Wickenburg, AZ (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
The Meadows trauma and addiction treatment center is sponsoring two lunches and lectures with Meadows’ Senior Fellow, Jerry Boriskin, PhD, CAS, in Englewood, Colo. at Maggiano’s Little Italy on Thursday, Nov. 7, 2013, from 11:00 am.-2:00 p.m. and in Bellevue, Wash., at Maggiano’s Little Italy on Friday, Nov. 8, 2013, from 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
Dr. Boriskin will present “Beyond Evidenced-Based: Virtuosity in the Treatment of Trauma and Addiction.” This brief workshop will review the necessary foundations for understanding the scope and nature of PTSD as it co-occurs with addiction. In addition, attendees will be introduced to a multi-dimensional model that can assist in managing the volatile and complex challenges of treating veterans and civilians who struggle with their recovery. He is the author of "PTSD and Addiction: A Practical Guide for Clinicians and Counselors" and co-authored "At Wit’s End: What Families Need to Know When a Loved One is Diagnosed with Addiction and Mental Illness."
Dr. Boriskin is a licensed psychologist, addiction specialist, author, lecturer, and clinician with expertise in trauma, PTSD, and addictive disorders. He was a pioneer in extending the continuum of care and developed two extended residential treatment programs for co-occurring disorders. A passionate advocate for integrated treatment, he possessed a vision that predated the ongoing movement toward specialized and integrated treatment for co-occurring disorders, particularly those involving trauma.
