Tuesday Integrative Addiction Management Evenings
Hans thinks that in these COVID-driven days people should get some extra help.
So every Tuesday @ 19:00 (Amsterdam Time) Hans presents snippets from Interactive Addiction Management. And this week we will be diving into the surfing of craving: urge-surfing (in Dutch “Trek surfen”).
Biological feelings like craving are not that easy to cope. If you only resist those feelings, try to not feel them, try to ignore or if you are only trying to think of anything else, those feelings actually tend to actually grow. Just like an itch. If you try not to scratch that itch, itching only seems to get worse. That is why the feelings-surfing is developed. A technique out of the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) also used in addiction.
It is sometimes a bit hard to understand but my clients always tell me that I do do a good job, so this seems like a good subject for a second “Tuesday Integrative Addiction Management Evening.
If you obey all the rules,
You’ll miss all the fun.
