Today we were able to hold a conference meeting for 50 members of the Association of Depressed Anonymous in Iran this morning. They provided an interpreter for the 1 hour 1/2 meeting and had submitted 12 questions for us to consider and respond. Because of distance and time, their group, using the DA book Manual and Workbook (translated into Farsi) made a very informative meeting for the participants,.
This program has been used in Russia and other locales, as they too have our DA book translated in Cyrillic . The event was a Depressed Anonymous conference via Skype for members of a treatment Center in Siberia. This event had a director of the program who spoke English and translated my English into Cyrillic. It was a very wonderful event to experience.
Anyone , who has access to the Russian DA book, 3rd edition , or the Farsi copy of the DA 3rd edition, can set up a SKYPE conference. Now we have the DA 3rd edition in Spanish and the Dutch editions in paperback format. A person who is fluent in English would be able to communicate with a member of a group conference members will have their questions, comments passed back to us in English
There are two EBooks presently available and which can be downloaded on your computer for a group conversation in your own home region and language. You will provide a translator.
Attention: Depressed Anonymous groups in USA and beyond: If you would like to set up a conference call via SKYPE, please Email us at our office :
Depanon@netpenny.net. Put the word SKYPE in the subject space.
We can visit together about what might be the best way for us to start a group in your area where there is no Depressed Anonymous recovery program available.
NOTE: The least expensive way to purchase these two EBooks is to use the download process. There is a saving of $9.00 USD. There is no charge for postage. Please go to our Depressed Anonymous Publications Bookstore and find information that would explain more about our literature.
