Event description

Description

This presentation will offer a relational frame for understanding the context of addiction and the work involved in recovering from and treating addictions. What is the nature of an addictive relationship with a substance or activity? What is the impact of that all-consuming relationship on other relationships, in particular with one’s self?

These questions will be addressed in the exploration of the process of addiction and recovery through a relational lens. We will examine “relationships” as the organizing principle and perspective for the work with individuals struggling with addiction. We will also examine the implication of this relational frame on the actual work of recovery from addiction in practical terms as well as the impact on the therapeutic alliance. Interventions, strategies, and useful approaches will be shared to increase both comfort and effectiveness in working with an addicted population.

Learning objectives:
i. Be able to summarize the relational context for understanding the process of addiction and recovery.
ii. Be able to name three ways a relational frame can have a significant positive impact on treatment
iii. Identify at least three new interventions and/or approaches for providing effective treatment to individuals struggling with addiction.
