In this 100-minute webcast, which closes out the three-part series on alcoholism from David Evans, attention will be given to the types of meetings held by Alcoholics Anonymous, what transpires at these meetings, and what helpful information interpreters need to know before interpreting at such meetings. Viewers will learn about how such meetings are opened and closed, special terminology and various themes prevalent throughout Alcoholics Anonymous.
The viewer will have the opportunity to learn more about AA meetings in their own locality, practice interpreting part of a talk from an actual AA speaker, and prepare to handle a wide variety of interpreting assignments involving AA.
To derive the greatest benefit from this webcast, it is best viewed after Parts 1 & 2, namely, Understanding Alcoholism* and How Does it Work? – Interpreting the 12 Steps*, though this is not required.
Presented in ASL.
