Considerations in the Development of a Research to Practice Curriculum for Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselors
Yalisove, Daniel L.
Journal of Teaching in the Addictions, v3 n2 p77-93 2004
Most current substance abuse counselor certification education curricula do not include a systematic introduction to alcohol and substance abuse research. I believe that such an introduction would enhance counselor cooperation in research to practice efforts that are currently underway. In this paper I give a brief history of alcoholism and substance abuse counseling, and then review the education requirements for the substance abuse counseling credential, counselor attitudes toward research, the effect of education on acceptance of research-based interventions, and suggest elements for a curriculum that introduces counselors to research on alcoholism and substance abuse that comprise a course I teach at John Jay College of Criminal Justice as part of the substance abuse counseling curriculum.
