Beyond the Call: Recovery Wellness Theory, Practice and Healing for Front Line Workers & First Responders (6 CEUs)


Social unrest and political uncertainty, along with a global pandemic, have made for an enormous disconnection for communities worldwide experiencing great dissonance and dissatisfaction. The spike in growing substance use and mental health challenges have brought on greater distress for individuals, heartache for families, and preoccupation for communities. Add in the growing decriminalization of substances, along with progressive conversations on justice reform, and it makes for strange times, which will require different approaches.


This workshop was created in order to better prepare the mindset to support communities accordingly, thus creating a greater union of our people and stronger, more robust, communities across our nation.
