Effective Peer Supervision Workshop



CPS practice is based on relationships, and it’s hoped that this training will help build a strong relationship between you, the supervisor, and the CPS supervisee(s) you’re working with. To support this partnership, each module in this training offers exercises that include your supervisee(s) in order to open dialogue about your relationship, your roles, and the strengths of your particular setting, as well as areas that need to be strengthened. While the training can be completed without any CPS involvement, doing it together can create the roadmap for meaningful supervision based on what you’re both learning about each other in the training. 

Effective Peer Supervision Registration: $795.

CART, the global leader in quality recovery coach training, bases all offerings on fundamental coaching excellence.

Should I Hire a Recovery Coach?

 

You (or your clients) have been through rehab or some form of counseling or support group. You have been sober for a significant period of time. You’re still struggling, though. You feel like triggers are all around you. That bar where you used to hang out with friends and get drunk is on your way to work. An old friend with whom you got high keeps texting you. You feel depressed, anxious and stressed out and you just know that using again will dampen these feelings.

Recovery is hard and relapse is common. How can you avoid turning back to drugs and alcohol? There are a lot of strategies, like finding new hobbies. going to meetings, working with a sponsor and others, but they aren’t always enough. On the other hand, you may be feeling secure in your sobriety, but your life revolves around avoiding relapse. You aren’t thriving, and every day feels like a chore.

Recovery Coach Professional Designation from CCAR

What Does a Recovery Coach Do?

 This is where a recovery coach becomes useful. Coaching goes beyond therapy and beyond what a sponsor does. A coach is much more than any one thing. A good recovery coach is a leader, a mentor, a partner, a therapist, a spiritual guide and a cheerleader. A coach will do just about anything to help a client stay sober and to build a life that is meaningful and enjoyable. A coach wants the client to be more than just sober. A good coach wants the client to thrive. Here are just a few examples of what a coach might do for you:. Unlike a sponsor, who is a volunteer, a coach works for you.  When previously agreed upon, if you need them at 3 a.m. because you think you might use, she will be there.

  • Find resources. A coach can help you find the resources you need to get more treatment or to engage in other activities that will enrich your life, like education or finding a better job.
  • Connecting to Community. Accompany you to meeting, social functions, meals, appointments to support you engaging in a new world of recovery.
  • Help you set and achieve goals. Coaches want their clients to succeed, but they will not do the work for them. A coach can help you realize what goals you want to achieve and will guide you toward their successful conclusion.
  • Communicate with family. Getting back together with family after addiction can be tricky. A coach will help you learn to reconnect in a productive way.
