Overview

Managing craving:  Avoid or be mindful?  A review of the literature - Winter Webinar Series 2

Presented by Michael V. Burke, EdD, CTTS on Tuesday, February 8, 2022 ~ 12:00-1:00 p.m. CT

The inclusion of mindfulness training in treatment planning is a relatively new but increasingly common behavior change strategy.  Traditionally, and seemingly contrarily, relapse prevention planning for addiction has focused on developing skills to avoid triggers and distract from craving.  Which strategy works best for patients?  This webinar will provide participants with a review of literature and practical suggestions for working with patients to incorporate current research into counseling for behavior change.

Goals and Objectives:

 

  1. Explain mindfulness and help patients to practice mindful awareness

  2. Discuss different cognitive processes affected by mindfulness and cue avoidance

  3. Work with patients to select specific behavior change strategies that will help prevent relapse.
