(Newswire.net — September 9, 2014) Costa Mesa, CA — Evan Miller, Ph.D., RAS, is the founder of Akua Mind & Body, a progressive center for treating drug and alcohol addiction located in Costa Mesa, will be a featured speaker at the 27th Annual Cape Cod Symposium on Addictive Disorders to be held in Hyannis Massachusetts on September 11 to 14, 2014. Dr. Miller’s topic will be “Personality Structure and Addiction: A Psychodynamic Understanding.”


As seen at http://www.ccsad.com/agenda/, Dr. Miller will discuss affective response and the psychodynamic approach to case conceptualization in drug and alcohol treatment. Dr. Miller’s primary focus will be on defensive structure and pattern recognition – two tools that can be used to conceptualize these cases and usher in a deeper understanding of both conscious and unconscious client motivations.

Dr. Miller’s speech comes on the heels of a highly acclaimed presentation at the August National Conference on Addiction Disorder Behavioral Healthcare Leadership Summit, held August 8 to 11 in St. Louis and described at http://www.addictionpro.com/ncad-conference/2014-speakers. In that presentation Dr. Miller drew from his extensive background in clinical program development and evidence-based treatment initiatives to describe effective treatment methods for addiction programs.
