Although the 12-step powerlessness approach to addiction treatment and mutual help remains the dominant US model, the self-empowering approach is gaining acceptance. Despite substantial surface differences, these approaches have significant similarities. In this 90-minute webinar, the presenter will compare and contrast these approaches, and provide attendees with techniques and perspectives from the self-empowering approach that can be integrated into addiction work, whatever approach is used. 

Learning Objectives

  1. Differentiate between the 12-step powerlessness approach and the self-empowering approach to addiction treatment. 

  2. Develop strategies for integrating techniques and perspectives from the self-empowering approach into addiction assessment and treatment.
