Description:

In this 3-CE seminar for mental health clinicians, offered as both a live webinar and in-person event, Dr. Sweeton will discuss the main areas of the brain involved in addiction, the reward circuit, and neurochemicals involved in reward, motivation, and addiction. Brain-informed clinical implications and practical techniques will also be introduced. Attendees will receive an electronic copy of the PowerPoint slides and scripts for all techniques presented.

Objectives:

  • Name and describe the "addiction hub" of the brain.
  • Identify the structures of the brain that comprise the mesolimbic pathway in the brain.
  • State and practice at least two techniques that can help increase self-awareness and reduce relapse in clients.
