Keith Greer is a passionate, sought-after Keynote Speaker and Recovery Coach. In addition to working with individuals and families affected by addiction, Keith trains Recovery Coaches at Recovery Coach University. He is also the host of The Helping Conversation Podcast. He believes that a person struggling with Substance Use Disorder is his own best resource, that each person is the expert on their own life and is ultimately capable of designing and charting a direction for their future. Keith sees his clients through a lens of autonomy...he starts where the client is at and is deeply interested in where they want to go from here. Following one of Stephen Covey's principals, he asks his clients to begin with the end in mind and asks where they'd like to see themselves in 3, 6 and 12 months from now. Join Keith Greer as he explains what's involved in co-creating an atmosphere of safety and trust. He normalizes ambivalence. Keith leads us through a series of questions based on motivational interviewing, geared toward helping the client move from a place of pre-contemplation to a place of readiness to move forward in recovery. Keith discusses stigmatizing language that hurts clients and families alike and offers alternatives. He talks about the what's important to know about the complicated suffering involved when working with families affected by addiction. If you are a person struggling to motivate yourself to develop a recovery plan, I suggest that you follow along and answer Keith Greer's questions during this podcast. You'll be amazed at the internal shift you'll feel by the end of the show. If you are a therapist, you'll feel like you've just been to an outstanding motivational interviewing training session and will walk away with a refreshing new way to view and approach clients. Keith will explain what a Recovery Coach has to offer and where to find one.
