Be Engaging: The Architecture of Addiction Education
Professional training with CE credits
Talking about addiction and the addicted brain are among the most challenging of tasks for the helping professional, particularly the addictions counselor and educator.
Educating addicts of all kinds – as well as their families – about the disease of addiction and how it affects their bodies, minds, spirits and relationships is a task that demands information and creativity to deliver. The challenge is expanded because “addiction” covers a wide variety of experiences
In this training, you will have the opportunity to learn how to “show and tell” the basics of the addiction process, including for both addicted person and the family where addiction is present in a way that is both informing and engaging. Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, will demonstrate how family sculpture, props, active storytelling and the practice of sociometry and sociometric warm up enhances the engagement of teens, adults and families.
In this training, you will learn:
