“I don’t work with addiction!”
Taking the fear out of addiction and dependency issues in a general counselling setting.
Many counsellors/counselling agencies do not work with people who are known to have an active addiction to drugs or alcohol, and yet it is inevitable that such issues will arise in counselling – either in respect of the client themselves, or because they are affected by family members or friends living with a drug or alcohol addiction/dependency.
This one-day workshop aims to improve your understanding of addiction and dependency issues, to understand the drug and alcohol treatment system and what resources are available, and to explore working with addiction/dependency issues.
The workshop is led by Peter Walker, counsellor and supervisor, formerly CEO of a drug and alcohol treatment agency for more than 17 years.
