For this Discussion, you should select a behavioral addiction discussed in Chapter 5 of your text. Please go to the Walden Library and locate two journal articles from the last 5 years that are associated with the behavioral addiction you selected. You will use these articles and your text as supporting resources for this Discussion.
Post by Day 4 a brief description of the behavioral addiction you selected, including basic criteria and prevalence of the addiction, as well as cultural influences and considerations. Then, describe one commonly used treatment protocol and one significant treatment challenge for this addiction. Lastly, identify how you could integrate a strength-based perspective in your work with this addiction.
Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources as well as the articles you selected from the Walden Library.
