2017 Fall CE Event with Pat Antoniak “Dynamics of Addiction”

Hello BCAPA Members,

We are pleased to announce that we will be holding a One Day Conference with one of our fabulous own… Pat Antoniak RN. BN. RA. EOT. AG-Reg. Reiki and Energy Therapist

Pat has been a huge part in supporting the BCAPA and our members, she is a wealth of knowledge and we are thrilled that she has agreed to share some of her research with us.

It’s not a secret that the West Coast has a serious issue with addictions, while the root in which is grows from may be individual. We as Aromatherapists have tools to aid in the healing journey of those who suffer and have suffered.

That it be the addict or the caregivers, the need for healing is essential and understanding how we can apply our tools will not only benefit us, it will help the healing in our communities, and families.

The following is an outline of the information Pat will be bringing to us…

Dynamics of Addiction:  Caring for the Addicted and Those Affected

Clients having addiction issues can be challenging for both the client and therapist.  Those living and working with the addicted person have concerns, too.  We will explore the dynamics of addiction/withdrawal/recovery and the impact upon the client, therapist and those close to the client. Some of the topics being covered include:  co-dependency issues, family roles and relationships, holistic support during addiction/withdrawal/recovery, physical health concerns, psychological and behavioural defense mechanisms, self-esteem issues.  We will examine how essential oil therapies can benefit the addicted client at each stage of the addiction/withdrawal/recovery process.

Seminar Objectives:

  • Understand the dynamics of addiction using an holistic model of care
  • Identify the major issues confronting a client with addiction issues
  • Identify the major issues confronting those affected by someone else’s addiction
  • Develop an holistic basic care plan for a client with addiction issues
  • Review essential oils and aromatic methods that will assist the addicted client through the addiction/withdrawal/recovery process
  • Explore ways to assist those who are affected by someone with addiction issues
