Working as a counselor in the addiction field, I am drawn in to an argument that recovering addicts make better addiction counselors than counselors who have not experienced addiction. I am avoiding this direct question in an effort to incorporate a more authentic response and in part preparing a paper with the essence of this question in mind.
I am searching for research supporting AA 12-step meetings during college years for those diagnosed with substance use disorders.
I am currently writing amendments on my doctorate thesis which investigates the personal life experience of drug users in recovery utilising Interpretative phenomenological analysis and I am looking for empirical data that I could compare/contrast my outcome to.
I am interested in collaborating with other clinicians/ researchers regarding creative / new / effective (either / or) ACT techniques (metaphors, breathing, exercises, rituals, etc) for application in clinical practice with patients with Chronic Pain.
I am a doctoral student replicating Laux et al.'s (2017) research (with some differences) that appeared in the ACA’s Journal of Addiction and Offender Counseling, October 2017, volume 38. That journal article is entitled, "Substance Use Assessment Instruments: 13 Years Later." The Laux et al.'s (2017) research extended Juhnke et.al's (2003) study, entitled, "Assessment Instruments used by Addictions Counselors, also published in the ACA’s Journal of Addiction and Offender Counseling.

What should musicians’ health education sound like? The floor is yours!
Workshops funded by Realab and the IMR
Wednesday, 19 September OR Monday, 24 September 2018 | 11.30 AM, Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM), Manchester, UK
Tuesday, 25 September OR Saturday, 29 September 2018 | 11.30 AM
Institute of Musical Research, Senate House, London, UK
The physical and psychological demands of the training and practice that musicians must achieve to perform to a high standard can produce deleterious effects on their health and wellbeing. However, music conservatoires still endorse practices that are informed by tradition more than evidence, while health literacy and critical thinking are still not embedded in music students’ core training. Finally, there are no guidelines or regulations regarding what conservatoires should provide in terms of health education.
We want to address that AND we need your help!
We invite psychologists (both researchers and practitioners, from any specialism and not restricted to those who work with musicians) to join us in this discussion! We have prepared comprehensive lists of topics and we shall discuss their relevance and priority in small groups. Additionally, we will brainstorm ideas about what other topics might be needed as part of the conservatoires’ curricula.
Places are free, but limited. While we prioritise psychologists (due to the nature of our task and topic focus), we also welcome:
- Health professionals working with musicians
- Philosophers (yes, yes! We’d also like to discuss cognitive biases and logical fallacies!)
- Cognitive scientists
- Specialists in music education
- PhD students in any of the topics above
Please note the same workshop will be held four times. Please choose only one and register your interest here: https://mmu.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/musicians-health-education-workshop-sept-2018
For any queries, please contact the organisers: Raluca Matei, AHRC-funded PhD student in music psychology: email@example.com | +44 757 061 2760 OR

Current research shows that CBT is very useful in treating clients with depression and/or anxiety. I believe that CBT would be equally successful in the treatment of addictions outside of drug and alcohol, such as gambling, over eating and especially pornography/sex. I have been assigned a research project where I have to demonstrate that CBT is not a good fit for addiction counseling. So, odd as it may sound, I would certainly appreciate some advice or recommended sources as to why CBT would not work with this type of counseling.
