Helping Women Recover focuses primarily on recovery, emphasizing the key issues of self, relationships, sexuality, spirituality, and the trauma-informed therapeutic techniques for dealing with these issues. Helping Men Recover addresses what is often missing in prevailing treatment models: a clear understanding of the impact of male socialization on the recovery process, a consideration of client's relational needs, and a focus on the issues of abuse and trauma. Throughout the workshops, your trainers also discusses how the treatment program materials can be used with those in the criminal justice system.
Beyond Trauma: A Healing Journey for Women incorporates the latest understanding of trauma and PTSD to assist both new and seasoned group leaders, interactive techniques for developing coping skills and emotional wellness, and support for adapting the material for youth. Beyond Violence (criminal justice programs) and Beyond Anger and Violence (community programs) explore the topics of anger and violence on both the personal and relationship levels; the intersections of anger, violence, and substance use; and the effects of anger and violence in our communities and society at large.
Dr. Covington’s immersive learning model goes beyond simply interactive and provides opportunities to practice and apply new skills as attendees are trained as group facilitators using the participant workbook. The core healing and recovery treatment interventions allow attendees to experience the curriculum as a client would, engaging in the activities as a group member, to develop a deeper sense of emotional responses – both potential clients’ and their own.
“I appreciated experiencing the curriculum in a client's perspective
at times throughout the conference. It was enlightening."
