Working With Clients in Recovery

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!
