Natural Lifemanship™ for Individuals and Agencies Supporting People in Recovery from Substance Use and Addictions

We provide trainings in trauma-informed mental health care to those who work in the addictions and substance use disorder fields.

Efforts to support individuals in recovery are greatly enhanced by learning how substance use and addiction affect and are affected by the brain, how trauma increases risk for addiction, and how healthy, connected relationships facilitate recovery. You will:

  • Learn about the need for trauma-informed and developmentally sensitive care for people in recovery from substance use disorders and addiction.
  • Understand the neurobiology of addiction patterns and ways these patterns develop.
  • Recognize the links between learning, relationships and addiction.
  • Discover how the empowering Natural Lifemanship™ (NL) relationship principles will enable you to intentionally build relationships that will positively impact the recovery process for people in your care.

Come to both trainings! Gain knowledge and understanding at the introductory training and deepen your learning during a subsequent two-day workshop where you will experience and practice the principles first hand with the help of horses!

Introduction to Natural Lifemanship’s Trauma Informed Care for Substance Use and Addictions Recovery is a 3 1/2 hour training consisting of mostly lecture with opportunities for questions and discussion.

Natural Lifemanship’s Trauma Informed Care for Substance Use and Addictions Recovery is a two-day training devoted to experiential learning and application of what was learned during the introductory training. You will be able to observe and practice applying NL principles in groundwork with a horse.
