Many Roads, One Journey: Moving Beyond the 12 Steps

About the Course:

While Dr. Kasl illuminates the failings of traditional 12-step programs, she builds on the underlying wisdom of the programs, adapting them to clients with varying worldviews, sources of strength, and conceptions of the Divine. This book offers a sound alternative for helping clients who find 12-step programs incompatible with their belief system.
