Working with Men and SUDs: Building a bridge from the “Man Rules” to the Principles of Recovery through clinical interventions

*This presentation is no longer eligible for the 1 CE credit*

In this presentation, we will explore a path to recovery for men. By helping men dismantle the “Man Rules,” we can better enable them to practice the Principles of Recovery. We will examine clinical interventions that deconstruct the harmful socialized beliefs of masculinity and build a culture of community, connection, and courage in their place. The journey starts with the concept of self and moves into relationships, sexuality, and spirituality. Recovery happens in relationships—the Principles of Recovery are the blueprint for building healthy and rewarding connections with others.

The Impact of Minority Stress and Adverse Childhood Experiences on LGBTQ+ Identified Individuals

Although gains have been made in the rights of LGBTQ+ individuals, recent legislation over the past several years has attempted to remove these rights contributing to increased stress due to discrimination and oppression of marginalized communities.  The session will present data on minority stress as it applies to the intersectionality of identities of LGBTQ+ individuals.  Minority stress, compounded with emerging research on adverse childhood experiences, will be examined as it relates to the higher prevalence of substance use and mental health issues in the community.

Addiction Interactions: Identifying and Treating the Neuropathways of Addiction

In this presentation, we will explore the 4 types of Addictions (substance, process, feeling, and compulsive attachments), along with the 4 Addiction Neuropathways (arousal, numbing, fantasy, deprivation) and how these various types of additions and pathways don’t just co-occur but actually interact with each other in powerful ways to form the black hole of Addiction Interaction Disorders. We will explore several of the overall 11 forms of Addiction Interactions and why identifying these is crucial for the overall treatment of these addictions and for long-term success in relapse-free sobriety and recovery.

Understanding Intervention and Structured Family Recovery®

*This presentation is no longer eligible for a CEU*

Intervention is not what you see on tv. At least not a good intervention. Intervention is a loving, caring experience that doesn’t have to be confrontational. It should be designed to preserve the client’s dignity at all costs. Structured Family Recovery® is the culmination of good intervention and good treatment. It is about creating a recovery support team out of a family to improve outcomes and bring a family together in ways they never imagined. Continue reading “Understanding Intervention and Structured Family Recovery®”

The term, “I don’t see color” is often used by individuals to describe their views on diversity but this phrase can be detrimental in therapeutic settings when treating persons of color. The ability for providers to “see” color allows for the development of culturally competent programming and is the critical factor of developing a therapeutic alliance.
