Substance use has been characterized as a moral failing, a lack of will, or the result of bad genes. None of this is true, and thus they led to interventions that largely failed to treat addictions. Humans have evolved over hundreds of thousands of years to survive. Addiction is a consequence of a biology that no longer matches our modern cultural landscapes. This webinar will cover several the following topics: the evolutionary theory undergirding addictions; the biological, including neuropsychological, responses to perceived threat; the role of perceived threat in addictions; and some powerful evolutionarily and neuropsychologically-informed interventions to treat addictions.

Humans have evolved over hundreds of thousands of years to survive. Addiction is a consequence of a biology that no longer matches our modern cultural landscapes. This webinar will cover several the following topics: the evolutionary theory undergirding addictions; the biological, including neuropsychological, responses to perceived threat; the role of perceived threat in addictions; and some powerful evolutionarily and neuropsychologically-informed interventions to treat addictions.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this workshop, the learner will be able to:

1. Describe the mismatch of the evolutionary-based function of perception of patterns of threat by the brain and the perception of threat in complex modern culture.
2. Explain the neurobiological cascade of responses to perceived patterns of threat in the environment.
3. Discuss the role of perceived patterns of threat in the development and maintenance of addictions
4. Use evolutionary and neuropsychologically-informed interventions to address addictions
