The APNC South Central Region is proud to offer this training, presented by: Scott Luetgenau, MSW, LCSW-A, LCAS-A
About this Training:
The Recovery Messaging Training will equip individuals with a fundamental grasp of the latest neuroscience behind addictive behaviors. The intersection of environmental, psychological, genetic, and neurobiological factors will be discussed as key contributors to addiction. This approach counters common misperceptions that addiction is a choice or moral failing on the part of the individual. Participants will review these negative stigmas and examine how they create barriers to the motivation and successful treatment of clients. Cultural factors regarding drugs and alcohol will be reviewed in an attempt to better assess the significant challenges faced by marginalized populations. A clear knowledge of addiction and recovery, based in the latest evidence-based research, grants practitioners the skills necessary to engage their clientele with competence and dignity.
