Event description

Description

It can be difficult for people to access good, reliable information about possible substance abuse and addictive behaviours in those close to them.

Understanding of these complex problems can be incomplete, inaccurate and sometimes completely incorrect which makes a difficult situation even more complicated for family and friends.

Getting a good basic understanding of what behaviours may be risky, what constitutes addictive behaviour, rather than “bad habits”, what is helpful support and where reliable professional help may be sought can be a lifeline.

Target Audience

This small group workshop is aimed at families, friends and carers who are concerned about those at risk of an addiction-based issue or who are currently trying to support a person in this situation. Alternatively, it may be helpful to those who want to develop a good basic understanding of this important issue.

Contents

Addiction impacts all aspects of a person’s life and the lives of those around them. This workshop aims to help you better understand the process of addiction through looking closely at the particulars of the addictive personality.

Further we will examine how addiction affects the family/significant others of the addict and how they can intervene to support the addict getting into recovery. Lastly we will look at recovery and treatment options.

Topics

  • Definition of addiction  
  • Looking inside the addictive personality
  • Stages of addiction:
    • Internal change
    • Lifestyle change      
    • Life breakdown
  • Family and Addiction
  • Recovery from addiction and treatment options

The number of attendees is limited to a maximum of 8 to ensure a highly interactive small group environment. All participants will be asked to agree to respect the confidentiality of others attending the workshop.

Workshop Leader

The workshop will be led by Anna Bampou, an experienced counsellor/ psychotherapist who specialises in working with addiction issues.
