Coaching as a catalyst & support for recovery from addiction
Wednesday, 18 January 2017 from 12:30 to 13:30 (GMT)
How confident would you be offering coaching to a recovering addict? As a coach experienced in this area I believe coaches have been deterred from working with people who have alcohol/drug/addiction problems due to the specialty therapeutic professionalism required and risk of life-threatening consequences should the client not be handled appropriately.
This webinar brings you 25 years of expert knowledge (Deirdre Boyd) in addiction-recovery combined with 7 years of coaching & 27 years of recovery experience (Camilla Crichton-Stuart) to demonstrate at what points in time and how coaches can intervene to help the troubled person, families and/or employers – from motivating them to seek selfhelp groups or professional help, to supporting them in conjunction with treatment & aftercare, and supporting families/ employers throughout. This also broadens business for coaches.
Finally, most alcohol/drug relapses occur at Christmas & new year; this webinar is timely.
1. Attendees will be able to list when and how coaches can ethically and safely support people with alcohol/drug/ addiction problems, for wellbeing & employment goals
2. Attendees will be able to communicate the distinctions between coaching and addiction professionals and their different skill sets, while also identifying how their existing skill sets are relevant to and synergise this work.
3. Will be able to offer resources and experts to refer to, should clients need additional support.
4. Attendees will thus be able to broaden their business base.
Camilla is a recovery coach, relationship systems coach and life coach. The bulk of her work is 1:1 coaching with special interest in supporting addicts in their recovery. “Recovering addicts need a huge amount of support, encouragement and championing to live a life free from active addiction,” she explains.
In addition to being an accredited life coach, Camilla is an ORSC practitioner (Organisation and Relationship Systems Coach). She is trained to work with couples, families and any other relationship system. For this work, she mostly co-facilitates with a fellow ORSC practitioner.
Camilla works with individuals, couples, families and corporate systems, in person and remotely. She coaches clients in recovery on life issues ranging from self-esteem, career movement to life transitions, pregnancy, post-maternity, professional development and relationship challenges. In her practice, clients clarify what they want and how best to achieve that for their individual abilities, capabilities and limitations.
For over two decades, Deirdre Boyd has been a leader in the field of recovery from addiction, with an international reputation. Based in the UK, she heads up DB Recovery Resources which supplies a daily news service to 9,400 people across the international alcohol/drug-treatment field on addiction recovery, publishes Recovery Plus e-mag (2million guaranteed view pa) and print journal (6,000 print run), and organises Recovery Plus training and networking events which has become the UK’s most successful conference on addiction recovery.
Previously and for over 20 years, she was CEO of the Addiction Recovery Foundation. She has spoken at the All Party Parliamentary Drugs Misuse Group, been quoted in House of Commons and House of Lords debates on alcohol and drugs, and contributed to the Drug Policy 2010 and Select Committees. She authored Addiction & Recovery: self-help for friends, families and addicts, which was translated into 7 languages.
