In this discussion, you will pretend you are going to offer psychoeducation about addiction and its impact on the body to your clients. Your psychoeducation should answer these two questions: What is addiction? How is it impacting your body?
You will practice providing psychoeducation on this topic to your client. In your post, please share the following:
- Who do you imagine your client to be? Will it be an adolescent? An adult? Will that person be going through a detox process or in treatment of some kind? You are encouraged to choose a population that you anticipate you might work with in the future.
- Explain the most important information to provide to your client in an age appropriate way.
- Create a handout that you could use to review the information with the client. Share this as a PDF with the class. The idea is to create a group of “resources” that you all can save to use in practice. Make sure you use citations for information that comes from the textbook and/our course readings.
Initial Post Prompt:
Your initial discussion board post should be between 200 – 300 words in length plus the PDF handout. Be sure to use APA style and format If you use in-text citations and references. You should also include a descriptive subject line in this initial post.
