Join us on Friday, December 7th, 2018 at DeNicolas on SE Powell in Portland (in the banquet room) from 7:00 - 9:00pm for community, conversation, snacks and special speakers. This is a great opportunity to meet your fellow travelers in the field, and to learn about what ORCA is doing to support counselors, our profession, and our clients. 

Guest speaker Cordelia Kraus will discuss evidence-based approaches to working with families who have a loved one struggling with addictive behaviors, specifically Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT) and its second evolution, "Invitation to Change." These are options besides Alanon that some clinicians may not know about. Cordelia is a certified CRAFT clinician and holds a weekly SMART Recovery Family and Friends group using CRAFT. Learn more at https://www.cordeliakraus.com/.

This event is for everyone in the field of mental health—whether student or practicing, ORCA member or not. Bring your business cards and a warm handshake for all the counselors you’ll meet!
