Considerations for Addressing Substance Use Dependence

Rising Strong: The Courage to Own Our Stories: Considerations for Addressing Substance Use Dependence"

Fee: $75; $90 after 7/26

9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Substance Use Dependence (SUD) and shame are highly correlated, and it is absolutely one of the challenges that individuals have when recovering from SUD. Living with shame can lead to a reoccurrence of use and the inability to build healthy and lasting relationships, both with self and others. Bringing Dr. Brené Brown’s exceptional work to life, The Rising Strong™ 3-hour introductory workshop is based on the research and resulting curriculum that focuses on personal growth, developing shame resilience skills, and embracing the courage that will transform the way a person lives, loves, parents, and leads. In this workshop, we will explore and learn specific tools to dig into the stories and the feelings that hold us back from living a fuller life. We will also identify new choices and practices that will lead to authenticity and whole-hearted living, and consider how to pass along this learning and practice with clients.

Participants will be able to:

  • Describe the working definition of “our story,” and how it relates to Substance Use Dependence
  • Discuss the power of self-talk and the impact it has on our stories
  • Apply concepts from Reckoning, the Rumble and the Revolution to our daily lives
  • Identify the correlation between SUD and shame
  • Identify what gets in the way of living authentic and whole-hearted lives
  • Have resources to continue living whole-hearted lives, and to pass along to client populations
