Description

Through initiating metacognition, participants will gain the capacity to broaden critical thinking skills and creative abilities in reexamining how we approach the beloved alcoholics/addicts and their families to achieve a goal of more successfully fostering lasting sobriety, both emotional and chemical. We will describe research on achieving lasting change and how this challenges some of our long-held beliefs and practices and discuss why the traditional approach to the families of individuals in treatment must change before we can adequately contend with the chronic nature of this disease and the high rates of relapse.

Target Audience
  • Counselors
  • Addiction Counselors
  • Psychologists
  • Social Workers
  • Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists
Educational Goal

The educational goal of this presentation is to broaden participants’ critical thinking skills and creative abilities when examining how to approach working with clients and families struggling with substance use and addiction

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss current research data on “long lasting change” and describe one way it challenges how the family of individuals in treatment are traditionally approached.

  • Define Structured Family Recovery® and describe how a family team is transformed into a recovery team.

  • Examine language and other complexities that influence clients and their families.

  • Define boundaries, belonging, and choice and discuss one way each can impact clients.
