About the Workshop

This presentation will give participants an overview on the way a typical intervention is planned and carried out. Additionally, I will address the major fears and objections families have in considering an intervention and how these may be addressed. Finally, we will look at post-intervention work.


Learning Objectives:

  1. List the six categories of objections and highlight the one that is most important for the interventionist to address.
  2. Identify the most common myth on intervention/recovery and discuss why it is so dangerous.
  3. Discuss the difference between influence and leverage in intervention.
  4. Identify and discuss 2 ethical concerns in intervention.
