“Alliance”, “connection”, “bond” – these are all words people use to describe those crucial relationships that helped them to move into early recovery and to sustain their recovery. Being on a road to building on our existing strengths in cultural competence can help us to be present to more and more people in ways that can support their recovery.
Unfortunately, the steps for achieving and sustaining continued movement toward cultural competence as individuals and as organizations elude many of us. We offer one or two day workshops designed to increase participants’ awareness of resources available to enhance their own cultural competence, assess areas of strength, and discover opportunities within their own organizations to build culturally competent recovery services.
Participants will be invited to explore what helps, what heals and how they can make a difference – as individuals and within their organizations. Through dialogues, courageous conversations and exposure to video and print media, participants will discover the strengths within themselves and their organizations and explore the ways they can enhance and build upon those strengths for services that are recovery oriented, inviting and supportive.
Objectives of these workshops include:
Participants will engage in and practice key skills for courageous conversations
Participants will learn about key terms and concepts
Participants will learn about the role of culture within a recovery orientation
Participants will leave with ideas for using their own awareness, communication skills, and personal strengths to enhance their recovery oriented and culturally competent practices.
There are also multiple CARES (Certified Addiction and Recovery Empowerment Specialist) across the state of Georgia that are trained facilitators as well.
