Teaching in Sacramento
We started at 9 am, and I began my 200-slide PowerPoint about half an hour later. I covered basic facts about LifeRing, such as where the meetings were located and typical characteristics of our membership, and then outlined the 3-S philosophy. I got to the end of the second S by lunch time. It was a good interactive session with just about everyone in the room getting into the discussion and nobody falling asleep.
Both Dr. Davis and I got a lot of thanks at the end, and I got a couple of inquiries about giving the LifeRing talk in other towns. There were people from Vallejo, Petaluma, Yuba City, and other towns plus local Sacramento folks at the session. Our only regrets were that not more people from social services agencies in the city attended, because apparently they were not included on the email lists. We're talking about repeating this training in the spring, this time with broader advance publicity.
