Behavioral/Process Addictions

Created by the International Association for Addictions and Offender Counselors (IAAOC) - Process Addictions Committee
This course syllabus is meant to serve as a template for counselor educators to consider how to teach on the topic of behavioral/process addictions. It should be noted that this syllabus template has not been reviewed by an institution of higher learning and is primarily set forth as an example for content purposes only. Each university will have different syllabus requirements, and it is necessary to investigate those further.
