Taking the Mystery Out of Relapse Part Two
This interactive webinar is for professional mental healthcare clinicians who want to learn how to assist their clients to identify and manage the progressive warning signs and high risks situations that lead to alcohol or other drugs (AOD) relapse despite a commitment to sobriety. Participants will learn that relapse is a process, not an event and that there are many identifiable warning signs and high-risk situations that occur far in advance of their AOD use. Valuable tools will be introduced that will enable the participants to assist their clients to take the mystery out of the relapse process and develop a strategic relapse prevention plan. Participants will learn how to utilize and personalize the “Relapse Cycle” process to better help their clients in preventing their own relapse cycle. This webinar includes a combination of lectures, demonstrations, and group discussions, designed to enhance the training process. Participants will also learn how to develop an early relapse intervention plan (R.I.P.). Then the participants will be led through a strategic step-by-step high-risk situation identification process. The process ends with teaching participants to help clients finalize a relapse prevention plan designed to help them identify and manage future warning signs and high-risk situations.
