For anyone affected by or helping others to overcome addiction
This exciting new online event, which took place live online on Saturday 11th March, brough together highly experienced psychotherapists and experts keen to share their extensive knowledge and experience with you. The science-based insights encompassed in the human givens approach represent a major leap forward in the way we view and treat addictions – avoiding the medicalisation of addictive behaviour and offering realistic, practical solutions.
Drawing on real life examples and the latest neuroscience, the speakers look at different forms of addiction, its causes (including links with trauma), the 3 key steps needed for recovery, screen addiction, the best ways to help those affected by someone else’s addiction, and more!
