Couples and Addiction Recovery is a groundbreaking new training for therapists, counsellors, and professionals. While current models for treating couples impacted by addiction discourage any type of relational approach in early recovery, couples need help sooner rather than later. It’s time to change how we treat couples in recovery.
This online course is for anyone working with couples struggling with addiction as well as couples in recovery from alcohol, drugs, and/or behavioural addictions. It draws from the fields of addiction treatment, mental health, and couples counselling, and integrates current research findings with knowledge from clinical practice.
It combines more than a decade of research by Dr. Robert Navarra with the Sound Relationship House model, developed by Drs. John and Julie Gottman. Dr. Navarra has worked in addiction recovery for over 25 years. He holds an Advanced Drug and Alcohol Certification and a national certification as a Master Addiction Counsellor through the Association of Addiction Professionals (NAADAC).
This training provides interventions and tools for a relational approach to healing that addresses three different but overlapping recoveries: the person with the addictive disorder, the partner, and their relationship. You will learn a research-based approach to help couples:
- Identify addiction
- Break through denial
- Navigate the challenging road from active addiction to recovery
- Improve conflict management skills
- Learn the difference between “codependency” and “interdependency” and how to identify and set appropriate boundaries
- Develop a relationship recovery, while supporting their partner’s recovery and strengthening their own individual recovery
- Heal from the aftermath of addiction
- Move toward wellness as individuals and as a couple
