Researching Addiction: Theories, Methods, and Skills
21 - 23 November 2019
CPD Certificate (13 hours)
Broadly defined, addiction refers to not having control over doing or using something to the point where it becomes harmful. Most commonly, addiction is associated with drug use, alcohol, nicotine, and gambling, but it’s also possible to be addicted to work, shopping, internet, and your own mobile phone.
Despite the heavy financial and human capital toll on individuals with addictive disorders and society at large, significant gaps exist in our understanding of factors influencing drug use trajectories and in the development of effective prevention and treatment interventions.
Today Malta has the potential to develop an innovative, cutting-edge research agenda in addictions and you are invited to participate in a unique training program on researching addiction conducted by the leading experts in the field, including two key invited speakers from Yale University (USA). The program includes two workshops and hands-on experience in designing a high-quality research project proposal. The first workshop will take place on between 21 and 23 November.
