Over the past few decades great advances have been made towards understanding the psychology of substance use disorders (SUDs) and addictions. This five-part series is designed to provide psychologists and psychology students with cutting-edge information about SUDs and addictive behaviors.










This series is a collaboration with the American Psychological Association (APA) Office of Continuing Education in Psychology, the APA Science Directorate, the APA Center for Learning and Career Development, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, and the Society of Addiction Psychology (Division 50 of APA).

The five two-hour programs focus on: (1) an overview of substance use disorders and addictions; (2) screening, brief intervention, and referral for treatment (SBIRT); (3) understanding the complexities of the SUDs and addictions; (4) evidence-based clinical guidelines for addressing SUDs and addictions, and; (5) the treatment of SUDs and addictions in “the real world.”
