Hope and Despair in Treatment

Robert Hilliker, LCSW, LCDC, CDWF-C

Hope plays a vital role in the healing process and yet it is often not explicitly explored in treatment. In this luncheon workshop we will review the relevant literature on hope and despair, discuss the five constructs of "Reasonable Hope", and how to harness the power of hope and despair to advance the therapeutic process and improve treatment outcomes.

The Role of Group Therapy in Chemical Dependency Treatment

Brown Bag Lunch on July 11th

The Role of Group Therapy in Chemical Dependency Treatment

"Group therapy offers the chemically dependent individual an opportunity to address issues related to addiction, reinforce accountability in the actions required for recovery and have a safe outlet to share experiences, thoughts and feelings. When working with this population, it is essential to have a deep understanding of addiction, recovery and the role group therapy plays in the treatment of the illness. These topics will be discussed in detail as well as how to effectively work with addicts and alcoholics in group therapy."  Andrew Krieger, LMSW, LCDC
