Twelve Step Sponsorship: Sponsor's Guide to How It Works

by

Twelve Step Sponsorship: Sponsor's Guide to How It Works Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Passing it on is a key concept in the Twelve Step community and many of the traditions and knowledge of the Twelve Step recovery program have been passed down by word-of-mouth from one generation of sponsors to the next. Twelve Step Sponsorship effectively takes this knowledge and tradition and applies it to a working manual for sponsors, guiding them through their role in reaching out and helping new program members.

Designed as a "how-to" program for sponsors, Twelve Step Sponsorship offers:

  • reading assignments
  • common questions that sponsors face
  • procedural suggestions for leading a newcomer through the Twelve Steps
  • general guidelines for becoming an effective sponsor

Twelve Step Sponsorship offers sponsors the first complete handbook for working with a newcomer — from the first meeting through the Twelfth Step and into the years that follow.

Synopsis:

Sponsorship is a rich and enduring part of tradition of Alcoholics Anonymous. Twelve Step Sponsorship delivers both the theory and practice--how to do it and why--in a clear, step-by-step presentation. Written by the author of Getting Started in AA,a widely acclaimed guide for the newcomer to the program of AA, Twelve Step Sponsorship is the first truly comprehensive look at sponsorship, a role recovering people benefit from both as sponsees and ultimately as sponsors. Twelve Step Sponsorship includes informative sections that deal with:
  • Finding a sponsor
  • Being a sponsor.
Twelve Step Sponsorship offers a welcome reinforcement to the tradition of "passing it on" from one generation of sponsors to the next.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 237-244) and index.
