In this course we review a common addiction that lots of people suffer from, many of whom don’t even realise that they’re hooked.
During this course, you will follow the story of Jess, Shaz and Indi, three students who are struggling with this addiction. In each section, we take you through a further stage of their shared experience, and then ask you questions. In order to answer these questions, you will have research to do. In each case we have provided links to a range of articles and websites, which are accessed using the “Materials” tab. You will see this tab above the scenario details and also above the assessment questions.
By the end of this course you will be able to:
- Suggest possible signs, symptoms and causes of addiction experienced by their mentees
- Use evidence based practice and addiction science to inform their mentoring programmes
- Combine new learning with existing mentoring practice to support addiction recovery
