Impact of Addiction on Family Members
Date: New Date Coming Soon!
Time: 9:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Location: Seton Hall University, South Orange, NJ
The Seton Hall University Division of Continuing Education and
Professional Studies, in partnership with the College of Education and
Human Services, is pleased to announce the launch of its Continuing
Professional Development Series for the Helping Professions.
These courses and workshops are designed to train and sharpen skill
sets for Mental Health practitioners from a variety of
disciplines. Please join us for our inaugural workshop, Impact of
Addiction on Family Members.
The statement, "addiction is a family disease," does not simply
refer to the chaos, financial stressors, and other potential dangers
that exist when one of its members has a substance use disorder.
In this program, we will explore how addiction affects the attitudes,
behaviors, self-esteem, ability to trust and experience intimacy, and
the overall well-being of all family members. We will examine the
consequences of dysfunctional communication and relationship patterns,
as well as the adaptation of rules and roles that contribute to the
dysfunction—to the detriment of the mental, physical, emotional, and
spiritual well-being of all family members. We also will explore
recovery options and provide a look into the healthy changes that come
about when the family, both using and non-using members, initiate and
employ a recovery process.
Presenter: Anthony Polizzi, MA, LCADC, CCS, CCJP,
an approved provider by the Addiction Professionals Certification Board
of New Jersey.
Upon completion of this workshop you will earn five CEUs, approved for
continuing education for marriage and family therapists, alcohol and
drug counselors, social workers, and professional counselors!
