Hi there don’t miss the opportunity to learn this fundamental CRAFT skill! A huge value add to your toolbox.
Wednesday 24th July @ 6pm EST - join us ONLINE for our group meetup - to share and learn together.
This time we’ll cover the next CRAFT Method : The Power of Positive Reinforcement & Intervening giving you a tool to systematically shift your loved one’s harmful habits to healthier ones. 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 discern where to take action and where to let things be. This is the first tool to help you know with confidence where you can effect positive change to see healthier behaviors grow. 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 Behavior Change through The Power of Positive Reinforcement?
Building on our prior gathering skill of communication we’ll now shift gears into mapping out our knowledge of their using & positive behavior. We know a lot more than we might realize and this knowledge is power to shape healthy change for our loved ones.
We’ll map out what we know using a functional analysis tool to create a roadmap of their using or generally harmful behaviors and we’ll find off and on-ramps where we can intervene in constructive ways. As well as look at the behaviors we want to see more of and learn how to shape their occurrence.
