Trauma and the Twelve Steps: An Integrated Retreat in Recovery Enhancement Weekend of January 31-February 2 , 2014

$405.00 – $1,750.00 (based on accommodation type)

This workshop's start date has passed.

Workshop Details

Twelve-step recovery programs are time-tested, community-level resources designed to help people overcome addictions, problematic behaviors, or relationship codependency. Maybe you are one of many who have tried the twelve-step approach yourself or with your patients but felt that something vital was missing. People in recovery and professionals often give up on twelve-step programming because it fails to fully address the role that unresolved trauma can play in addiction and codependency. In this workshop, you can learn to:
• Incorporate principles of trauma recovery into a twelve-step program in an easy, effective manner
• Expand your views of trauma, spirituality, recovery, and wellness
• Develop hands-on approaches for addressing both addiction and trauma triggers
• More effectively work with others on their quest for recovery and wellness
A complete integration of the recovery experience — past, present, and future; body, mind, and soul — awaits you in this interactive weekend retreat.
