Podcast #89 — Looking for Positive Moments

Our Podcast: Coming Up For Air

Hosts Laurie, Kayla, and Dominique discuss a foundational part of the CRAFT model from module 1: working on your own reactions; looking for positive moments to step in with your loved one, and moments to gently step away. When your loved one is not high or using, you can engage with the person rather than the substance. CRAFT is a long-term process, so allow yourself the patience to try new things, adopt a different orientation, learn new skills, and give a relationship space. This can have a positive impact on the entire dynamic, and a positive influence on your loved one’s choices.
