ADS558 Individual & Group Counseling & Case Management (3 cr.)

This course focuses on providing an understanding of the unique considerations when working within an individual and group format in the continuum of care of alcohol and drug problems. The biopsychosocial model is used to conceptualize addiction, and prevailing modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral, Solution-Focused Brief, Motivational Interviewing, 12-Step Facilitation, and Harm Reduction strategies. The 12 core functions of addictions counseling provide a framework for navigating the treatment process.

Upon completion of this course, students are expected to be able to do the following:

  1. Distinguish between individual and group counseling and case management.
  2. Articulate one’s own strengths, growth areas, needs, and motivations to help those struggling with alcohol and drug abuse challenges.
  3. Assess ethical dilemmas and legal issues commonly encountered in training and professional practice of alcohol and drug counseling.
  4. Differentiate and integrate the prevailing models of treatment when providing services for alcohol and drug abuse challenges.
  5. Apply knowledge of drug interactions and brain chemistry for the coordination of care.
  6. Apply different evidenced-based strategies for assessment, treatment, and case management.
