Training Overview Description

There has been recent emphasis on the role of beliefs, motivation and medication in the treatment of disorders, including substance use disorder and gambling disorder. This session examines the role of emotion in the development and maintenance of these disorders, as well as the role of emotions in treatment. As we move toward medical models of treatment, this discussion considers the heart of emotions and therapeutic alliance as central parts of the change process to establish freedom from the harmful behavioral processes and attainment of long-term recovery.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will be able to identify the role of emotions in the development, maintenance, and resolution of substance use disorder and gambling disorders.
  • Participants will be able to identify the role of five key emotions including fear, anger, and grief.
  • Participants will be able to describe the role of emotions in deepening the therapeutic alliance.
