  • New tools to use, consolidating structure to the way I work already.† Helped me get back my confidence in my ability as a drugs worker.
  • Looking at different approach to service delivery, increasing the practitionerís toolbox of approaches to deliver in promoting change and movement through the services.† Excellent, informative, thought provoking, refreshing.
  • Excellent, broad over arching model of treatment delivery with sufficient flexibility for component parts to be incorporated into existing practice.† All good stuff.† Will use Functional Analysis and Life Audit to inform care planning, and overall rating scales for one-to-one relapse prevention key worker sessions.
  • Everything! Reaffirmed my own beliefs about an action/activity approach to treatment.† Found CRA training a help to my own motivation and inspiration to assess my own practice.
  • This was a thorough grounding in the philosophy and psychology behind the CRA approach. One of the best training events I have ever been on.
  • The whole training was useful, interesting, dynamic and thoroughly enjoyable. It was particularly interesting learning about the meaning of recovery and the CRA techniques. The most enjoyable training I have ever undertaken.
  • Formalising the Dependence/Addiction model. Focussing on bringing client evaluation/ feedback into a treatment programme. Detailing the CRA multi-approach. Superb and engaging. Actually feel inspired to go back and implement many of the ideas.
