This is a Virtual Classroom event.

Recovery Coaching continues to gain momentum throughout the country and with good reason. Recovery Coaches can and do connect people to long-term and sustained recovery. Because of this, more and more coaches are being utilized in a variety of settings, including doctors’ offices, police stations, drug courts, treatment centers, and, most notably, Emergency Departments. The need for skilled coaches who can easily adapt and work in a fast-paced ED setting is growing exponentially. This course prepares participants for the challenging and rewarding role of a Recovery Coach in the Emergency Department. 
Learning Objectives for this course include: 

  • Describe the roles and functions of the Recovery Coach working in the Emergency Department; 
  • Understand and practice staying in your lane; 
  • Develop skills to advocate and educate staff, patients, etc.  as a way to demonstrate accountability within the role; 
  • Use of Motivational Interviewing (MI) to bring people through the stages of change into Recovery; 
  • Further develop your art of Recovery Coaching.
