The Abstinence Exercise: Impact on Empathy for Clients with Addictive Disorders
American Counseling Association Annual Conference
San Francisco, CA.
“Why can’t they just quit!?” Many individuals, including counselors-in-training, have difficulty experiencing empathy for clients struggling with addiction. The purpose of this poster session is to discuss the use of an abstinence exercise in counselor education addictions courses and the present data regarding the impact of such an exercise on student counselor empathy for people with addictive disorders.
