Description of Day 2: “What’s Wellness Got to do with it” Renee Siegel, MA, LISAC, MAC, ICGC-II, BACC, HHP, LMT Course Description: Incorporating wellness practices in medical and behavioral healthcare has grown in recognition as being important. As time goes on, we also have a better understanding of how our body must work collaboratively with our emotions and thoughts to bring healing to our lives. Taking a wellness approach to treatment is also empowering to our patients and clients because they can better realize that their care is in their hands as well as their healthcare practitioners. This leads to patients and clients taking a greater role in their personal responsibility in their healing journey. In this day-long presentation, you will be introduced to one tool that you can incorporate into your work with your clients and patients. With the use of the 12-Dimensional Wellness Wheel with the client/patient as the central dimension, along with a strength-based wellness assessment, the clinician can partner with clients and patients to make deliberate and better choices in the wellness journey. Learning objectives: Participants will better understand the concept of wellness and the benefits of use in their practice. Participants will be introduced to a strength-based wellness assessment. Participants will be able to identify the importance of a multi-dimensional wellness approach to dealing with substance use and gambling or other process addictions.
