Free NAADAC Webinar

June 5, 2014
Description

This free webinar is an overview of a new book and international training, Rein in Your Brain, where addiction experts, Cynthia Moreno Tuohy and Emmy Award-winning science journalist Victoria Costello, offer ten tools for breaking the cycle of impulsivity. This webinar introduces how to incorporate these techniques into one's daily interactions and lifestyle so relationships can move from those of conflict to mutual respect and understanding. Join us to help reduce relapse and sustain recovery of adult and adolescent substance use, abuse and dependent persons by improving your trauma conflict resolution knowledge, attitudes and skills.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify phrases and behaviors in the limbic area of the brain and how that hampers recovery;
  • Identify phrases and behaviors in the cortex area of the brain and how that enhances recovery;
  • Self-identify where you are in your own relationships (stages) and what you need and want to be in relationship with others in a healthy way.
