Weekly Assignment: 60 pts
In this assignment, each student will submit a PowerPoint or Prezi presentation of their research proposal with supporting literature (including peer reviewed research), and a hypothetical client scenario.
At least two slides should be dedicated to summarizing the studentâ€™s field work, including observations of the support group meeting attended, and responses obtained from the substance abuse counselor interview. The student will present their slide deck during an on-campus class meeting, or webinar for a virtual class meeting. (Alternatively, the student will submit the Power Point presentation to the course professor with speaker notes, such that it is presentation ready).
Abstinence Experience Reflection
After your 4-5 weeks of abstinence (begun in Module 2), write a reflection paper about your experiences, include emotional responses, episodes of craving, relapse, and determination. Share how the experiences may inform your future clinical work. Your paper should be 2 â€“ 3 pages in length.
