CTDCC Training before the end of 2020. What an earth shattering year this has turned out to be, with most of plans for training drastically curtailed and transformed. As everything and everyone went online, CTDCC similarly offered psycho-education on the zoom platform, with some surprising results. While face to face training is sorely missed by us all, online training has made our training more accessible for those who live far away and has attracted members of the public onto our sessions, who have a personal or corporate interest in our fields of expertise. These hard won gains we wish to keep by offering all our training online, even when we are offering face to face training. Or at least we wish to ensure that we continue to provide online training even when are returning to face to face training, so that anyone in the world effectively has access to us. Upcoming workshops include: • Families Facing Addiction: A three hour workshop, specifically for the family members of people who are suffering from Substance Use Disorders or related Addictive Disorders. Bar a few additions and changes, this workshop has been successfully run in Mitchells Plain for families on a regular basis over the past two years. The cost is R150. This is an online workshop. • Motivational Interviewing-The Fundamentals. This is our first face to face workshop after the lockdown.
