This unit explores lived and living experiences of addiction and recovery. You will consider the ways in which substance and behavioural addictions can impact individuals, families and communities, and the impact of dominant discourses and frameworks. Approaches to holistic care and wellbeing will be considered alongside insights into the intersect between addiction and co-occurring mental ill-health. Developing your skills in reflective and trauma informed practices will equip you with an understanding of how to support people across diverse contexts and potential next steps when more intensive interventions are required.
