EFT is an effective intervention for facilitating a shift or change within the therapeutic environment.

Relapse Prevention

We believe that relapse is a process and not an event and as such can be identified, intervened upon and prevented!

It is this belief that is at the core of our model for Relapse Prevention.

If you share our belief, we invite you to attend our Relapse Prevention training, which is designed to help identify the mental, emotional and behavioural changes struggling addicts need to interrupt a relapse process when they are thrown off course.

Read below to learn more about what you can expect to learn in this comprehensive four day training.

This training is the first step in developing a deep appreciation for relapse as a process, rather than an event to be analysed after the “crash”!

  • You will complete the training with a working knowledge of the concept lessons and the important therapeutic assignments needed to help end users to maximise the benefits of their final Individual Relapse Prevention Plan.
  • You will learn how the drugs affect the brain linked with the biological side of the addiction.
  • You will also learn how to teach the course to a diverse population with varying degrees of self-awareness and motivation in a variety of therapeutic settings, ranging from one-on-one instruction to group workshops.

Following this initial training, those interested in deeper skills will have the opportunity to engage in a rich mentoring program designed to enhance the skills needed to guide end users through the development of a highly individualised relapse prevention plan.

Training participants will be able to:

  • Analyse the six phases that precede a return to one’s “drug of choice”.
  • Recognise recent and/or pertinent contributions that trauma research and attachment theory has made to our understanding of addiction and why an addict seeking recovery may make the decision to return to active addiction.
  • Use task-oriented assignments designed to help the end user recognise what he or she looks like in each phase of the relapse process.
  • Design individualised and specific interventions to address the unique challenges addicts and their loved ones reportedly face most often.
  • You will be able to assist addicts in their ability to compile and hopefully share their completed relapse prevention plan with their loved ones, their broader support network, addiction treatment or mental health care professionals and others who might be interested in their welfare.
  • Adapt the course material to accommodate the unique challenges associated with varying levels of self-awareness and motivation that the end user brings to the planning process.
  • Develop an initial framework for how to present the course material in a lecture format and workshop setting.
  • Understand how to use the course material to support and stabilise an end user who has relapsed during the course work assignments or following the construction of the relapse prevention plan.

Dates for this workshop programme are:

  • Saturday 25th May 2019
  • Saturday 1st June 2019
  • Saturday 8th June 2019
  • Saturday 15th June 2019
