About the 5-Day Advanced RPT Training

Terry Gorski developed the Advanced RPT Training for clinicians to better address the relapse process and increase support for their relapse prone patients. Ranked among the most comprehensive and effective trainings for behavioral health professionals, RPT is for those who wish to advance their clinical skills through an evidenced-based approach. 

Training participants will utilize their current skills and integrate them with powerful techniques to help their clients identify and manage high risk situations as well as core personality and life-style warning sign patterns that lead to the re-occurrence of alcohol and other drug use in the critical early stages of the recovery process. 

Participants will learn how to teach their clients/patients to:

  • Develop an RPT Treatment Plan – personalizing the standard treatment plan for RPT.
  • Build Conceptual Pyramids- develop a conscious way of thinking and problem solving that describes each problem.
  • Actively Listen – a communication process to increase understanding and remain engaged.
  • Recognize and lower stress through Relaxation Response Techniques and how to Bookmark Hot Issues that activate stress-related defensiveness.

 Participants will learn how to teach their clients/patients how to use standard procedures in groups (or individual) sessions that help them stay on track and engaged in treatment with segments on Group Opening, Presentation, and Closure Procedures.

Participants will learn how to teach their clients/patients how to identify and clarify their Presenting Problems, review their Life and Addiction History, and Recovery and Relapse History to understand the core pattern of personality and lifestyle problems that created pain and problems and how to make a commitment to complete the RPT process.

Participants will learn how to teach their clients/patients to identify, examine, understand, relate, and manage Warning Signs that can lead to relapse through segments on: Warning Sign Review, Initial Warning Sign List, Warning Sign Analysis, Final Warning Sign List and Critical Warning Signs, and Warning Sign Management.

Participants will learn how to teach their clients/patients Recovery Planning including how to develop a schedule of recovery activities that can support the ongoing identification and management of the core personality and lifestyle problems that lead to relapse.
