#7016. Millions of people put their faith in the Twelve Steps every day. As a treatment provider, however, you need more than faith: you need proof to show accountability. Research proves that belonging to a Twelve Step Fellowship group increases the chances of long-term recovery from addictions and is also helpful with treating compulsive behaviors and mental health disorders.
Twelve Step Facilitation (TSF) is an evidence-based approach that together with active involvement in a Twelve Step group helps individuals succeed as they move from treatment into recovery. Ideal for those working in community-based, corrections, private practice, and mental health settings, the Twelve Step Facilitation Program is designed for one-to-one individual facilitation sessions, as well as group treatment.
The Facilitator Guide has an introduction that includes a summary of the main points covered in the Twelve Step Facilitation Handbook, step-by-step facilitation instructions for the program facilitator (including suggestions on what the facilitator should say). The Guide includes a DVD with integrated videos to enhance comprehension and a CD-ROM that includes checklists for the sessions (which serve a dual role as measures of treatment fidelity).
Also included are:
- Package of 10 client workbooks
- Set of 25 medallions
Available in October 2017. $445.00 for the program as described above. Also available are: one set of 3 Facilitator Guides (DVD and CD-ROM not included) for $325.00; one Facilitator Guide with DVD and CD-ROM for $345.00; one Facilitation Handbook (without CE test) for $49.95; one Facilitation Handbook (with CE test) for $96.95.
