Working with Clients Suffering Addiction – Strategies and Considerations

Presented by James LaLonde, Coordinator Bridgeway Intensive Residential Treatment 

This month’s counsellor café features James LaLonde, Coordinator at Bridgeway Intensive Residential Treatment, who will present on  strategies for treating a wide variety of addictions.

After James’ presentation there will be a question and answer period to give attendees time to discuss strategies and considerations to alleviate identified concerns about working with clients with addiction.  We will also examine our own experiences and practices and share strategies and coping techniques which help us be effective with our clients with addiction.

As usual, there will be handouts and resource materials on display.

We encourage you to bring your voice, knowledge and experience and share with fellow counsellors.  Non-RCC counsellors and graduate students of counselling are welcome.

Bring your lunch and chat between 12:00 and 1:00.
