SKU#: 37

0.4 CEUs PS

(This is Part 2 of a 3-part series) Millions of people have transformed their lives by working the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. Their success, and the interpreters' success, has come from their ability to truly understand these principles. Yet for many practitioners the Steps can seem vague, even confusing.

This practical, no-nonsense guide to interpreting the 12 Steps takes the mystery out of this important keystone of the recovery process, presenting a straightforward explanation of what each step means, as well as examples of how it translates to real life. Presented by David Evans, an experienced sign language interpreter, with more than twenty years of experience, it offers a wealth of wisdom, knowledge, and genuine support for those interpreters that want to understand the recovery process through the use of the 12 Steps.

This is an advanced topic. It is strongly recommended that you view the webcast 'Understanding Alcoholism' before viewing this one.
