Counselors can easily use any of the six video topics to enhance concepts covered in an existing treatment curriculum or can use the video topics alone to conduct dynamic discussion sessions on core recovery topics.
People find that almost every aspect of their life is uprooted and disrupted once they begin recovery, and these changes can be radical and far-reaching. Being well prepared during this transition dramatically increases the odds of a successful recovery.
Recovery Basics helps smooth that transition by equipping those in recovery with the strategies and tools needed when small choices can have big consequences. In this engaging video, mental health expert Amanda Klinger, PsyD, LP, from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation discusses six basic topics:
* Starting Your Recovery
* Preventing Relapse
* Managing Your Day
* Managing Thoughts and Feelings
* Building Healthy Relationship
* Keeping It Going
Specific techniques that address cravings, triggers, negative influences, conflicting emotions, shame, guilt, and relapse are all presented in a way that is easy to understand.
