Using Your Inner Voice to Thrive in Recovery
Most of us are familiar with the inner critic, that voice that tells us that we are not good enough, we are going to fail, or maybe even calls us names. You may think that because this voice is only on the inside of your head, that it’s harmless. When in fact, an unkind inner voice can put you at a higher risk for addiction and relapse. The solution is simple, right? Start speaking to yourself in a kind and supportive manner. The problem is, many of us have barriers to being able to make this shift. It turns out that the inner voice is largely adopted from early childhood caregivers, and speaking to ourselves this way is deeply ingrained. In this session of #MentalHealthMonday, Dr. Phelps will be giving us an overview of how self-compassion and a kind inner voice can be the secret sauce in your recovery, and we will dive into how to create (and practice) our own kind and supportive inner language to bolster your recovery.
Join us LIVE for a Q & A session following the presentation.
