Webinar: CHIME IN! Possibilities for a Positive Recovery Framework to Enhance Smoking Cessation Efforts 

Friday, June 26, 2020

Daniel Knoblach, Ph.D. Post-doctoral Fellow VA Medical Center, Baltimore, MD 

Quitting smoking is difficult, and even more challenging for people with co-occurring health conditions. A possible consequence of many failed attempts is a growing sense of hopelessness and shame. By placing more focus on positive, recovery-oriented themes, and less on symptom reduction, providers can invite their clients to consider what really matters throughout a smoking cessation effort. C.H.I.M.E.’s focus on Connection, Hope, Identity, Meaning in Life, and Empowerment offers a transdiagnostic, recovery-oriented framework that can assist in relapse prevention, while prioritizing quality of life. This innovative webinar will invite attendees to consider CHIME’s potential applications in broadening their smoking cessation programming.
