Free NAADAC Webinar
Wednesday, January 15, 2020 @ 3-4:30pm ET (2CT/1MT/12PT)
Recovery for families involves positive stress management, coping with change, and the availability of support. We will examine how learning to cope with manageable stress is critical to developing resilience. Communication and community collaboration will be highlighted as essential to family members building skills, creating biological resistance to adversity, and experiencing resilient outcomes. Communication performances of bonding, bridging, and linking will be detailed as critical to family members’ cultivation of stability, finding a rhythm in family life with confidence to manage change. Throughout the webinar, participants will be asked to build upon ideas for family-practitioner-community collaboration to enhance resilience among families.
- Identify the impacts of social connections on one’s ability to positively manage stress.
- Identify how communication is directly linked to adaptability and building resilience in family systems.
- Construct links between his or her own communities and new methods for encouraging resilient outcomes and performing recovery support for families.
