Ty Aschermann, BA, CADC II
Addiction Counselor at Hazelden in Newberg, Oregon

Positive Emotion in Recovery

In recovery, we have amazing opportunities to redefine our sense of self, utilize our strengths, receive and give love, sense inspiration, transcend our shame and feel excited about life. This capacity to continually improve our emotional experience is far from the reality we were once so familiar with in active addiction. Join us to learn about the emerging science of positive psychology—and its important role in addiction recovery.

*Please note schedule change due to July 4 holiday.

Tim Craley, MA, CADC II
Addiction Counselor at Hazelden in Newberg, Oregon

Addiction, Shame and Self-Acceptance

Addiction and shame go hand in hand. It's hard to recognize where one starts and the other ends. The disease leaves us feeling powerless, isolated and unworthy—feelings that are reinforced by
the strong sense of secrecy and silence surrounding addiction. But understanding our shame allows us to move into self-acceptance
and further our healing journey. Come and explore the way forward with us.

Jessica Haney, CADC I
Addiction Counselor at Hazelden in Newberg, Oregon

Developing Compassionate Communication

From birth, we begin assimilating cultural behaviors, norms, pain and even shame. How does this impact the way we communicate
with one another, and how might we redefine this in order to have compassionate relationships and compassionate communication in our recovery? Join us to take a closer look at how cultural assimilation impacts the way we express ourselves, and how our perspectives and attitudes serve our recovery and growth.
