A 5 hour training event with Jim Wuelfing

8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.)

PRESENTATION:  This workshop will examine the continuum of care (prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery) focusing on prevention and recovery.  After coming to an understanding of these two disciplines, participants will explore where there is commonality in populations, focus, outcomes and goals. The possibility of collaboration will be explored to potentially lay the groundwork of supporting both healthy individuals and healthy communities.  As a result of attending this training participants will be able to:

  • Identify the intersections between prevention and recovery approaches
  • Define common terms used in prevention and recovery
  • Describe a more holistic approach to the continuum of care
  • Describe specific ways in which prevention and recovery practitioners can better support one another

PRESENTER:  Jim Wuelfing is the owner of the New England Center, a company dedicated to quality training and technical assistance services.  Aside from being a national leader in recovery coaching, facilitation of the development of recovery community organizations and in the field of prevention of problem gambling, Jim has many specialties including strategic planning, cultural competency, peer education, community organizing, spiritual growth, and curriculum development. In a consultant capacity, Jim has served as the Director of the Recovery Coach Academy for CCAR (Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery) and as the Prevention and Recovery Consultant for the Massachusetts Council on Compulsive Gambling where he directed the prevention and recovery of problem gambling throughout the Commonwealth.  In 2009, Jim received the inaugural Excellence in Prevention Award from the National Council on Problem Gambling. He was further honored by the National Council when in 2011 the award was named after him – the Wuelfing Prevention Award.  In 2002, he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Massachusetts Association of School Committees for his work in support of children and public education.  Prior to owning his own company, Jim was the Director of Prevention Services and Training Manager for ETP, Inc. for six years and started his career serving as an Assistant Dean and Associate Dean of Student at Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA.  While at Holy Cross, Jim’s work in developing peer education programs was selected as one of six Special Programs of National Interest by the Planning Group of the Network of Colleges and Universities Committed to the Elimination of Drug and Alcohol Abuse with assistance provided by the Office of Educational Research and Improvement, United States Department of Education.
