Response to Overturning of Roe v Wade (July 2022)

NPI is developing resources for our members in response to the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe V Wade.  Both clients and practitioners are dealing with strong emotional reactions (on both sides of the issue) and confusion over the state of the law in Tennessee.  As psychotherapists, our intention is to hold space for people in a way that is trauma-informed, reduces stigma, supports non-judgmental decision-making, and provides accurate information.  We also need to be aware of any potential impact on our practice.

Here are a few websites that can help you with accurate information.

Self-Management And Recovery Training (SMART) is a global community of mutual-support groups. At meetings, participants help one another resolve problems with any addiction (to drugs or alcohol or to activities such as gambling or over-eating). Participants find and develop the power within themselves to change and lead fulfilling and balanced lives guided by our science-based and sensible 4-Point Program®. There is no charge to participate.

In The Rooms is a free online recovery tool that offers 130 weekly online meetings for those recovering from addiction and related issues. We embrace multiple pathways to recovery, including all 12 Step, Non-12 Step, Wellness and Mental Health modalities.

Many of you are familiar with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and have likely been using ACT principles to address the emotional response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Russ Harris, ACT practitioner and author of The Happiness Trap, has developed a free eBook on using ACT to approach the COVID-19 outbreak using the acronym FACE COVID.
