2018 Professional Development & Client Workshops:
Couples in Recovery Workshops!
Workshop #1 Hone Your Relationship Skills- Aftercare Program Presentation
What: Interactive presentation to increase Aftercare clients' confidence and skills in creating a long-lasting, fulfilling intimate relationship
When: Week night (Monday-Thursday); 60 minutes
Where: Addiction Treatment Centers
Why: Recovery is a time to positively transform all areas of your life (emotional, physical, spiritual, social, etc.), yet few addictions treatment programs are able to provide education and therapy on the topic of healthy intimate relationship skills for understandable reasons. Yet, many clients are already in significant relationships and are in dire need of help while other single clients may or may not be immediately interested in intimate relationships, but it's never too early to learn healthy relationship skills. Also, current research by The Gottman Institute (2016) demonstrates the correlation between successful individual recoveries and the health of the couple relationship.

Workshop #2 Have Each Other's Backs Again! Couples in Recovery Workshop
What: Interactive workshop supporting couples in recovery to heal, reconnect, and strengthen their relationship by learning and practicing research-based healthy relationship skills. Whether your relationship is in crisis or robust, couples can always hone their relationship skills and benefit from reflecting with other like-minded couples about what it means to be a couple in recovery, and decide as a couple, your unique vision for your relationship.

When: Week night (Monday-Thursday 5:30pm-9:30 pm) or weekend (Saturday 9am -1pm or 1pm - 4pm); 4 hours
Where: Treatment Centers or Lana's Private Practice: 720 Kipling Street, Suite #113, Lakewood, CO 80215
Why: Divorce rates are 4-7 times higher for couples with addiction issues. Therefore, Dr. Robert Navarra (with the Gottman Institute) recommends that earlier couples work is necessary in contrast to the old model, which was "stabilize the recovery so couples conflict doesn't upset the recovery". Current research actually shows instead that "Healthier relationship satisfaction contributes to recovery!" Individuals in recovery deserve to have a partner by their side with whom they can enjoy their recovery journey. And if they have children, a healthy couple relationship can positively affect the course of their children's lives!
Cost: $250/Couple for 4-hour workshop, which includes handouts and snacks
