12 Step Sponsorship - How It Works
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.
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:
-common questions that sponsors face
-procedural suggestions for leading a newcomer through the Twelve Steps
-general guidelines for becoming an effective sponsor
