New & Next: Webinars

Couples in Recovery

The NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Providers, webinar “Trauma and Addiction Recovery: How to Work with Couples” will be held on December 1 from 3 to 5 p.m. EST. Therapist and researcher Robert J. Navarra, PsyD, LMFT, MAC, will discuss managing triggers and obstacles for couples affected by addiction. Because divorce rates are estimated to be four times higher for relationships impacted by addiction than those that aren’t, addressing this issue is critical. Professionals can expect to learn about relational approaches to addiction recovery and how to apply three trauma interventions. Registration is free.

Addressing Behavioral Issues in the Workplace

Many Americans struggle with behavioral issues, and the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation’s webinar “Addressing Behavioral Health Issues in the Workplace” highlights the manifestation of these personal obstacles in the workforce, addressing the cost of substance use disorders and other mental health conditions. Professionals will learn how to approach these issues by developing strategies and solutions to be implemented in the workplace. Register here.
