“An Invitation to Change: Helping a Loved One Struggling with Substances”

is a workshop led by Carrie Wilkens PhD and Jarell Myers PhD of CMC: Foundation for Change.

The Invitation to Change (ITC) approach® is a practical, compassionate and research-proven roadmap for helping a loved one make healthy changes. The ITC is not based on “detachment” or “tough love” and instead helps family members take care of themselves while also staying engaged with and helping their loved one make positive changes.

We explore ways to help through Understanding, Awareness, and Actions and offer powerful strategies to combat the impact of shame and stigma. Learn to use kindness to accelerate the healing process for the person struggling and the family who loves them.
