The Power of Being Enough: Connection, Identity, Self-Compassion and Attachment in Recovery (Pending 2.0 CEU Approval)

This webinar will explore early attachment and relationships' impact on an individual's way of engaging with the world. The foundations of attachment are critical when working with individuals who have a substance use disorder. The workshop will focus on fostering self-compassion during a time where criticism and self-hatred often reside and identify ways to help foster connection with others and with one's own recovery program.



  • Identify the impact of the attachment style in treatment
  • Identify the challenges of each attachment style in treatment 
  • Identify and develop the capacity to foster self-compassion. 
  • Identify ways to support clients foster a recovery identity.
