European Master of Drug and Alcohol Studies

In cooperation with Avogardo University Centre for Alcohol and Drug Research offers the master study: European Master of Drug and Alcohol Studies.

Ro på - arbejdsbog til borgere med antisocial personlighedsforstyrrelse og misbrug

Som varslet i CRFs sidste nyhedsbrev er her
’Ro på-arbejdsbogen, som er designet og afprøvet som et værktøj i behandlingen af mennesker med sammenfaldende misbrug og antisocial personlighedsforstyrrelse. Vores ønske med bogen er, at den bliver et værktøj til at hjælpe mennesker, som kommer i problemer den ene gang efter den anden, på grund af konflikter, kriminalitet, eller fordi de svigter sig selv, og har lært ikke at holde aftaler, ikke at tage ansvar, og ikke at varetage deres forpligtelser.

Arbejdsbogen er udviklet til anvendelse i samarbejde mellem en behandler og en borger, eller til en borger. Den er afprøvet i misbrugsbehandling, men har også været anvendt i fængsler og arrester, hvor nogle har søgt at tilpasse programmet til gruppebehandling. 

Mange hilsner

Morten Hesse og Birgitte Thylstrup
