Event description

Description

The goal of this seminar is to present an analysis of the underlying workings of 12 Step Programs to Clinicians who may not be completely familiar with the concepts that are evidenced in the 12 Step Programs seemingly archaic and “God” centered language. We will cover concepts inherent in the CBT work that we therapists do. Then we will explore the various aspects of 12 Step language, slogans, meetings, and the recommendations that are made by one 12 Step member, to another, in their pursuit of literal sobriety and “clean-time”, along with their pursuit of a balanced and happy sober life. In doing so, we will draw the parallels, and differences, between the language and admonitions that are common to the “recovering community” and those concepts and recommendations that we therapists would likely be giving our clients who have addiction issues.
