  1. Behavioral or "Process" Addictions

    For the majority of time that addiction treatment has been available in the United States, the focus has been on the destructive misuse of alcohol &/or other chemical substances. However such "process addictions" as gambling, compulsive sexual behavior, and an increasing variety of internet-related pursuits have gained increasing amounts of attention, as unchecked involvement has led to negative outcomes that have impaired quality-of-life and crippled level-of-functioning for many. This webinar will discuss cross-cutting elements found to be common to all forms of chemical and behavioral addiction, as well as reviewing existing recovery resources and further implications for treatment & recovery.

    Objectives

    • Outline six elements of a working definition of addiction with cross-cutting application to chemical and behavioral manifestations.
    • Distinguish between gambling, compulsive sexual behaviors, and problematic internet-related behaviors, and identify three treatment approaches that hold promise for effective treatment across these target areas.

  10. Alumni Webinar Series | Equity Footprint for Community Organizations

    Note: ​This webinar series features invited alumni speakers with expertise in a variety of social work practice settings. The series is offered free of charge to alumni of the U-M School of Social Work, but anyone who is interested is welcome to register. You do not need to be an alum to participate in these sessions.

    This "Equity Footprint" framework is geared toward community organizations to comprehensively analyze their impact (or footprint) in advancing equity. The model for the Equity Footprint derives from the carbon footprint--both begin with the understanding that harmful systems and practices have been established as the default. Rather than simply minimizing a damaging footprint, an Equity Footprint invites the organization to enact positive, equitable change across several domains including: programs, operations, culture, leadership & governance, evaluation & learning and communications.

    Objectives

    • Apply diversity, equity and inclusion in a framework for community organizations.
