Wickenburg, AZ (PRWEB) July 19, 2012
The Meadows Alumni Association is pleased to host a monthly alumni workshop in Houston, Texas, for alumni, family and friends on July 24, 2012, from 7:00 to 8:30pm. Cara Weed, LCSW, a Meadows’ trained professional, will lead the discussion on “Boundaries.” It will be held at The Council on Alcohol and Drugs and no registration is required to attend.
Cara Weed’s private practice in Houston has encompassed the treatment of individuals, couples, and groups for a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, and relationship problems. Although she incorporates many approaches in her work, her focus remains the treatment model developed by Pia Mellody, senior clinical advisor for The Meadows Wickenburg.
“I discovered Pia Mellody's work on codependence and since my initial training in 1999 with her, I have frequently spoken publicly on her model of codependence and love addiction for The Meadows. I have conducted empowerment groups, love addiction recovery groups and relationship workshops—all of which focus on healing various degrees of childhood trauma underlying adult dysfunction,” Weed said. “I am committed to utilizing this groundbreaking work to assist people who are either in recovery or who just want to enhance the quality of their lives.”
Additional alumni workshop dates will be announced in the future. For more information, contact Betty Ewing Dicken, LCDC, at 972.612.7443 or bdicken(at)themeadows(dot)com or visit http://www.themeadows.com/alumni.
