Come look through a gambling recovery lens as we discuss the four themes of SMART Recovery (staying motivated, managing triggers, handling thoughts/feelings/behaviors, and living a balanced life), complete a Cost Benefit Analysis around gambling, practice an “ABC,” create a lifestyle balance pie and touch on CRAFT (Community Reinforcement and Recovery Training) basics (the Friends and Family counterpart to SMART). Attendees will be able to offer information to your gambling clients who may benefit from a secular alternative to other community support programs … you may even come away from this workshop-structured presentation with new skills that you find helpful in your own life! Kitty is well known in the field as an engaging, witty, and irreverent presenter – you won’t want to miss this session.
