About this course

This Understanding Addiction course in Tunbridge Wells forms part of a series of sessions exploring mental health. Learn how mental health conditions manifest and what the symptoms look like, what might be the causes and learn some practical ways to manage some of the symptoms to help you or those around you cope better on a daily basis. This course focuses particularly on understanding and managing addiction - what can cause addiction, different types and levels and some tips to manage it with some practical coping skills.

By the end of the day students should be able to:
1) state the symptoms and effects of addiction
2) understand the diagnosis of addiction
3) recognise the factors that contribute towards addiction
4) compare and evaluate some of the key treatments for addiction

This course is educational rather than therapeutic. General broad ideas will be shared and discussed amongst the group. There could be some sharing of personal experiences. This course is not a replacement for personal therapy and this element will be carefully managed by the tutor.

How will I be taught?

The course will consist of a mixture of tutor input, group activities and discussion. The emphasis will be on participation and sharing of ideas. If you have a disability and think it may affect your learning in the classroom, or using any of our other services, please speak to us in confidence as soon as possible. We will discuss options with you and do our best to provide the support you would like.

What do I need to bring with me?

Pen and paper for notes might be useful but we advise students not to purchase equipment, books or materials until after the first session of the course unless otherwise stated.
