I am so excited to be working on the 1st Recovery Coach Training utilizing the CCAR (Connecticut Community of Addiction Recovery) curriculum which I pursued last year.
I will be collaborating with Colorado Mental Wellness Network in producing these trainings over the next year. The proceeds will go to that organization and be forwarded to CMWN to promote their peer support agenda and programs throughout Colorado. Additionally, CMWN focuses on ongoing supervision and continued education and connection to others in the field.www.coloradomentalwellnesnetwork.org
This training runs 4 consecutive Saturdays (10 hours each), however at least 2 of the future trainings will run (5) 8 hour days in one week.The cost for the 40 hour training will be $650 and the education can be applied towards the new Colorado Peer Support Specialist Certification (which should be rolled out in October 2015). We will be offering “Spirituality for Recovery Coaches” and “Ethical Considerations for Recovery Coaches” in the near future. All these should cover the required domains for the accreditation. Please consider sharing this information however the attached press release is still a draft, so kindly ask for the final before sending this onward.
I welcome your feedback and hope you will consider promoting CMWN in our community.
