• Addiction and Mental Health issues are strongly correlated with:

• Adverse childhood experiences (history of and children with)
• Impaired occupational and social functioning

Contextual Approaches
• Encourage mindfulness in the present moment
• Accept each person’s “truth” is constructed from their schema and the resulting interpretation of the current moment
• The goal is to consider the context and function of the past and present issue and empower the person to make a conscious choice toward their valued goals

• REpeat
• REdo
• REgress
• RElapse

Childhood Context and Development
