As human beings, we are biologically wired for connection. For individuals in recovery from trauma and addictions, deeper contact with others holds even more significance to promote healing and sustainable sobriety. In this webinar, attendees will explore a fresh, new perspective on emotional sobriety skills to reinforce long-term healing. Developing secure attachments is not the goal; breaking down barriers that get in the way of secure attachments is the key. Addiction thrives on isolation, shame and secrecy, and to diminish the stigma, this presentation looks at longstanding recovery through the lens of Nervous System Regulation, Positive Psychology and Attachment Theory. Addictive, compulsive behaviors stem from brokenheartedness, and establishing emotionally-reliable relationships mends broken hearts while developing purpose and meaning.Andrew Susskind is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Somatic Experiencing and Brainspotting Practitioner and Certified Group Psychotherapist based in West Los Angeles since 1992 specializing in trauma and addictions. He serves as faculty for the Principles of Group Psychotherapy Course, taught residents in the UCLA School of Medicine Doctoring program and mentored associates in his private practice from 1997-2020. His recent book, It’s Not About the Sex: Moving from Isolation to Intimacy after Sexual Addiction (Central Recovery Press, June 2019) joins his workbook, From Now On: Seven Keys to Purposeful Recovery which was released in 2014.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe how nervous system regulation supports sobriety.
  2. Identify three Emotional Sobriety skills.
  3. Distinguish between Early Sobriety and Emotional Sobriety.
