OUR STORIES HAVE POWER RECOVERY
JOIN THE WAITLIST
for the next course.
AIM OF THE TRAINING:
To learn how to share stories in a way that doesn’t feed into the negative public perception of addiction.
To provide information on working with the media, engaging with government groups, treatment providers and others in positions of influence.
To consider techniques for conveying our message. How to stay on track, how using clear informed statements can help us steer positive conversations and outcomes.
By the end of the course you will have learnt and be able to teach others about:
How to tell your recovery story in the most positive, informative and influential way
How to use recovery messages in all parts of your life, including representing the recovery community in the media and other public places
