Treating Depression in Clients with Co-Occurring Addictions

Event Details

Depression and addiction often go hand-in-hand, each being a risk factor for the other disorder. Taking a brief look at the neurobiology of addiction formation and the underpinnings of depression, Dr. Wehrenberg will discuss how psychotherapy can effectively change the brain of the depressed client with an addiction. Participants will be able to immediately apply the methods for treatment to boost recovery from both disorders and improve relapse prevention planning for clients with depression and addiction.
