Addiction is a pervasive problem in society and there are many approaches that have been developed to achieve sobriety and long-term recovery. One of the more successful approaches is the use of Professional Recovery Coaches. Learn the dynamics of a strengths-based system for changing addictive behavior through a process of reconnecting to one's joyful identity and work toward helping others overcome and break the cycle of addiction.
In this course you will learn the effects of addiction on the brain and discover the foundational role that joy plays in recovery as you see how lasting, joyful connections are vital to the recovery process. You will also learn the role of the Professional Recovery Coach along with the desired skills, traits and competencies needed for success in the coaching relationship.
