Our first guest is Susanne Bargmann, co-founder of the International Center for Clinical Excellence, who will be talking to us about Client Directed Outcome Informed therapy (CDOI). CDOI develops clients' strengths rather than telling them that they are powerless.


Our second guest is Kristin Neff who will be discussing her book Self Compassion. Standard substance abuse treatment programs tell people to beat themselves up and call themselves powerless and losers and the result is relapse, depression, and sometimes even suicide. All too often people abuse substances because they are too hard on themselves and can use a great dose of self compassion to help them to make changes for the better.
