Description de l'évenement

Addiction affects everyone in the family. Family system theory suggests that individuals in families cannot interact without impacting the whole. This two-day workshop will explore just how each member may be impacted by addiction. At times, loved ones may resort to using coping skills that are maladaptive and are not helpful to them or to the addicted individual. Family members who have lived with addiction may learn to not feel, not trust and not talk. Working with both family members and the addicted individual can be a challenge. This workshop will provide tools to help facilitate this process in an interactive and practical manner.

Learning objectives:

Discuss various family theories, including family roles and rules and how addiction can interfere.
Learn about various treatment modalities and tools to help support families.

Know how to assess substance abuse/dependence in families and provide treatment planning.

Investigate how family involvement and recovery can help prevent relapse for both the family members and the addicted individual (including how to support families when the addicted individual is pre-contemplative about changing).

Increase knowledge about the various community supports available for family members.

CACCF: 6 core and 6 related continuing education hours.
