Conducted by noted author, teacher and interventionist Brad Lamm, Certified Intervention Professional (CIP), BreakFree Intervention skills training equips participants to understand the history and methods of various addiction intervention models as compared to Brad Lamm’s proprietary invitation to change method, which pairs a loving family-infused intervention with a long-term family recovery curriculum.
This model is set alongside Kathleen Murphy’s action-method approach to trauma-informed treatment. Through education, case studies and role-play rich training, participants learn how to intervene using this cutting edge approach to initiating Family Recovery.
The BreakFree training has changed the direction of my practice. An Invitational Intervention is the foundation that I have been looking for, and it aligns beautifully with my core values. The training was a game changer. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experiences.
I enjoyed my time at the training and left feeling excited about applying what I had learned.
Engaging educationally and in a training mode, but also the presenters are fascinating.
It is truly amazing that Brad is willing to share his expertise so comprehensively. This is a ground up to full speed training that will allow the student to hit the ground running with their own intervention enterprise. You won’t find a more valuable training from a true leader in the industry anywhere.
I am thrilled to have been part of Brad Lamm’s intervention training. The valuable tools learned will enable me to be a better interventionist in the field.
This training was a life-changing event for me and helped me to develop more passion to connect with and help those that are suffering and their families. Thanks Brad and Kathleen.
Teaching methods, generosity in personal stories and light hearted energy around the material was achieved with a perfect balance.
Absolutely incredible training that gave me added skills as well as the confidence to help others in a more positive and supportive way.
Breakfree is a love-based intervention training that will teach you a new way of approaching families and loved ones in times of crisis.
Brad Lamm is a consummate professional. His Breakfree Intervention skills training course was outstanding!
Brad and Kathleen are amazing and do such an amazing job at explaining and simplifying this process to make it easily digestible.
