MOA is proudly hosting the two day intensive training program CCAR Ethical Considerations in Recovery Coaching on August 2nd and August 3rd at Malden High School.  


The issue of ethical consideration has been discussed in many circles yet formal training has been lacking. This two-day training addresses this critical need. Using presentations, small group work, role play and a decision-making matrix many areas will be addressed including: defining the coaching service role and functions, coaching standards, issues of vulnerability and ethical decision making.


* Understand what ethics are and why ethics are so important

* Performing Recovery Coach Services

* Learn how to stay in your lane as a Recovery Coach

* Understand the decision-making process

* Develop guidelines for making ethical decisions

* Apply the new learning to your everyday work as a Recovery Coach

Note: There is no prerequisite for this class, but the material will review themes that will be familiar to graduates of the CCAR Recovery Coach Academy.
