Join us for the first CoP in a new series that will focus on the role of recovery coach as advocate:
Navigating Pathways of Advocacy
This CoP, From Interpersonal Violence to Safety, will focus on signs that a person may have experienced interpersonal violence, how to initiate a conversation about such violence, when and how to refer people, safety concerns, and the recovery coach’s perspective on addressing interpersonal violence.
