Trauma Informing the 12 Steps: Empowerment in Alcohol & Drug Addiction Recovery
It is recognized today that clients engaged in substance use disorder treatment services often have a history of emotional, physical and/or sexual trauma. The critical need for Trauma Informed Care has risen to widespread visibility through research, training & evidence based intervention models. The 12 Step groups AA & NA are the most widespread and accessible peer support groups, though some language in the 12 Steps, may be contraindicated for survivors of trauma.
This training provides an overview of broadened definitions of trauma & the principles of trauma informed care, with supplemental 12 step language options to support client empowerment and prevent re-traumatization. Participants will understand the relationship between unhealed trauma and the development of substance use disorders. Participants will be exposed to broadened definitions of trauma including (DSM V, SAMHSA, ACES, Intersectional Oppression & more). You will increase your knowledge and learn skills to assist trauma survivors. **This Training is Not Affiliated with AA, NA or any 12 Step program or entity** (Trainer, Eryca Kasse, LICSW, Founder, CHOICES in Healing & Recovery, LLC)
Class 2- 2:00pm – 5:00pm
To Disclose or Not Disclose, That is the Ethical Question!
The therapeutic relationship can be enhanced by the rapport the therapist has with their client. Yet some clients are easier to connect with than others. Can self-disclosure help with rapport building? Can self-disclosure help the therapeutic relationship or does it just lead down a slippery ethical slope?
This interactive training will explore these questions and more. Participants will look at our own personal values, examine case vignettes and explore how transference and counter transference can affect the efficacy of the therapeutic relationship.
