Event Details

Translating current Craving Research into clinical practice

Speaker: Prof. Marc Auriacombe

Craving has a central role in substance dependence being included in both ICD11 and DSM V diagnostic criteria and is thought to be a major contributor to relapse. Yet craving remains poorly defined, the assessment of craving in research varies substantially and formal assessment in the clinical setting is rare.

Please join Professor Marc Auriacombe as he considers the clinical relevance of the latest research on person and substance related predictors of craving in substance use, the importance of management of craving and developments in treatment strategies. Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones will Chair the meeting and invite audience participation.

Prof. Marc Auriacombe is a Professor of Psychiatry and Addiction medicine at the Medical School of the University of Bordeaux, France and an Adjunct Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA. He is the director of the addiction research team at CNRS USR 3413 Sanpsy and medical director of the Addiction Treatment Services of the Charles Perrens Hospital in Bordeaux, France. He is the principal senior investigator of an integrated addiction research program funded by French national and European funds, focusing on commonalities between substance and non-substance addictions.
