This workshop is hosted by UD Partnership for Healthy Communities and presented by Recovery Centers of America

Cultivating compassion, connection and kinship goes beyond feeling more empathy and concern for others. It develops the strength to be with suffering, resilience in the face of life’s challenges, and the courage to take compassionate action. These qualities support a wide range of goals, from improving personal relationships to making a positive difference to those suffering from the disease of addiction. Preliminary research suggests that creating environment of compassion, connection, and kinship lead to healing and understanding. Similar programs can increase self-compassion and self-care, reduces stress, anxiety, and enhanced connection with others. These are beneficial practices for those who work in the behavioral health field, as well as those who are connected to those in active addiction, and recovery.

This training is free and open to everyone. CEU credits have been applied for and would be issued by the Delaware State Board.
