WHAT I LEARNED: 1. I didn’t go to a meeting today, but playing this DVD made me feel like I was in one & I kinda think that’s the point. It’s an outreach DVD that brings the sensibility of a meeting to someone that hasn’t been to one. It has 3 sections for: Al-Anon, Alateen, & Professionals. Most groups I sell this DVD to keep one as a Master Copy to lend out to their members & I know of a few parents that give it to their kids to explain where they go every week.
2. My favorite section is the one for Professionals where they describe how a family comes into their office that has been to meetings versus one that hasn’t. It made me think of my own family & how we would have acted had we gone to group therapy… not good!
**BONUS: This DVD originally came out in 2011, but subtitles in Spanish & French weren’t added until May 2013. So if you need a subtitled version, you have to re-buy the DVD!
