Free NAADAC Webinar
A Live, Interactive Webinar
Wednesday, September 21, 2022 @ 3:00-4:30pm ET (2CT/1MT/12PT)
Do you want to make a difference in someone's life? If so, consider the research on how best to help someone make lasting change. Research suggests that action-oriented strategies are more effective than talk strategies. This webinar will review the importance of creating structured learning opportunities, how to deliver effective and fun role-plays in both group and 1:1 settings, and leave you with concrete strategies to incorporate into your daily practice.

Over the past year, she has delivered virtual training to corrections and addictions professionals on topics such as delivering treatment in a virtual world, effective case planning, and strategies to reduce the risk of reoffending.
