About the Ethics Salon:

DSM-5 (a) avoids defining addiction (referring only to
the generic “Substance Use Disorders”), (b) includes the
following degrees of such disorders — mild, moderate, and
severe, (c) expands the “addiction” umbrella for the first time
to include non-substance (behavioral) addictions, beginning
with gambling, (d) suggests the likelihood that other such
addictions will soon be added (e.g., Internet, videos, sex,
eating/obesity), (e) fields claims from important psychiatric
figures that this document is not sufficiently rooted in
neuroscience. Psychologists must be prepared for a new
— but shifting — concept of addiction, so as to be true
to psychological theory and evidence-based techniques,
responsive to the range of clinical addictive problems clients
may present, and make use of the soundest scientific
concepts. Stanton Peele’s workshop will address these

Focused on the definitions of self care, burnout and most importantly on strategies for well being and resilience in the context of being a clinician.
