The purpose of this course is to give students an overview of the
field of addiction (i.e., chemical, sexual, relationship, food,
gambling) including discussion of several conceptual models. The
course focuses on theories of addiction and current intervention
strategies. Students are given an opportunity to explore special
issues in the field among oppressed minorities that are of particular
interest to them and to share their findings with other students.
Emphasis will also be placed on introducing students to the
particular culture and ideologies that contribute to the context of
policymaking and provision of services in the field of addictions.
