Employability and Mentoring

Ref: C3846373

The use of standard literature in methods of Recovery from Substance Misuse is well documented. Our groups have found that studies involving both the A.A. Big Book and Chinese literature, specifically the I Ching, to be especially beneficial and this course will be primarily centred around the use of these.. We use mentoring and study as our foundation for personal and group development. Practically, our training includes discussion and practice regarding employability especially for the long term unemployed members. This first course is practically aimed at providing a mentoring system and a social structure to support these areas.
