6hr Ethics for the Recovery Workforce

Virtual Event

The start of a new decade has brought on a global pandemic, social duress and familial distress. Thus far, we have seen increased alcohol and other drug use, spikes in drug overdose, increased mental health challenges, economic fragility, increasingly limited access to professional services as well as a spike in suicidal ideation. The need for Recovery and related supports are rapidly increasing. The implementation of the Peer Recovery Workforce is rapidly increasing. It is imperative that ethics and ethical processes are front and center in order to bolster recovery and maximize its outcomes.


Event Series 6hr Infinite Pathways of Recovery

6hr Infinite Pathways of Recovery

Virtual Event

With social media and prime time shows highlighting recovery as a possibility, recovery is slowly becoming a household word. Yet the most commonly championed path of going to “meetings” continues to be frequently suggested and recommended as a single pathway for individuals to get everything they need for their recovery. It can absolutely be a wonderful path. Unfortunately though, it doesn’t work for everyone and a single pathway doesn’t always meet the full scope of individual needs.

So where else do we go? How else can we identify and obtain the various types of support needed to sustain and grow our recovery? There is no one pathway or one way to recover. The human brain has the capacity to continuously create new neural pathways, so we might actually say that there are as many paths as there are decisions. People seeking recovery are incredibly resilient, often finding many of the strengths, skills and abilities they need to recover within themselves. How do we help ourselves and each other discover our individual needs and the infinite pathways to meet them? * Virtual Training via Zoom. Computer and internet connection required.

In this workshop, participants will:

· Identify the specific components that encompass individuals’ needs;

· Understand how culture can impact individuals’ recovery pathways;

· Discover where existing pathways meet individuals’ needs, or leave gaps;

· Explore how to cultivate and design personal pathways for self and others;

· Explore the stages of recovery in order to identify potential pathways; and

· Practice implementing learned concepts in the creation of infinite pathways of recovery.

This training provides 6 CEUs.
