Society has lost control. Many in the culture are living in a downward spiral of a new addiction, chasing money, power, success and a wilder, faster pace of life. What is the impact on our understanding and treatment of the addicted couple and family who must live and work in a culture that is out of control? Dr. Stephanie Brown will present her new work on American culture’s addiction to FAST, and outline how all couples therapy must now include an understanding of addiction.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the out of control, addicted culture.
  2. Describe the out of control, addicted couple and the process of recovery.
  3. Describe the immature, developmental arrest that characterizes the addicted person, the couple and family, and the culture.
  4. Explain the implications for the processes of intervention and treatment when the culture and the couple are as unhealthy and out of control as the addicted person.
  5. Apply family recovery knowledge and principles to the addicted culture.
