Counseling Center Workshop: Christopher Beckman: Still Clean

Posted on 3/29/2013 9:07:01 AM

This workshop will be held on Monday, April 1, 2013, from 5:15–6:15 p.m. at Suites on Maple East, G-60 (Center for Health and Well-Being).

Christopher Beckman: Still Clean

Please come or refer students to come.

Catapulted into the national spotlight when he was only 24, artist and former Ralph Lauren model Christopher Beckman’s substance abuse and his homosexuality were tabloid fodder during his stint on MTV’s Real World Chicago. Sober for 12 years now, Beckman will lead a workshop candidly discussing his struggles with addiction, his recovery, and how he deals with the “real world” today in an environment constantly surrounded by temptation. He will share his story—documented in his book Clean: A New Generation in Recovery Speaks Out—and share insights into his future projects, including the book’s sequel, Still Clean.

This workshop will be of great benefit to anyone wanting to better understand addictions and counseling of those in recovery. With ample time for Q&A, this is one of several activities scheduled during Beckman’s April visit to IUP.
