OF ADDICTIONS WEBINAR
CE Credit for psychologists is granted on a one credit per one contact hour basis.
This 1-hour webinar recording focused on the discussion of treatment of addictions such as alcoholism, drug use and internet addiction. Addiction was examined from the perspective of brain activity, as evaluated by the ClinicalQ assessment method and treated using neurotherapy. Dr Swingle's presentation took into consideration the generalizations that lead to self-medicating behavior: brain neurology, distraction from unhappy environmental conditions, emotional sedation, uppers & downers, and pleasure versus pain. When it comes to addictions, it is important to keep in mind other conditions that lead to addiction, such as untreated ADD or depression, due to the disorder's co-morbidities.
