2016 Summer School of Addiction Studies
Request for Course Proposal
The Summer School of Addiction Studies (SSAS) is a weeklong professional development experience designed to provide comprehensive continuing education in the area of addictions.
For decades, the
Historic Summer School
has been the core educational program at the Center of Alcohol Studies. Over the years, students have attended the school from each of the 50 states, the 12 Canadian provinces, and over 40 other countries. The student body continues to be characterized by a broad geographic distribution and a wide range of backgrounds, experience, and interests. This diversity makes the informal interaction among the members of each year’s student body a unique and valued experience. Today, the alumni are found in large numbers within community-based organizations, health centers, alcohol and drug treatment facilities, clinics, hospitals, medical schools, and the armed forces.
The curriculum committee is currently requesting courses for the 2016 Summer School of Addiction Studies. Courses that are considered should provide learning opportunities for licensed service providers, supervisors, students, and educators from a wide variety of settings including, but not limited to, Community Based Organizations, Health Centers, Alcohol and Drug Treatment Facilities, Clinics, Hospitals, Medical Schools, Other Professional Schools, and the Armed Forces.
Courses considered should include content for nine hours of direct instruction (approximately two hours per day for five days) and three hours of “offsite” assignments. Successful applications will include up to date research supported approaches. Innovative practices and cutting edge techniques will be given priority.
Each year, in addition to core classes, the Center of Alcohol Studies is committed to advancing in a particular thematic area. This year’s theme for SSAS is still under discussion. We want each SSAS to be interesting and informative we encourage creative applications.
