Addiction counseling involves many facets and layers including understanding the complexities of addictions processes, implementing effective treatments, and creating an empathic climate that fosters favorable therapeutic outcomes. In addition, counselors need to have a unique knowledge base to be an effective addiction counselor. It would make sense then, that addiction counseling pedagogy is no simple matter, either. The presenters will discuss the implementation of several innovative experiential activities that give life to existing addictions counseling pedagogy. In addition to illustrating core concepts in addictions counseling and national standards (NAADAC), the experiential activities are designed to permeate the stigma that can surround individuals with addictions and elicit empathy from students.
