If you have clients in 12-step programs, but haven’t integrated these programs into your treatment, you’re missing a chance to find greater therapeutic success and deepen recovery for your clients.
But misconceptions about rigid rules and religious dogma in 12-step programs leave some therapists biased against their effectiveness, feeling uncomfortable discussing their client’s experiences in the program, and struggling to incorporate them into their own treatment plans.
How can you ensure you’re fully prepared to work with all of your client’s experiences, influences and supports to improve treatment outcomes?
Sarah Allen Benton, MS, LMHC, LPC, AADC is a counsellor, addiction expert, recovering alcoholic and author who has been featured in The New York Times and has appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Today Show, and The CBS Early Show.
In this one-day training she’ll teach you how to effectively integrate 12-step programs into your clinical work so you can more fully engage your clients, build a solid therapeutic alliance, and confidently manage 12-step related issues that may arise during the course of treatment. Watch her and discover:
Don’t let your treatment become compartmentalized and leave a pivotal part of your clients’ lives left unaddressed in therapy.
