Continuing Education Event – Treating Addiction with Compassion, Connection, and Kinship – Newark, DE – 9/25/2019

Date & Time

Wednesday, September 25, 2019 10:00 am

Ends at 1:00 PM

Location

The Tower at STAR - University of Delaware - South Entrance

100 Discovery Blvd.

Newark

Cultivating compassion, connection and kinship goes beyond feeling more empathy and concern for others. It develops the strength to be with suffering, resilience in the face of life’s challenges, and the courage to take compassionate action. These qualities support a wide range of goals, from improving personal relationships to making a positive difference to those suffering from the disease of addiction. Preliminary research suggests that creating environment of compassion, connection, and kinship lead to healing and understanding. Similar programs can increase self-compassion and self-care, reduces stress, anxiety, and enhanced connection with others. These are beneficial practices for those who work in the behavioral health field, as well as those who are connected to those in active addiction, and recovery.

Learning Objectives: In attending the course, participants will learn

a) Basic psychological education pertaining to the dynamic interactions between thoughts, emotions, and feelings, and their relation to one’s well-being. How this intersects with trauma and healing relating to substance use disorders.

b) A cognitive reorientation of outlook, so that there is a deeper recognition of the value of compassion, connection and kinship especially in relation to one’s own peace and happiness, and in treating others. How do we create an environment of compassion, connection, and kinship that fosters healing for those that are suffering from the disease of addiction?

c) Creative interactive practical exercises that could help evoke specific affective states relative to the themes of compassion, connection and kinship (for example, these could include sharing a story and exploring how a compassionate response to specific events could unfold).

This training is free and open to everyone.
