Active chemical dependency represents an ongoing change process for the family. The family makes slow, incremental, adaptive changes over time in response to the steady progression of the disease. The solution often becomes worse than the problem. Time tested and accepted family techniques in the right measure and right order, reverse this toxic process. Through a highly interactive process, participants will know the core regeneration networking principle and be able to identify techniques for using this technology with addiction families. Role play and other interactive techniques will be used to explore this technology.
Participants will be able to:
- Describe and identify the family adaptive process of addiction.
- Define homeostasis as it relates to chemical dependency.
- Identify 5 of the 9 recommended techniques for use with impaired families.
Participants will be able to be more understanding and effective in their dealings with families impacted by chemical dependency and other addictions.
Due to extraordinary demand, we have closed registration for this event
