Developing Competencies for Recovery aims to help people struggling with addiction realize recovery by developing core competencies that will equip, enable, and empower them to master addiction, live well, and do good.
Competencies are clusters of related knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSAs) that prepare a person to act effectively and reflect cognitive, affective, and psychomotor domains of learning. This book provides a cutting-edge guide to recovery by clearly depicting these core competencies in a manner that will prepare the reader with the ability to clearly understand and develop a course of action on how to manage recovery successfully. The first section of each chapter presents facts, concepts, principles, and theories about a particular competency, and it shares real stories about real people and their own recovery journeys. The following section suggests applications of the competency with questions, worksheets, exercises, and projects. In the final section, readers can evaluate their recovery work and competency development. Resources for recovery and references can be found at the end of the book.
Behavioral health practitioners and instructors and students of addiction studies will find this book a best-practice template for recovery work.
