UKESAD 2010: BUILDING BRIDGES -
HOW TO RECOVER FROM ADDICTION
incorporating the Inaugural London Recovery Walk
THE NEXT GOVERNMENT: GUIDELINES FOR US ALL
Whichever party wins the general election in May, Conservative Minister for Justice David Burrowes and Minister for Home Affairs James Brokenshire have excellent histories of working for effective treatment and can steer delegates through future policy. The Obama administration White House drugs adviser Keith Humphreys joins the opening plenary to share insights with the treatment field – read his bio here.
USE NEUROSCIENCE IN YOUR DAILY PRACTICE
Professor Carlton Erickson shares the latest research on how our brain chemistry determines addictive behaviours, and how talking therapies can, in turn, change brain chemistry. Dr Richard Seely explains how to optimise recovery through understanding its links with neurobiology. And Kevin McCauley reframes it all into social marketing techniques to get the message across.
SELFCARE FOR CARERS
The indomitable Max Cohen shares the lessons he gives his university students on avoiding burnout and compassion fatigue. Gillian Bridge teaches resilience. Delegates can also attend mindfulness sessions each morning, and gain support at daily open & closed 12-step meetings.
A certificate of attendance will be provided for delegates wishing to apply for Continuing Education Credits. The symposium is accredited by UKPCBADC, the UK Professional Certification Board of Alcohol/Drug Counsellors, a member board of the â€˜gold standardâ€™ IC&RC International Certification & Reciprocity Consortiun of Alcohol & Drug Counsellors. IC&RC president Jeff Wilbee will again be at UKESAD for the third year running, copresenting with Stradaâ€™s Joy Barlow and others on the accreditation of staff.
WIN A WEEK IN ANTIGUA
Ending on a light note, one lucky delegate is guaranteed to win a Renewal Week, including all meals and accommodation, at Eric Claptonâ€™s Crossroads Antigua, worth cÂ£2,000. All the winner need do is get there. Tickets Â£10 each or Â£20 for three, available only at UKESAD.
