Helping Clients Find Sobriety and Recovery

Despite the American focus of this book, I will recommend this to my students, who are often very confused about how 12-step works and how it is possible to integrate our clients' twelve-step work into our counselling relationship.
I hope this will prove a useful book for helping our Masters level students start to understand how 12 step recovery can fit with their NHS/other agency treatment provision.
The book seems well laid out and is written in an accessible way. There are a few key questions at the end of each chapter to help the reader reflect on & embed the content discussed.
This publication is helpful for students to appreciate how to develop and integrate the 12 step philosophy into their counselling work.
It's written in a very accessable way, and offers interesting points on how to support clients in recovery.
