Panel: Chris N., Cindy H., Susan V., Lindy M., Haily R.
Friday, January 7th, 2022
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Members of Al-Anon Family Groups who currently attend Al-Anon meetings on a regular basis in Sonoma County will present their experience, strength, and hope, and explain how the tools of the Al-Anon program powerfully and elegantly cross-fertilize their healing and growth in psychotherapy. They belong to Al-Anon because they have “a friend or relative with the problem of Alcoholism” or other addictions, and this has greatly affected their lives. Two of the presenters will share their personal stories of what brought them to Al-Anon, and how Al-Anon of recovery has helped them. These members find that despite the ups and downs of their loved one’s addiction they have been able “to find serenity and even happiness whether their loved one is drinking or not”. The core tools of the program will be explained, along with tips about referring to Al-Anon.
At the conclusion of the event, participants will be able to:
1. Describe what Al-Anon is, and what Al-Anon is not.
2. Be able to list core tools of the Al-Anon program.
3. Describe how Al-Anon can work in tandem with psychotherapy.
4. Clearly explain how to find Al-Anon groups, and give helpful tips to people approaching Al-Anon for the first time.
