Students develop the skill set to provide a client-centered and client driven continuum of treatment for individuals with addiction problems. With a strong framework of individual and group counselling skills, students study individual, gender, and societal considerations and the resulting treatment implications through the lens of trauma informed care. They practice motivational interviewing techniques, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and dialectal behaviour therapy (DBT) while learning to match client needs with intervention options. In addition, students reconstruct education and prevention strategies in an effort to design, facilitate and evaluate such tools.
