Self-assessment provides the gateway for understanding our various characteristics, skills, challenges, and goals. As one creates his or her assessment of self, he or she gains fundamental building blocks for constructing their brand, offering sustainable and uniquely authentic articulation of self. This strategy for learning and acknowledging ones’ true self offers exciting opportunities for establishing continuity across the various roles persons in recovery must navigate. This webinar will examine how counselors can assist persons in recovery in building an authentic brand statement. The simple outcome of the naming of one’s own brand can provide a sustainable guide in taking healthy ownership of one’s recovery program.

Learning Objectives
  • Identify how guidance and support of clients in their self-assessment work can enable persons in recovery to build continuity and authenticity in their view of self.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of how creation of an authentic and unique brand statement can serve as a functional strategy for healthy self-perceptions.
  • Learn strategies for guiding a client in his or her exploration of his or her authentic self, with the goal of enacting practices for a daily recovery program that aligns with one’s true identity.
