JOIN US TONIGHT: Village Digital Gathering: Boundaries, Resistance + Knowing & Living within our Limits - details below & RSVP via link HERE!
Hi there don’t miss the opportunity to learn this fundamental CRAFT skill! A huge value add to your toolbox.
Wednesday 31st July @ 6pm EST - join us ONLINE for our group meetup - to share and learn together.
This time we’ll cover CRAFT tools - how to: Set and Maintain Personal Barriers & Rolling with Resistance - techniques to keep your cool in the face of frustration. The Power of Knowing & Living within our Limits giving you a tool to know your edges and lovingly set limits with those you care about. This is useful whether they are in active addiction or recovery, it’s a tool to use for life!
We know it can be hard to keep boundaries when someone we care about is suffering, but it’s vital we thrive through the chaos because we can’t help anyone when we’re depleted. CRAFT tools build on top of one another so this is a great time to jump in to the curriculum. And as always at each meetup there is ample time for open sharing and support from likeminded peers and coaches.
See the agenda below to know exactly what to expect and get a taste of why this method is so transformational.
Space is limited so be sure to reserve your spot asap.
Join us from the comfort of your own home via Zoom video / call conference or phone dial in.
Learn skills to shift harmful substance use habits in someone we love.
Join us for a gathering of likeminded peers, also loving someone through addiction. We’ll learn from one another as well as from our group guide Erica, who will teach us Positive Communication skills to take into our relationships.
Erica is not only a licensed mental health counselor with years of experience working in top and pioneering clinics she also has hard-earned personal experience of addiction within her family.
Gain practical tools and the optimism needed to shift roadblocks ahead when a loved one is in the grips of active addiction.
Using the power of the group we learn from each other’s experiences and foster a sense of community and connection.
Why Focus on Personal Boundaries, Rolling with Resistance & Limits?
Addictions are chaotic - we know this. These topics are all about how we show up and shield ourselves from the chaos and how this ultimately helps us and our loved ones.
Setting Personal Boundaries we get to know and maintain our limits, to use a metaphor we like, to ‘put our foot on the brakes before we break’. It starts with an awareness of where our limits are. We’ll work through this together and you’ll leave having a better sense of where your limits are and how to set and uphold them with others.
Learning to Roll with Resistance is just one technique we’ll share that will help in those moments when frustration is about to take over and we’re about to say or do things we’ll later regret. Plus when frustration mounts we rarely get what we want out of the conversation, this technique will set the foundation for better conversations with your loved one, more positive actions taken and closer relationships.
Knowing your limits are game changing because while you can’t control another person’s behavior, you can learn to notice what’s coming, how you’re feeling about it, and take an action that is in your control before a situation gets messy or messier.
Understanding your limits gives you power to no longer live at the effect of someone else’s actions. You get to live by choices instead of reactions.
We’ll guide you with a tool to identify limits and a practice to set them.
