~ 6 CEH for Addiction Professionals
Unresolved traumatic experience is a contributing factor to the addict’s inability to maintain sobriety even when there is a commitment not to use. Post-traumatic stress and triggers create high risk situations that, without management or resolve, will perpetuate urges to escape. This faith-based trauma-informed training will equip treatment providers and recovery workers with tools to help survivor’s access the strength to manage the urges to use AOD while finding help for unresolved post-traumatic experience.
Goals and Objectives: To access skills to identify…
client’s need for trauma-informed care within the delivery of services
client’s self-awareness of any deeper unresolved issues and unmet needs that perpetuate addiction and self-harming behavior
client’s strengths to manage the thoughts, feelings, and urges that put them at risk for relapse
client strength to stay present in relationship
helping clients to access their strengths and authentic identity to create healthy boundaries, core values and lifestyle changes
