There is a growing list of “things” that humans seem to be addicted to. Historically called Process Addictions, they can include electronics, food, and gambling. This training will help you understand what these addictions are, how to identify them, how to address the concerning behavior with clients and where to gather additional information. While there are many behavioral addictions, this session will focus on social media, pornography, gaming, food and gambling.
