IC&RC’s First-Ever Training Conference

A Principled Practice:
Ethics in Addiction Treatment and Prevention

The First Ever Professional Training Conference
Produced by IC&RC
The World Leader in Addiction-Related Credentialing

Saturday, October 29, 2011, 8am-12pm

Rosen Centre Hotel and Orange County Convention Center
Orlando, Florida

Keynote Address
“Neuroscience, Morality and Addiction”
by
Stephen J. Morse, J.D., Ph.D.

Stephen J. Morse, J.D., Ph.D.

Stephen J. Morse, J.D., Ph.D. is Ferdinand Wakeman Hubbell Professor of Law, Professor of Psychology and Law in Psychiatry, and Associate Director of the Center for Neuroscience and Society at the University of Pennsylvania. His work emphasizes individual responsibility and the relation of the behavioral sciences and neurosciences to responsibility and social control.

His presentation will consider the moral and legal responsibility of addicts for their addiction, including recovery, and for other behaviors related to their addictions. The central argument is that seeking and using substances is voluntary action and thus may be fairly assessed morally and legally, even if these actions are the signs of a disease.

Advances in addiction neuroscience and other addiction sciences do not conclusively demonstrate that most addicts are not responsible for their addictions and related behaviors. Nonetheless, criminalization of the behaviors that constitute addiction is not wise social policy, and advances in the addiction sciences may guide sensible reforms.

Sessions on Friday, October 28th will include ethics in:

  • Prevention
  • Criminal Justice
  • Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
  • Clinical Supervision

Half-day workshop on Saturday, October 29th will cover “Culturally Complex Ethical Challenges” with Stephanie Murtaugh, MA, MBA, LPC, CAC, CCS, CCJP, CCDP Diplomate.

Attendees are also invited to IC&RC’s 30th Anniversary Celebration Reception on Thursday, October 27, 2011 at 6pm.
