Jessica Haney
Addiction Counselor, CADC I, Hazelden in Springbrook

Developing Compassionate Communication in Recovery

From birth we are assimilating behaviors, norms, pain and
even shame from our culture. How does this impact the way we
communicate with one another, and how do we redefine this for our recovery, not only for ourselves but for others? In order to have compassionate relationships, compassionate communication and compassionate social action, there has to be a fundamental change in attitude. Join Jessica in discussing how your culture impacts the way you express yourself and if it is serving you.

Jory Smith, Licensed Psychologist
Senior Clinician, Hazelden in Springbrook

Trauma and its Relationship to Addiction

Learning to better understand how "big T" traumas and "little t"
traumas impact a person's life and their addiction is a critical step in the recovery process, and often what a person is missing in their endeavor to be well. In this lecture Jory will outline and discuss several ways in which you can better understand how trauma and stress may be adversely affecting you or a loved one's life.

Sharon Bitz, MS, MAC
Supervisor, Family Program, Hazelden in Springbrook

Families in Recovery

Substance abuse disorders are a family disease in that those in
relationship with the alcoholic/addict also experience a disease
syndrome. This presentation focuses on what family members can do for themselves and for their loved ones. Research demonstrates that when a person seeking to recover also has a loved one who understands what it means to support recovery rather than rescue the addiction, their chances for long-term sobriety increase.
