SHE RECOVERS COACH DESIGNATION:
She Recovers Coaching Philosophy
We are committed to growing the She Recovers community so that more women in or seeking recovery from addictions and related life issues can find hope, health and happiness in their lives. Our initial growth strategy is to collaborate with IAPRC to train women as professional recovery coaches.
The 10 Hour She Recovers Coach Designation (SRCD) module invites newly trained IAPRC coaches to learn and adopt the She Recovers philosophy in a way that will be meaningful for them in their lives and in their coaching practice, while adhering closely to the foundational intentions and guiding principles of She Recovers. In addition – SRCD coach students receive practical instruction and support to get started on setting up their recovery coach practices. As soon as you complete their training as a SRCD graduate you will be invited to join the She Recovers Coach Collaborative where you will be encouraged to practice and lead from within the global community of over 260,000 individuals who are already attracted to the She Recovers movement and approach to recovery.
In the She Recovers Coach Designation module you will learn:
- Details about the many different pathways into and through recovery
- The difference between coaching, therapy and sponsorship
- The importance of supporting women to design personalized approaches to their recovery
- The importance of taking a holistic approach to supporting women in recovery (body, mind and spirit)
- The importance of taking a strengths-based (not deficit based) approach with your clients
- How to think through and decide who your ideal clients will be
- How to use social media as an engagement tool to build and grow your practice
- How to plan a workshop in your community to introduce yourself as a new recovery coach
- How you can play an integral part in the She Recovers movement as it expands in communities across North American and beyond
 New SRCD coaches are not authorized to advertise their events as She Recovers events – but as members of the SRCD Coach Collaborative, and upon successful approval of their events by She Recovers, SRCD coaches can request that their coaching events be promoted to the broader She Recovers community.
NEUROSCIENCE OF JOYFUL RECOVERY:
The Power of a Joyful Connection
Recent advances in neuroscience are demonstrating the relational nature of the brain, and the essential role that joy plays in healthy development of the infant and adult brain. These advances describe the effects of addiction on the brain as well as the foundational role that joy plays in recovery.
The experience of joy in the context of relationships powerfully shapes the ways in which the brain is organized and structured. Joy provides the foundation the brain needs to learn how to regulate emotions, pain, pleasure and essential neurotransmitters effectively. Joy is also needed for the brain to develop secure attachments with others throughout life. Joy is the foundation for healthy relationships, emotional regulation and prevention.
In Neuroscience of Joyful Recovery: The Power of a Joyful Connection, you will learn:

FAMILY ISSUES IN RECOVERY:
Releasing the Authentic Self
Discover why “Addiction is not a spectator sport; eventually the whole family gets to play.” Coaches, counselors, teachers, other helping professionals and even family members will learn to view the family affected by addiction as a whole unit with useless strategies trying to cope with the distress and pain of living with active addiction. Identifying patterns of bonding, boundaries, rules, roles and rituals within the coaching relationship can release tremendous insight and bring hope and healing. People who grew up in alcoholic or addicted homes can become resourceful, contributing adults. Self-Discovery is the key for many people to move from struggling in recovery to thriving. Understanding “where we came from” often holds the promise of positive change and recovered possibilities.
