This one-hour talk from Dr. Jeff Foote will cover the fundamentals of the Invitation to Change Approach – a toolset designed for the loved ones of people who are struggling with substance use. The Invitation to Change Approach draws from CRAFT (Community Reinforcement and Family Training), MI (Motivational Interviewing) and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), and offers a way to help that is grounded in science and kindness. This talk is presented in collaboration with the New Canaan Parent Support Group.
He is co-author of the award-winning book Beyond Addiction: How Science and Kindness Help People Change, a practical guide for families dealing with addiction and substance problems in a loved one, based on principles of Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT). He is also a contributor to two workbooks combining strategies from CRAFT and Motivational Interviewing: The Parent’s 20 Minute Guide and The Partner’s 20 Minute Guide, which offer specific tools and practice in evidence-based strategies for helping a loved one change.
A team member will be in touch with you as soon as possible.
