2) An interactive empathy activity
3) Develop an understanding of relapse prevention theory

Click below to join the Teams meeting on May 19th at noon. The presentation should run from 12:00-1:30, but 30 additional minutes have been added to leave room for questions. If you have a webcam/mic it will be great to “see” you, but if not you can join with speakers/headphones and a keyboard.
Please see the attached article on Relapse Prevention Theory for you to take a look at prior to the event. Please have a pen and paper ready for the interactive portion of this webinar.
