A little bit about each training session..
Did you know – services that are co-produced with the people accessing them are more likely to get it right first time, deliver what is needed and save money long term? Do you want to co-produce with local service users? Or do you use services and think you would have some great ideas on how they can improve? Our Co-production training can help everyone learn how important the voices of people with lived experiences are, what they can bring to the table, and how to support them to co-produce with services. Or find out how you as someone who uses services can get involved and have an equal say from start to finish in making improvements. Attend our training week in June.
Introduction to Addiction Training:
Do you want to understand why a loved-one, client or colleague is trapped in addiction? Is addiction caused by weakness or flaw in genetics or is it something else? What’s going on biologically; see the complex neurology explained simply to see what’s happening in our brains when we are obsessed, unable to make good decisions, stuck in our habits and deeply ingrained behaviours that are harming us and those who we care about. Our introduction to addiction training offers hope and understanding while humanising a problem that causes pain to us and those suffering with addiction.
Recovering from Addiction Training:
What’s the difference between those who pursue their recovery and those who can’t quite start? Can we do anything to help someone who isn’t ready to recover? What is it like to go through addiction recovery? What has helped people persevere in recovery after decades of active addiction? And what have I learned that can help you? I don’t think we can do recovery on our own, and it’s not quick or easy, but I’ll share what I’ve learned, what I do to stay healthy and strengthen my recovery and things that help people I mentor in their own addiction recovery.
Recovering from Addiction with Spirituality Training:
What can spirituality offer you, if you’re against religion? Is there hope and purpose that can be found outside yourself, beyond what you can see and measure? What can you learn from indigenous philosophies—while keeping your feet on the ground in modern life? What is cutting edge brain science showing about spirituality that brings hope? Addiction can come from isolation and much more, so connecting with something or someone can help. Find out more about how spirituality can make a difference with addiction recovery by coming along to our training week.
Porn and Sex Addiction Training:
Want to understand why your partner won’t stop looking at porn? Learn what’s happening in the brain during active addiction and how it’s more related to dopamine, neurotransmitters, and testosterone than sex. And, their addiction is no more about you than it is about sex.
