Event Description

Master Series in Clinical Practice

Co-sponsors: The Continuing Education Program at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a Major Teaching Hospital of Harvard Medical School; Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute; and William James College.

David Treadway, Ph.D., instructor

Much has changed and much has not, since Dr. Treadway first began giving this workshop on family treatment of substance abuse. The very nature of how we consider addictions has evolved significantly as we now understand the process addictions, of sex, eating disorders, spending, shopping, etc. We also now appreciate the consistency of virtually almost all folks with an addiction also suffering from an additional diagnosable mental disorders like manic-depressive, anxiety, depression and PTSD. We also now recognize the rising epidemic of medically prescribed opioids and other drugs which are being dangerously abused. Dr Treadway will be presenting a workshop that updates our understanding of addiction and how best to utilize a family therapy model with which to treat it. He will discuss and present cases on working with couples, doing Interventions, working with families with abusing children and working with families in which the child is the presenting problem while one of the parents is hiding a substance abuse problem. He will also present on working with adult survivors of abusive and neglectful parents. He will also review his learnings, regrets, failures and successes of his own experience working with this challenging population for 45 years.

Specific learning objectives:

  • Describe updates to our understanding of addiction and how best to utilize a family therapy model with which to treat it.

  • Discuss and present cases on working with couples, doing Interventions, working with families with abusing children and working with families in which the child is the presenting problem while one of the parents is hiding a substance abuse problem

  • Examine how to work with adult survivors of abusive and neglectful parents.

  • Review his learnings, regrets, failures and successes of his own experience working with this challenging population for 45 years.
