This highly interactive eight hour course developed specifically for law enforcement personnel who work with drug offenders. ICT is combining over 400 hours of the most up-to-date training to bring you a course that will not only improve your current communication skills, but provide you with advanced methods to enhance your ability to work with best practice models within addiction models.
“Excellent, exciting course. Should be mandatory training for all staff.” – Drug Court Psychologist
This course will combine the evidence based practices of interpersonal neurobiology such as Non Violent Communication (NVC), Motivational Interviewing, Imago and other related models to teach participants respectful, collaborative communication strategies when working with substance abusers. This systematic approach teaches the communicator how to utilize empathetic listening and acknowledge needs which lead to the ability to make requests to modify behavior. The participant will learn how to listen effectively, discover limiting beliefs, dispel labels, define what the window of somatic tolerance is, one up-one down thinking, power and identity, our circle of perception and impact vs. intention. We will examine the model of addiction, the 21 day commitment and the 8 day relapse window. An in-depth study of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs will be explored and tied to ordering of rehabilitative goals.
“Immediately applicable. Amazing instructor! I was completely engaged.”
– Deputy Probation Officer, AB109 Caseload
