FSOS3222W: Our Addicted World: Going Beyond the Individual in Looking at the Addiction

3 CreditsEnvironmentWriting Intensive

This course will explore addiction and how we, as members of a family and community can better understand the complexity of the systems that simultaneously create environments that foster addiction and assist individuals in their quest to heal from addiction. We will explore our personal beliefs and experiences with addiction, often challenging the dominant discourses that inform who gets blamed and who gets helped when dealing with addiction. We will do this by reading, discussing and writing about three different types of addiction that are currently being discussed by families, communities and policymakers: opiate addiction, screen addiction and gambling.
