I recently heard myself criticizing Rachel Hollis. I thought, what could she possibly share about self-care or mental health if she doesn’t have the credentials to back up her claims. I am ashamed to admit that, but hey- I ate my words once I listened to her audio book. I feel like my learning lesson helped to keep my pride in check and remember to continually put humility first. This is for anyone who needs a boost in inspiration and wants to get pumped up about yourself! Love Love Love!!!
When working with clients struggling with addiction, one angle I would like to gently encourage new and well-seasoned counselors to remember is the holistic point-of-view. As counselors, we are trained to conceptualize… but are we truly being holistic when we treat? Here is a CHIME model that I have worked on over the past year. I found this model to be effective with an adult population struggling with alcohol addiction. Here is a free video powerpoint with self-advancing slides to help increase your knowledge of CHIME. Enjoy!
