SEABROOK, N.J., Dec. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Seabrook House is proud to announce their sponsorship of the free, no-obligation educational seminar "How to Change Someone You Love."
Founder of Intervention Specialists, author of "How to Change Someone You Love" and nationally recognized Board-Registered Interventionist, Brad Lamm (BRI-I, CAI) facilitates the series. The seminar runs each Second Tuesday of the month -- beginning Tuesday, January 13th, 2009 at 6:30pm. Online registration is required; space is limited.
"How to Change Someone You Love" is the outgrowth of Lamm's extensive and life-changing work with family members, co-workers, partners, employers and friends through his intervention practice. People asked for help because they felt powerless in dealing with an addicted loved one. "How to Change Someone You Love" delivers a message that runs counter to the conventional wisdom that you are powerless in the face of a loved one's addiction.
Lamm's confidential educational seminar feature real life stories of how change begins in the life of the addicted, and how friends and family members can claim their own unmatched power in helping move a resistant loved into a plan of change & recovery.
"You are uniquely poised to step in and act with love, passion and purpose," Lamm says. "The person you've been waiting for to help is you, and I just help folks wrangle that power! Give me ninety minutes and I'll help you make real change."
The free seminar is held at a Flatiron District Loft at 7 E. 17th Street, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10003 -- between Broadway and Fifth Avenue. To register please visit www.ChangeSomeoneYouLove.com.
