March 22, 6:00-7:30pm Zoom Presentation: NOTE TIME CHANGE
Families are typically the first line of recognition and care for a struggling loved one.
We are called on to be case manager, vocational counselor, therapist and housing specialist. Yet we have little access to training and support.
Kayla Solomon, LICSW, facilitator of the Allies in Recovery (www.alliesinrecovery.com) support group, and co-host of the podcast Coming up for Air, has worked at the intersection of mental illness and SUD (Substance Use Disorder) for many years as a clinician in private practice.
People struggling with serious mental illness feel alone and unheard. Families feel helpless and unsupported. Kayla will explain how families can take care of themselves while learning positive engagement with our struggling loved ones. She uses what is called the CRAFT approach, Community Reinforcement and Family Training.
By practicing the communication techniques she describes, we will learn how to acquire and maintain effective communication and connection. In her presentation we will have real time experience of staying centered and strong as family members and connected as loved ones by using mindfulness and reflective listening.
This presentation will be offered on zoom, Wednesday, March 22, 7:30-9:00pm
