Description

Shame and stigma are examined as significant predisposing factors to increased suicide risk in individuals currently struggling with or in early recovery from substance use disorders. Tying in principles and methods from his recent books on recovery resilience, Bob Weathers, PhD, CMHRS, explains how nuanced physiological changes that occur in the addictive brain often contribute to increased suicidal ideation. Finally, he incorporates cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness strategies, along with creative process and relational neuroscience, into a more advanced set of resources to aid in sustained and successful recovery while at the same time reducing suicide risk in this vulnerable clinical population.

Bob Weathers, PhD, CMHRS, is a highly-regarded educator, recovery coach, author, and public speaker. Weathers holds a PhD in Clinical Psychology. Over the course of his professional career, Weathers has provided tens of thousands of hours of therapeutic counseling and recovery coaching to satisfied clients. He has also committed over four decades to teaching, training, and inspiring graduate-level mental health providers at several southern California universities, including assisting in the development of their nationally-accredited substance use disorder studies certificate and mindfulness-based clinical training coursework. His two most recent books on substance use disorder recovery are currently in press with Cambridge University Press.
