Ireland Leads the Way

A number of people have told me that my new book, Empowering Your Sober Self, would make a good classroom text in addiction recovery, but no one has done it  -- until now.  The pioneer is Arthur McCullough, BSc, BSSc, MA, at the Queen's University in Belfast.  The University has announced a new class beginning April 28, as follows:

Empowering People Against Addictions
Arthur McCullough, BSc, BSSc, MA

5 weekly sessions on Wednesdays 7.00 pm to 9.00 pm, starting 28 April

This course is about how and why people get into addictions, and about how they can get out of them. It covers major areas of addiction such as alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex; and related ones, such as isolation, suicide, physical and mental illness. Discussions involve perspectives in science, culture and society, and will focus on the recovery model.

Recommended Textbook: Empowering your Sober Self, Martin Nicolaus, (Jossey-Bass. A Wiley Imprint).

5 CATS Points (Level 1)
