Impact of Addiction on Family Members

Date: New Date Coming Soon!
9:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Seton Hall University, South Orange, NJ Campus

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!
