Social Workers and Historical Knowledge of AddictionsThe historical perspective of addiction is often not
considered when providing treatment. For this discussion:
- Briefly provide a historical overview of the way addiction
has been approached in the past.
- How do you think a therapist might best use this
historical perspective to serve the needs of clients presenting with addictive
and compulsive behavior?
- What do you see as a key factor or reason to impart such
knowledge of history?
