This unique workshop, also a first-time event, offers professionals a unique opportunity to deepen skills in attunement, trust building, and reaching even the most challenging clients. In a small group setting. Gabor will speak about the neurobiology of addiction through the lens of early attachment, bonding and trauma, in a simple and accessible way.
With the foundation established, Gabor will then will offer practical techniques for creating and enhancing safety (which he describes as ‘not absence of threat’ but ‘presence of connection’) with clients. Using safety as the basis for deep, effective engagement and client recovery, Gabor will address some of the most challenging issues that professionals face in working with addicted populations and their families.
Gabor will also discuss in depth the importance of exploring the counselor’s unhealed parts of self — even among those of us with decades of experience — and how this affects our ability to reach clients, and to establish safe boundaries. The day will include opportunities for interaction and some participants will have the opportunity to work direct with Gabor during the workshop.
