We are excited to host Gloria Englund, MA, psychotherapist, author, Recovery Coach, and accomplished public speaker for a half-day training this Spring. Gloria is the founder of Recovering u, and offers highly acclaimed support groups for those who have lost a loved one to addiction.
The stigma and shame surrounding the disease of addiction (that often keeps clients from seeking support after addiction-related deaths) can be lessened through education and understanding the role this disease plays in the grief process. The intersection of trauma and grief, the client’s need to receive support for their loss, self-care practices, and the understanding of Post-traumatic Growth are paramount to supporting this kind of bereavement.
This activity is pending approval by the Minnesota Board of Behavioral Health and Therapy for 3 hours of credit for LADC, LPC, and LPCC. The Retreat is a State of Minnesota Board of Social Work approved Continuing Education Partner.
