This workshop includes a discussion of triggers, and their potential for relapse. Citing tools from multiple researchers and therapists, the presenter will discuss treatment tools such as functional analysis, relapse prevention and self-efficacy to offer clinicians techniques for working towards positive outcomes with addicted clients. Due to time constraints, the technique portion will be an overview rather than in-depth practicum, intended to provide participants with the information to investigate the techniques further at their leisure.
By the end of this session, the participant will be able to:
- Define a trigger, as related to an addiction, and identify at least three types of triggers;
- Identify the primary purpose of relapse prevention;
- Understand and define ego depletion;
- Assist a client in cognitive restructuring;
- Use functional analysis as a method of increasing client mindfulness.
- Discussion of types of triggers and identification of triggers (Ciarrocchi)
- Purpose and concepts of relapse prevention (Marlatt and George)
- CBT change process and functional analysis
- Defining ego depletion (Baumeister, et al.)
- Theory of Self-Efficacy (Bandura)
