Experiential Training

The Concept of Experiential Training as it Related to Addiction Counseling

There is nothing like learning on the job and that is exactly the concept when you are talking about experiential training. The whole premise of experiential training is really around learning through experiences. Think about school and when you went through all of your studies. Even in a work setting where you go through pieces of training. You will learn a lot, yes, but it is not until you are on the job that you begin to learn that much more.

 

When you are talking about addiction counseling, the concept of experiential training is going to hit home. Nearly 40% of adults, according to the American Addiction Centers organization, suffer from an illicit drug use disorder. To help these adults, you need the experience. You need to see how different folks react to different counseling methods, and that comes with time on the job.
