By Robert Ackerman, PhD
Develop an appreciation for gender differences in the treatment and recovery from alcohol and drug addiction and other problems in e-Summit's Addiction Course with Dr. Ackerman. Investigate how dysfunctional families effect gender development and, in turn, how this development effects personal change for females and males. Dr. Robert Ackerman's approach is not to treat women and men from dysfunctional families or addicted individuals as victims, but rather as survivors who have strengths as a result of the adverse conditions they endured. This is an intermediate course intended for practicing clinicians.
