There are also those who struggle with understanding the true meaning of the steps, spirituality and how the steps should be worked. Gerry has over 23 years recovery experience of working these steps and learning how they should be applied by learning by his mistakes, relapses and pain.

Asset Mapping for Recovery Activists (Nov17)

Where

SRC Offices, Bell Street, Glasgow

When

Friday 24, November 2017 - 10:30

This seminar is for those activists who want to see how the surrounding community can be 'uncovered' and help to build long-term, sustainable, individual & community recovery.

Brian Morgan has much experience in community-led work and has developed an 'edge' to the practice of asset mapping that makes it relevant to recovery.  His belief is that THIS is the day-to-day work of recovery communities.

By doing asset mapping,  we not only help people connect to their passions and interests in community - the process helps make recovery visible!

10 places available

Contact brian@scottishrecoveryconsortium.org to book.
