What you'll learn
- Students will gain insight into the nature of these issues and will be presented with tools and techniques with which to release and/or process same.
- There are no pre-requisites other than an interest. However, if one is dealing with trauma or serious depression then having some form of healthy support would be highly recommended.
This course is designed for anyone, lay-person or professional, who wishes to understand more about the many issues and possibilities related to addiction, anxiety, depression and trauma. It is a primer on these subjects - but it also offers an in-depth understanding of the subjects as well as options and process possibilities. please do not forget to get the download of the book that is located in the final chapter 'Things Have Changed'. It is a compilation of the many aspects of addiction, obsession, compulsion, fears, phobias and anxieties and hopefully provides both insight, awareness and understanding of the nature and origins of same, as well as possible means by which the underlying issues can be identified and potentially resolved. It is hoped that by working through this course, a lay person or clinician will recognize the need to collapse any stigma they may hold on to and develop a broader understanding of the bio/psycho/social/spiritual aspects of recovery. Looking at the latest research, please bear in mind the possible use of medication to assist in recovery from substance addiction and I would urge you to check out the work of Dr. Jeff Harries and the Canadian Alcohol Use Disorder (CAUD) website. If you or a client is having to deal with trauma (PTSD), then I would recommend utilizing my course 'Cleaning and Clearing PTSD', which is also on the Udemy platform or go to the Detachment Technique website - Please note that the book 'Notes & Quotes on the Issue of Addiction' is now included in this course and can be downloaded from the final chapter 'Things Have Changed' or you may got to the Detachment Technique website, look under extras and then E-Books and scroll down.
