Event Details

Why is hope essential? Hope is the catalyst of the recovery process. It is the expectant belief that recovery is real and provides the motivating message of a better future – that people can and do overcome the barriers and obstacles that confront them. We will explore how hope can be internalized and fostered during goal setting and problem solving. In this workshop, we will separate hope from self-efficacy and optimism as we discuss how psychosocial development stages affect hope fostered during early childhood attachment. We will dive into the depths of “low hope thinking and “high hope thinking as we focus on your own personal history of hope and goals that are most conducive to hopeful thinking.
