The model upon which both of his new books are based, the "Recovery Resilience Program", sets about to provide crucial coping and self-regulation skills that contribute to building trustworthy "recovery resilience." What may be missing for many such loved ones is a solid, foundational grounding in the latest scientific information, much of it based on innovations in brain-scan technology, trauma studies, and attachment theory (the bulk of it in this current century), addressing the "brain of addiction."
There will be provided two related “deep dives” into understanding addiction’s impact on the brain and body. The goal throughout is to aid the healthcare provider in deepening loved ones’ understanding of, and empathy for, those in early recovery, including in and around potential slips and relapses. Practical applications of self-regulation – both for individuals in recovery and their loved ones – will not only be detailed, but will be put into action, by means of multiple, hands-on exercises during the webinar. All such tools will be directed toward one, primary goal: increased resilience for individuals in recovery, as enhanced by active and effective contributions from loved ones.
