Action Plans And Goal Setting Skills from ccsadmin

Every long distance truck driver understands the importance of setting goals on a daily basis. For example, a driver traveling from Missouri to Wisconsin must not only use a map to plan his route, but also realizes he will pass through Chicago along the way. If the driver is wise, he’ll avoid driving through downtown Chicago during rush hour and plan accordingly. If not, he’ll be stuck in traffic for hours, wasting valuable time and fuel. As a trained Recovery Coach, you will do much the same, using an Action Plan based on setting small, easily achievable goals and removing barriers blocking the client’s path to recovery.

Wraparound Services

4 CEUs

"Wraparound" may sound like a new concept, but it is not. The term "wraparound" came into use in 1986, in an article by Lenore Behar*.
