Professional help for people helping those in recovery

The U.S. Journal Training (USJT) in association with the National Association for Children of Alcoholics (NACoA) have teamed together to bring you yet another extraordinary celebration and honoring of adult children & recovery.

This 4-day enlightening and empowering event allows participants to explore contemporary issues as well as share personal stories regarding experiences in recovery.

People in recovery and helping professionals will not want to miss this rare opportunity to connect with the leaders of the adult children movement including: Robert Ackerman, PH.D, John Bradshaw, M.A., Stephanie Brown, Ph.D., Tian Dayton, Ph.D., Rokell Lerner, David Mee0Lee, M.D., Jane Middelton Moz, M.S., Jerry Moe, M.A.

Participants will learn:-To examine current clinical science based intervention and treatment strategies for helping adult children of addiction and other trauma.

To discuss the importance of spirituality, resilience, and forgiveness in the recovery process.

To interpret how anger, shame, grief, loss, depression, and low-self esteem inhibit the recovery process.

To discuss current clinical approaches to counseling co-occurring disorders, family systems treatment, and understanding the role of cultural consideration in recovery.

To demonstrate experiential techniques for identifying the impact of family dysfunction on human development from childhood through adulthood.

Day rates are available for those not able to attend the entire conference. Continuing Education Credits are available for psychologists. For more information, conference rates and/or registration, contact: US Journal Training: or (800) 441-5569.
