Health and Wellness: Creating Innovative Interventions for Tobacco Cessation
The 20-Hour multi-media home study program includes four instructional DVDs, two educational textbooks, and accompanying comprehensive materials - all designed to teach the unique skills of tobacco dependency treatment and relapse prevention.
Education and Skills Development
Different people use tobacco for different reasons, and are addicted at different levels. Learn to assess and evaluate dependency factors and lifestyle patterns, in order to create more effective treatment plans and relapse prevention strategies.
Relapse Prevention Strategies
They say most smokers try to quit at least 8 or 9 times before they finally succeed. If you are prepared to offer relapse prevention counseling, you can increase the efficacy of your services. Increased success means healthier clients, greater levels of referral and increased job satisfaction.
This course will teach the skills necessary to assess relapse potential and help clients finally succeed - even following relapse.
Treating Tobacco Dependency
When you treat tobacco dependency, you are also treating depression, anger, and social behaviors. People who smoke relate to their cigarettes better than to other people; they use their cigarettes to control social situations. Smokers who get angry will automatically reach for the pack, depressed smokers will simply light up rather than take healthy actions.
Treatment of tobacco dependency requires the development of counseling strategies that can equip clients to face life tobacco free - and also develop a new sense of identity. Practical strategies for addressing adolescent tobacco dependency, smokeless tobacco dependency, and the unique needs of special populations are included in this course.
