The Minnesota Coalition for Death Education and Support (MCDES) has a new program on May 4, 2018: “Why & How We Get Hooked & What We Can Do About It: The Intersection of Addiction & Grief.”
Psychology Professor Serena King introduces participants to the field of addiction science and discusses the principles behind addiction and what makes some individuals more likely to become hooked on food, drugs, gambling and other “pleasures.”
Why are addictions considered a factor when assessing an individual’s risk for complicated grieving? How have addiction researchers, scientists and therapists helped grieving individuals and their families make behavior changes through methods of bio-psychosocial interventions?
