved since the development of 12-step recovery spaces in the 1950’s, from societal conceptualizations about addiction to how treatment and evidence-based practices have shaped what we now call clinical addiction treatment. Particular attention will be paid to how paradigms, stigma, and oppressive systems have influenced and shaped addiction and treatment trends. Participants will critically examine the successes and pitfalls of addiction treatment as it stands today, including specific models and systems of recovery and what the field calls “evidence-based practices”. Special attention will be paid to how the fields of neuroscience, epigenetics, and neuropharmacology have informed what we know today about addiction, and what it means for integrative recovery strategies moving forward.

Working with the Body Online: A Contemporary Gestalt Therapy Approach

ID: 5339WEB

This webinar draws on contemporary gestalt therapy to work with the body experientially. Since the pandemic, many of us have moved to working online. Working with the body online presents challenges. Gestalt therapists have particular interest and training in moment-to-moment awareness and bodily resonances (noticing micro-movements or subtle, energetic shifts, intuitive bodily awareness, and experimenting with these sensibilities). We will discuss possible ways to work with the body online in the here-and-now with our clients.

, This webinar will explore the contemporary gestalt therapy concepts of embodiment, aesthetic relational knowledge, presence, the between, and absence. As a phenomenological psychotherapy, we will invite attendees to explore their lived bodily experience. There will be opportunities for clinical and theoretical discussion and participants will be invited to explore movement online, including how this may be used within their own remote clinical practice.
