Course Description

Alcohol abuse and alcohol dependency is getting worse. For whatever reason a person drinks alcohol, may that be socialising, going out or drinking alone. Ultimately anyone who drinks alcohol for any reason is drinking to alter and change the way they feel and think at that time when they choose to drink.

When the use of alcohol becomes repetitive, frequent and habitual, that is when there can be a potential for alcohol dependency to develop. To regularly drink alcohol to change and alter the way you think and feel is indicative of an underlying problem.

Alcohol abuse/dependency is symptomatic of deeper underlying causes. Excessive alcohol consumption on a regular basis usually reflects psychological and emotional material that has been either averted or escaped from. It is at this point some form of intervention or psychological help is essential before the dependency on alcohol, simply put, takes over.

Effective counselling to address the causes and triggers of why that person is drinking alcohol is essential.

This practical and in-depth course helps provide support, guidance and how best to deal with the drinkers problem.

This course explores the patterns, influences, triggers, possible causes and effects through the growth and development of alcohol dependency and provides a step-by-step theoretical model and process that has proved effective in practice to find a solution. Includes case studies.

This course provides an excellent resource for all types of therapists and specifically counsellors working with or around people with alcohol problems.
