Course Materials and Forms
Spirituality and Addictions Treatment

Online Training (45 minutes)
CEU: 1

Research has indicated that among individual protective factors is religiosity, or the participation in religious activities and the personal attitudes a person may have toward religious or spiritual practices. Thus utilizing one’s spirituality to cope with life issues appears to correlate with experiencing benefits to their health and well-being. As a source of comfort and relief from stress, spirituality - regardless of religious (or non-religious) affiliation - serves as an integral part of many recovery-from-addiction types of programs. Expanding the concept of spirituality to include personal values clarification, choices and responsibilities, treatment programs can open discussion on a variety of topics, such as individual belief systems, virtues, prayer, meditation, surrendering one’s personal will to a higher power (as the person understands this term), forgiveness, and discerning one’s purpose in life.

Learning Objectives:
- To gain knowledge about the role of spirituality in the life of a recovering person and how it can positively impact his/her life
- To define and be able to identify various spiritual coping modes and to understand how each may affect the recovery process.
- To become familiar with the 12 Steps Program, in general, and to recognize the issues an individual in recovery may face with regard to spiritual surrender (Steps 2 and 3), as well as, to understand how spiritual surrender serves as an integral step within the process of recovery

This session provides both a broad view of women and problem gambling, as well as, several specific looks at individual stories of recovery, and methods to help recovering women gamblers. The goal of this presentation is to both broaden the understanding of the disorder of compulsive gambling and to be able to communicate more effectively with women who are affected, directly or indirectly by problem gambling.

Learning Objectives:
- To identify the common - and several uncommon - characteristics of female gamblers
- To understand more clearly gender-specific issues associated with female escape gamblers, such as experiences of abuse, care-giving demands, and emotional issues with regard to autonomy and rebellion
