Often times people in recovery have become so out of sync with their own health and wellness that even basic wellness practices are not implemented in their daily lives. Things as simple as getting enough rest, hydration and nourishment can be key relapse factors in early recovery.
In Wellness and Recovery, students will receive practical instruction through innovative resources to help create balance in their own lives as well as in the lives of those they work with. Course materials are designed so students can review and refine their own state of well-being so they can better assist their clients to do the same.
This course includes Wellness tools that support quality long term recovery. Practical assessments and tools address day-to-day routine needs related to sleep patterns, reducing stress, goal setting, getting organized, money management, communication about financial issues, and overall health.
An emphasis is placed on analyzing possible causes of financial problems and developing practical steps to resolve those problems, plus skills in communication to make money management a satisfying experience.
