2017 Addiction Counselor Preparation Course @ The Extension
May 5 @ 9:00 am – May 6 @ 5:30 pm

2017 Addiction Counselor Preparation Course

Location: Marietta, GA

May 5 & 6, 2017

Ethics.

Compassion Fatigue: Helping the Helper.

Helping the helper. Our Ethics and Compassion Fatigue courses address our professional and ethical boundaries and practices, and what to do about it. On Friday in our Ethics course we will look at the Code of Ethics, ethical decision making, and more. On Saturday you will learn what compassion fatigue is, how to address it, how to identify specific symptoms and create your unique individual care plan. Often counselors new in the profession can be most at risk because we don’t know how to manage ethical dilemmas, or how to identify or address compassion fatigue when it arises. One of the best ways to combat compassion fatigue is to play, so we invite you to take a moment, take a risk and take some action.

CARES Exam @ Hearts To Nourish Help
May 5 @ 12:30 pm

We want to accommodate everyone who wishes to take the exam on Friday, so please  register so we will have sufficient supplies to accommodate you.

Participants arriving late for the exam will not be allowed to enter the testing room. Everyone is allowed to take as much time as they need to complete the exam once they have started, but we have found that people entering the room late provide too much of a distraction to others taking the test. We appreciate your consideration.

 

If you register and your plans change, please let us know.

Please remember to review the exam study guide and webinars, which are available online HERE.

CARES/ROSC Workshop @ The Door
May 19 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

The CARES/ROSC Workshop is an excellent opportunity for potential CARES to learn more about peer recovery support services, and how they fit into a Recovery-Oriented System of Care (and what a recovery-oriented system of care is). That understanding can not only help applicants through the application process, it helps them to better understand if the CARES Academy is something they are ready to pursue.

In addition to information about Recovery Oriented Systems of Care, the workshop provides practical skills in applying for the Academy, including a review of writing samples, and a mock group interview (with feedback from the facilitator).
