Having Hard Conversations: Working with Supervision & Support
An Ethics Training

Wednesday, February 2nd
12pm – 1:30pm
Online / Zoom
Free Training

Training Description: As Recovery Coaches, we’ve all agreed to follow the Code of Ethics and yet, sometimes we can make mistakes. It’s a terrible feeling when we realize we made an ethical mistake, or when we recognize that a colleague did. Come learn some tools to help you navigate the awkwardness and discomfort that can show up in these moments. During this training, we will discuss ways to approach these conversations with your supervisor,  and tools on how to hold yourself, and others, accountable. 

Learning Objectives: 

      Learn language to approach their supervisor with when they have concerns about their own breach of the Recovery Coach Code of Ethics

      Learn language to approach their supervisor with about a colleague’s breach or possible breach of the Recovery Coach Code of Ethics

      Understand and articulate how holding themselves and others accountable to the professional code of ethics is for the benefit of the coach, the coachee, the recovery resource where they work, and the recovery coaching profession as a whole

      Be able to practice being present with the discomfort associated with holding others and oneself accountable to ethical violations
