Sessions for Organizations,
Businesses and Community Groups
Did you know...?
Almost 70% of people with any form of addiction / alcoholism are employed full or part time.
- The 2013 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (PDF | 7.6 MB) found that 68.9% of the estimated 22.4 million illicit drug users, ages 18 or older in the USA, are employed full or part time.
Alcoholism and Addictions of all kinds thrive
in isolation, secrecy, and shame.
There are other valid perspectives
and treatment options in addition to
"The Medical Disease Model"
that help people live free from addiction / alcoholism.
It's time to Break that Silence
- and Stigma -
for the good of everyone!
Zander Townend of Body Wisdom Vitality Strategies
is pleased to offer you and your organization, business, or community group the opportunity to engage in customised 45 - 90 minute "Lunch and Learn" Facilitated Discussions on the topic:
“Breaking the Silence and Stigma
Surrounding Addiction Issues
in the Family, Community and Workplace."
Authentic conversations are at the core of creating change!
Teams often talk about the "surface stuff" without having authentic and supportive conversations.
Having a facilitated discussion helps create a space for psychological safety and inclusion. This helps to break isolation - the kind of isolation that leads to the destructive effects of stress. These effects include reduced profitability, productivity and compromised immune systems and overall health.
Planning for the specific focus of facilitated discussions is collaborative. We work with Human Resource and Employee Assistance professionals, Business Owners, Executive Directors and Community Leaders to customise one or a series of sessions to the needs of your group, to create the greatest possible positive benefits.
