This webinar will explore the use of community asset mapping as a strengths-based approach to identifying the human, material, entrepreneurial and other resources in the community that support a life in recovery for everyone. Participants will learn how to tap into underutilized resources and bring people together for a common cause. This interconnectedness begins on the individual level and expands to the neighborhoods and communities where people live, including identifying the natural helpers so vital to sustaining long-term recovery.
One hour of NAADAC CEs available for each webinar
