November 15, 2017 Session: James Harris, PhD

Topic: Socratic Questioning for Assessment of Addiction: 

The Art of Socratic Questioning

Socrates was a philosopher whose mission in life was predicated on deep thinking.  In other words, thinking on a deeper level.  In addictions counseling, Socratic Questioning is a systematic method of questioning that encourages clients to contemplate, evaluate, and synthesize diverse sources of information (Overholser, 1988).  In this training, the clinician will be introduced to the basic concepts of Socratic Questioning and will be able to implement basic strategies to get clients to become critical thinkers about their addiction and road to recovery.
