Addiction and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Social worker and author, Jason Simpkins, has worked in the human service field for over 17 years, with experience in individual and family counseling, addiction, suicidology, and crisis intervention.
A good working definition from the Merriam-Webster dictionary for “trauma” is, “a very difficult or unpleasant experience that causes someone to have mental or emotional problems usually for a long time”. Add to that an addiction, and it becomes even more of a challenge. This course will discuss in detail the combination of the two, and how to deal with them.
