The Learning Influence of AIDiction

The Learning Influence of AIDiction
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) maintains strong empirical and scientific evidence of efficacy for treatment of aIDiction. CBT is a form of psychotherapeutic treatment that looks at how the client’s thoughts impact his or her feelings and behaviors. While the etiology of aIDictions is often regarded as a biological process, it can also be understood as a learned behavior from a CBT perspective. Using the concepts of classical conditioning, operant conditioning and Bandura’s Social Learning Theory, discuss the development of a substance related disorder. Then discuss why it is beneficial for aIDictions counselors to conceptualize the client in this manner. How can this perspective influence possible treatment recommendations? You are to use at least two current (not more than 5 years old) peer reviewed journal articles in support of your project.
