Contact us at [email protected]
***THIS TRAINING HAS BEEN POSTPONED AND WILL BE UPDATED SOON***
Many of our clients have worked to muster the courage, or the will, to get sober. These are important steps. But the real issue with addiction isn’t getting sober, it’s staying sober, and staying sober requires different skills. The old patterns don’t disappear. They have been hard-wired into the brain like ruts on an old dirt road. The people, places, things, and attitudes and shortcomings that made it hard to get sober will still be there ready to help them slide right back into those old ruts. In order to stay sober, clients must create new heathy patterns and work to get those patterns hard-wired into their brains.
Experiential techniques and structures rooted in psychodrama, sociodrama, and sociometry cut through rationalization, denial, justification and other defenses that can lead to backsliding and relapse.
This workshop offers practical and engaging exercises you can use with your clients in the Action and Maintenance stages of change. You will learn interactive and experiential structures to help clients identify obstacles to staying sober, resources to help them maintain sobriety and experiential techniques to help them practice making healthy choices.
- Participants will learn the importance of utilizing action-based techniques that will assist clients as they navigate the action and maintenance stages of change.
- Participants will learn to access resources that support their clients' efforts to understand the challenges of the action and maintenance stages and techniques that will help clients sustain their sobriety.
- Participants must reside in Region 3 (DC, DE, MD, PA, VA, WV)
- Participants must have access to a camera, that must remain on for the entire webinar
- Participants must remain unmuted
