Al-Anon provides a synergistic effect

Written by  Kevin Blanchard, MSW, LICSW

Al-Anon meetings cultivate the ability to listen, as people begin to differentiate between what they expect to hear and what is actually being said. Given that therapy is about helping clients interrupt negative early childhood messages as to who they are and what they can expect of others, Al-Anon provides a synergistic effect when used in conjunction with psychotherapy.
