HAZELDEN'S CLINICAL INNOVATORS SERIES presents signature topics by industry leaders who define today's (and tomorrow's) standards of substance abuse treatment. Watch the video workshop, read the clinician's manual, then take the post-test.* Staying current and maintaining credentials has never been more convenient.
Continuing revelations about the human brain are transforming our approaches to medical treatment, education, and human development. In this guide, Dr. Carlton Erickson, director of the Addiction Science Research and Education Center at the University of Texas, writes not only a "brain science 101" text, but helps explain how developments in neurobiology call for basic changes in the very ways that addiction professionals discuss, define, and treat chemical dependence. In an easy-to-understand language, Dr. Erickson renders the complex neuroscience of dependence in a clear and refreshing approach to facilitate understanding and use in treatment and recovery. This guide brings the hidden world of neurotransmitters, axons, receptors, vesicles, synapses, and neuroscience to light as an educational tool for clinicians to use with their clients.
This manual builds on the content of the video. The thirty-question post-test is worth fifteen continuing education hours upon successful completion.
