About this event
Bernadette Gleeson, trainer
This training will include a deep look at:

- Quick history of Recovery Movement/RCO’s/RCC’s (where does it all fit)
- Numbers and research on recovery
- True deep look at multiple pathways
- ROSC, Recovery Capital, Recovery Management
- Coaches role in building Recovery Capital
Goals of Training
- Build on foundational knowledge that was learned in RCA.
- Provide contextual and historical knowledge to where and how RCO’s/RCC’s fit in the movement, as well as the research/foundational legitimacy around peer support.
- Hone current acquired skills, and add new skills and tools to amplify and elevate the
RC’s/volunteers experiential expertise.
- Shift the way that we think about, feel about, interact with, and deliver services to people with SUDs and people in recovery.
- Learn historical context and knowledge as it relates to the Recovery Movement and where/how RCO’s/RCC’s fit within the movement.
- Differentiate between the role of a RC and all other service providers.
- Demonstrate an understanding of multiple pathways to/in/of recovery.
- Describe how/where RCO’s/RCC’s fit into Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care, what their role is in Recovery Management, and how to help recoverees build internal and external Recovery Capital.
- Demonstrate an understanding of the existing research on recovery.
- Define addiction and recovery in a way that the general public can understand – making sure that their language aligns with the possibility and probability of recovery with the right opportunities.
- Learn how to share their story from a place of light, and one that highlights how the general public can be an opportunity for people with SUDs to be alive in recovery.
- Practice repertoire of skills learned through completion of “journey work” at the end of each training – to be returned and evaluated by direct supervisor.
