Course Overview

By Anthony Nave, LCSW

Substance Use Disorders and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are common co-morbid disorders. Often, the recovery process for each can feel daunting or complicated. With more literature and research describing addiction as an attachment disorder, and PTSD as a healing process engaged with the safety of others, Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) is a theory and practical working model that can help professionals work with clients struggling with these disorders. This course will discuss how to integrate an IPNB perspective with your current skill set to help clients navigate addiction and trauma recovery.

1 CE credit available

This complimentary continuing education presentation is brought to you by Mountainside Treatment Center. 


This in-depth presentation will:

• Define IPNB

• Summarize addiction as a disease model

• Summarize how PTSD physically forms and impacts the brain

• Summarize how healing from addiction and PTSD is bottom-up-process in the brain

• Establish the stages of Trauma Recovery, through Dr. Judith Herman’s Trauma Recovery Model
