CEU Course Description
Research in the area of illicit substance use remains preoccupied with describing and analyzing the risks of people who use drugs (PWUD), however, more recently there has been a drive to use a strengths-based or resilience approach as an alternative to investigating drug use. This CEU course analyzes how the concept of resilience is defined, operationalized, and applied in substance use research.
