Therapists Addiction Training: How to Help Clients Who Struggle with Substance Abuse

Thursday, September 3, 12-2pm (Eastern US)

Free Therapists Addiction Training:

Are you a therapist with a client struggling with substance abuse?

Do you feel inadequate when it comes to dealing with it?

When you haven’t gotten enough training on how to help, (most doctors and therapists haven’t), it can feel intimidating.

Graduate schools and PhD programs spend very little time on the topic of addiction.

As a result, you might avoid bringing it up, fear saying the wrong thing, or give the wrong suggestions.

We can miss opportunities to make a difference or not be able to help save a life.

With some basic tools you can make this difference and get empowered to confront the issue with your clients.

In this two-hour workshop, I’ll teach you step-by-step effective approaches to address substance use.

Learn to motivate your clients to take the next right actions with you and outside of sessions.
