CCM, in partnership with Creative Positive Expression Team, offers a unique opportunity for volunteers to be trained as facilitators for the Creative Positive Expression Program (CPEP). CPEP is a collaborative program for Drug Courtâ€™s adjudicated offenders. This multi-dimensional program of expression, including writing, poetry and art, allows Drug Court participants (adjudicated offenders) to develop and tap into new avenues of expression.
In this interactive, hands on program, you will have the opportunity to explore your own creative side. This program has positively affected the lives of hundreds of Drug Court participants working toward long term recovery and building a future without active addiction.
The operation of Drug Court, and assignment and management of volunteers, is under the oversight of the Drug Court. Volunteers may need to attend sessions during business hours however, there are many opportunities to fit most any schedule.
The course covers the following topics: the physiology and psychology of addiction, Drug Courtâ€™s role and mission, utilizing CPEP techniques for writing topics and graphic art assignments, the Jail Cell Presentation as a prevention tool, responsibilities and activities of a CPEP volunteer. The course material is participatory as well as interactive.
The program, Creative Positive Expression to Support Recovery from Substance Use Disorder, was founded in 2012 by Rebecca Conviser, (DLitt). AHP 164
