This week I’m working with Terry Gorski to present his 44 Hour Relapse Prevention Therapy Certification School. Our participants represent many different modalities including military, drug treatment courts, faith-based programs, and other traditional addiction treatment programs. This training is designed to train our participants to help break a chronic relapse cycle that impacts as many as a third to a half of all recovering people.
This 44 hour advanced clinical skills training is designed for professional clinicians who are good and want to get better. At this training our participants are being challenged to take their current clinical skills and integrate them with new and powerful approaches for teaching clients to identify and manage high risk situations that lead to relapse in the critical first months of recovery.
The training is not easy, but most of our past students describe it as a major turning point in their professional and personal lives. Our participants are working hard. They will go home tired, but it will be a good tired. They will leave this training better prepared to make a difference in the lives of their patients and their families.
Certification as a Relapse Prevention Specialist has proven helpful to many of our graduates. There is a strong demand for new relapse prevention programs. The professionals most qualified to run these programs are Certified Relapse Prevention Specialists. As a result, many of our graduates have become supervisors of relapse prevention programs or private practitioners specializing in relapse prevention.
