Presented by Dr. Amy R. Krentzman, MSW, PhD. “Gratitude” is a frequent topic in recovery circles, a recurrent theme in recovery program literature, and a central component of addiction recovery for many recovering people. This presentation will provide definitions of gratitude proposed by social scientists, present scientific findings about the benefits of gratitude, cover theories for the ways in which gratitude “works” (in general and in recovery), and ponder whether gratitude has a “downside.” Together we will practice at least two gratitude exercises. Part of the Dawn Farm Education Series. Free, open to all.
