|MSWK 645 - ADVANCED SEMINAR OF TOPICS ADDRESSING SUBSTANCE USE DISORDERS|
This course will examine an array of topics necessary for comprehensive practice in the field of addictions. Topics include using research to inform practice, ethical practice, culturally competent practice, specific interventions for compulsive gamblers, and practitioner self-care. Students will synthesize and integrate that knowledge with previous social work practice knowledge to effectively work
with this specialized population. This is the second of two substance abuse electives that satisfy the academic requirements for students who are interested in pursuing a licensure in clinical alcohol and drug counseling (LCADC).
This course will also look at the role of policy related to substance use disorders such as the war on drugs and its impact on treatment. There is also a study abroad option available to add on to this course in Portugal during spring break where students will compare policy and treatment approaches within the Portuguese system to the system in the United States.
