We witness a continuous parade of stars, financial gurus, clergy, politicians and athletes who enter rehabs sometimes repetitively. Is this about media coverage or are these elite canaries in the coal mines of our culture signifying a greater danger? Our understanding of addictions with the aid of neuroscience is expanding dramatically. With it is the realization of cultural and scientific shifts which underline the therapist’s role in facing our number one public health problem. One of the gifts of this challenge is our growth in technology which will transform what every therapist does for a living and maybe how humans evolve. But maybe we professionals are like the famous—reluctant to face difficult realities.
- Identify cultural and scientific shifts that impact a therapists’ role.
- List new ways to incorporate technology into your professional practice.
