CBT THERAPY AND ALCOHOL:   Two of the courses in this category (5H and 4J) are designed as professional training manuals for assessment and CBT-oriented treatment of families, couples, and groups in which misuse of alcohol and other substances, poor anger management, domestic violence, interpersonal conflict, and faulty communication are issues. 


FAMILIES AND HIV:  Course 2H focuses upon the unique treatment issues involved in working with an adolescent with HIV and his family, and/or a parent or caretaker who is afflicted with HIV or AIDS with children in the household.  Domestic violence and abuse within the family are addressed with different approaches if the adolescent is the perpetrator vs. the adolescent as the victim of abuse.


WAR ZONE VETERANS AND FAMILY:    Two of the courses (5K and 5L) are training manuals for CBT-oriented treatment of Veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan War Zones, and their families.  In addition to anxiety, depression, anger management issues and substance use issues, Middle East Military Veterans are also dealing with the 'silent injuries' inflicted within the War Zone. The strain on spousal, family, and partner relationships, community re-integration, and workplace functioning is oftentimes severe., and can lead to Domestic Violence, Job Instability, and Legal Problems.


FLORIDA:   Domestic Violence Courses for Florida: Courses 5H and 4J are approved for Domestic Violence.  Courses 5K and 5L are approved for Domestic Violence AND for General CE Credit, and the courses are numbered separately.  When you enroll in 5K and/or 5L, please read the course description to be sure that you enroll in the right course to get the credit type you need.  The course title for Florida is preceded by [Florida]. 





These popular courses offer training in practical, CBT-oriented group, individual, couples, and family therapy, in which the focus is domestic violence, destructive problem drinking, HIV-AIDS, and recovery from the effects of trauma and silent injuries in the War Zones of Iraq and Afghanistan. The courses are appropriate for LMFTs, LPCs and other Counselors, Social Workers, CEAPs, and Addiction Professionals.  Courses 5H, 4J, 5K, and 5L are specifically designed as training manuals for professionals and may be acceptable in some states for supervisor training. 

These family therapy and domestic violence courses - described in more detail below - address the following populations:  




Course 5H  'Alcohol Problems in Intimate Relationships: Identification and Intervention' - A Domestic Violence- and AOD-Approved Intervention Course  

This course is written and published by NIAAA.  NIAAA acknowledges William F. Northey, Jr., Ph.D., of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) for "acting as the catalyst for this partnership, and for his wisdom in sharing with us the results of an AAMFT/CSAT survey that revealed 84%-88% of marriage and family therapists treat clients with primary or secondary alcohol problems." 


Domestic Violence, Infidelity, Marital Conflict, and Financial Instability Are Oftentimes Associated with PROBLEM DRINKING.  Of significance is the fact that problem drinking may occur in intimate relationships and families where one or both adult partners engage in abuse or misuse of alcohol which does not necessarily meet the criteria for a formal AOD diagnosis. 

Because marital conflict, domestic violence, and pending divorce are oftentimes the issues which bring a couple or family into counseling, the precipitating issue of PROBLEM DRINKING may not surface at the front end - or even until multiple sessions have taken place. Valuable time is oftentimes lost, or the issue overlooked entirely.

How to quickly recognize the fact that difficult-to-identify 'problem drinking' is playing a role in the aggression, discord, and trauma?  How to surface the issue in resistant clients? This course tells you how.

Quoting the authors:  "One of the clearest demonstrations of how alcohol use negatively impacts the family is the widely documented association between alcohol use and interpersonal violence. Family problems that are likely to co-occur with alcohol problems include ... 

  - Domestic violence 
  - Marital conflict  
  - Infidelity 
  - Jealousy 
  - Economic insecurity  
  - Divorce 
  - Fetal alcohol effect ... "  

Also quoting the authors:  "Drinking problems may negatively alter marital and family functioning, but there also is evidence that they can increase as a consequence of marital and family problems. Thus, drinking and family functioning are strongly and reciprocally linked. Not surprisingly, alcohol problems are common in couples that present for marital therapy, and marital problems are common in drinkers who present for alcohol treatment."  




 Course 4J - Anger Management for Substance Abuse and Mental Health Clients: A Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Manual.  

Course 4J'Anger Management for Substance Abuse and Mental Health Clients: A Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Manual'  is appropriate for Mental Health, AOD, and Dual Diagnosis treatment and counseling providers,  including any professional or case manager who works with Anger Management issues or Domestic Violence - either short-term or in extended care.  This structured approach is particularly appropriate in a group treatment environment. 

The course material is accessed free of charge through an internet link to the U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Center for Substance Abuse Treatment.  This is DHHS Publication No. 07-4008, originally printed in 2002, and republished in 2007.   

IMPORTANT NOTE:  There is a Participant Workbook which is for use by group members, which provides group members with a summary of the information presented in each session.  You may find and print the Participant Workbook (in English, Spanish, and Korean) at this web address: 


It's FREE,  and may also be freely reprinted for use by your clients.   



 After the War Zone - Coming Home 

Courses 5K and 5L are targeted to understanding the nuances of anger, PTSD, SUDs, and domestic violence occurring in War Zone Veterans, and how to effectively work with the veterans and their families. Learn what works . . . and what typically doesn't work.  NOTE:  Many of the interventions presented in this course are different than traditional approaches used with PTSD and SUDs.  Why?  Because the War Zone Veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan are different - physiologically, neurologically, and experientially. 



Course 2H.  Working with HIV-AIDS-positive adolescents and families.  In the second chapter, the authors discuss the indicators of abuse and domestic violence in HIV families, the assessment approach, some appropriate intervention techniques with HIV-affected families, and some special treatment planning issues when the HIV patient is the PERPETRATOR vs. when he or she is the VICTIM. Click the links at the bottom of the course description and read it for free.
