I will be presenting a webinar. “The Dance of Addiction” on Friday, March 11, 2:00 PM.

The Dance of Addiction: The Complexity of Addictive Disorders
Date: Friday, 3/11/16, 2:00-4:00 pm
Presenter: Louise Sutherland-Hoyt, LMHC
Description: This timely presentation presents and addresses the complexities of addictive behaviors and discusses how “addictions” are not only interactive, they can be interdependent. The course guides participants through results of research that demonstrates that treatment professionals seriously rethink treatment strategies by adopting a trauma-informed mindset and movement away from the Recovery Model. Current theory as to how addictions are formed will be discussed and a proposed shift in the language of addictions is offered so as to conceptualize treatment of addictions within the context of mental and behavioral health.
