What might practice look like and feel like when we shift from working on a person to working with a person? How do we engage people who don’t want to change? What might happen when we understand the why and how of motivating people to engage in care programming through developing a recovery orientation? What can happen is real, lasting, personally meaningful recovery and well-being. Over the course of this intensive, applied-skills training, we explore and develop a working understanding of essential recovery-enhancing practices that foster engagement, inspire hope and build a foundation that moves people beyond symptom relief and instead supports a life worth living.
