Today's Webinar: Developmental Recovery – A Habilitation Model of Care
Wed, November 29, 2017 @ 3:00 - 4:00 pm ET (2 CT/1 MT/12 PT)
Presented by Robert Neri, LMHC, CAP, this presentation discusses how habilitation clients are creating a framework for recovery for the first time. Many deficits in the areas of knowledge, critical thinking, values, and emotional literacy are present. Constructing a recovery plan requires psycho-education, role playing, testing, building social support, treating institutionalization, and a clear model of care for core clinical issues (e.g., power and control, excitement, crisis, and chaos, rigid defense mechanisms, emotional manipulation, social support etc.). This session focuses on aspects unique to this particular client and strategies to facilitate emotional growth in recovering.
The Fall 2017 issue of Advances in Addiction & Recovery, the official publication of NAADAC, has been published and arrived in mailboxes of NAADAC members across the nation! NAADAC's magazine is a membership-benefit and focuses on providing useful, innovative and timely information on trends and best practices in the profession that are beneficial for practitioners.
