Criminal Offender and Substance Use Disorder
Treating the chemically dependent offender may be a challenging experience until we understand the individual characteristics of the offender, recognize the thinking process that propels criminal activity, and link personality traits with childhood trauma and the socialization process. In this course, we will identify the traits of the offender, relate addiction and offender behaviors, identify best practice treatment modalities, and address relapse/recidivism issues.

Personality Disorders and Substance Use Disorder
When we work with chemically dependent persons, we are for the most part, dealing with persons who present with personality traits that sabotage their treatment success. This course will review the characteristics of the 10 DSM personality disorders and address those disorders that are statistically present in persons with substance use disorder issues. Treatment implications will be discussed as they relate to building therapeutic relationship and adjusting treatment modalities to address the course of treatment.
