About this event

Bernadette Gleeson, trainer

This training will include a deep look at:

  • Our beliefs about what addiction and recovery are, as to make sure that our beliefs do not cause any unintended barriers to the people we serve
  • The role of a Recovery Coach (research/legitimacy on peer support and TRS)
  • 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

  1. Build on foundational knowledge that was learned in RCA.
  2. 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.
  3. Hone current acquired skills, and add new skills and tools to amplify and elevate the

RC’s/volunteers experiential expertise.

  1. Shift the way that we think about, feel about, interact with, and deliver services to people with SUDs and people in recovery.

Learning Objectives:

RC’s/volunteers will:

  1. Learn historical context and knowledge as it relates to the Recovery Movement and where/how RCO’s/RCC’s fit within the movement.
  2. Differentiate between the role of a RC and all other service providers.
  3. Demonstrate an understanding of multiple pathways to/in/of recovery.
  4. 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.
  5. Demonstrate an understanding of the existing research on recovery.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Practice repertoire of skills learned through completion of “journey work” at the end of each training – to be returned and evaluated by direct supervisor.
