(Kotor - Hotel „Cattaro“, 14 – 16 June 2019)

 

The European Center for Peace and Development UN University for Peace organizes this School with aim to direct the focus to forensic and gender characteristics of the abuse of psychoactive substances and addictions, as well as to bring together experts from various fields - physicians, social workers, special pedagogues, psychologists, lawyers, and other professionals, which will enable a more extensive exchange of experience as well as provide the latest knowledge, practical and scientific achievements in the area of prevention, treatment and rehabilitation from addictive diseases.

Director of the School is Prof. Dr. Slavica Đukić Dejanović, Minister in the Government of the Republic of Serbia and ECPD UN University for Peace professor. Co-directors are Prof. Dr. Zoran Zoričić, Clinical Center Zagreb, President of the Croatian Society for Alcoholism and Other Addictions and Prof. Dr. Petar Nastasić, ECPD UN University for Peace professor.

Contemporary addictions are no longer manifested only as the risky use of alcohol and other psychoactive substances. In the era of postmodernism, they have reached epidemiological rates in the so-called non-chemical addictions (pathological gambling, dependence on video games, the Internet and social networks, shopping ...). Unfortunately, this change has not lead to a reduction in the the so-called chemical addictions. Research shows that not only are some of them increasing in number but an increase in mortality associated with addictions is registered. Likewise, social and psychological consequences to family members, social status of families, especially children are more pronounced. In relation to addictive diseases, there is significant growth of social deviation, domestic violence, general crime, prostitution, and human trafficking.

In this way, contemporary addictions represent globally the largest problem from the aspects of prevention, treatment and rehabilitation. Addictions to psychoactive substances, but non-chemical dependence, are primarily complex diseases of the central nervous system, but with specific behavioural characteristics. Therefore, these are behavioural disorders. Namely, all addictions have the characteristics of learned behaviour. However, their emergence, this process of emotional and social learning has a very complex neurobiochemical substrate. The disturbed, so-called addictive behavior is mostly manifested through disturbed relationships with the family and with the social environment, so it is necessary to perceive and treat it, being mindful of the particularities of the ecosystem networks in which therapeutic procedures are planned and implemented. The work of the School will especially emphasize and elaborate a new paradigm for the recovery of addiction diseases, not just diagnostics and medical treatment.
