Publisher Comments:

Women's recovery can differ from men's, and each person's recovery is in many ways unique. That's why Stephanie Covington has designed this workbook to help a woman find her own path-and find it in terms especially suited to the way women experience not just addiction and recovery but also relationships, self, sexuality, and everyday life.

Deepening and extending the lessons of a book that has helped countless women, this workbook makes A Woman's Way Through the Twelve Steps that much more measured, meaningful, and clear. Unlike many "rewritten" Twelve Step interpretations for women, this guide works with the original Step language, preserving its spirit and focusing attention on its healing message. In sections devoted to each of the Twelve Steps, Covington blends narrative, self-assessment questions focused on a feminine definition of terms such as "powerlessness" and "letting go," guided imagery exercises, and physical activities.

Designed to be used in conjunction with A Woman's Way Through the Twelve Steps, this workbook helps deepen and extend understanding of the lessons taught there and further empowers each woman to take ownership of her recovery process as well as her growth as a woman.

A clinician and past consultant at the Betty Ford Center, Stephanie S. Covington, Ph.D., L.C.S.W., is the author of A Woman's Way Through the Twelve Steps, Leaving the Enchanted Forest: The Path from Relationship Addiction to Intimacy, and Awakening Your Sexuality: A Guide for Recovering Women.

Synopsis:

Designed to be used in conjunction with A Woman's Way through the Twelve Steps, this workbook helps deepen and extend the understanding of the lessons taught in the book and brings them to life with simple exercises and journaling activities. It further empowers each woman to take ownership of her recovery by documenting her growth and recovery process in a personally meaningful way. Unlike many interpretations of the Twelve Steps for women, this workbook uses the original Steps language, preserving its spirit and focusing attention on its healing message. Covington guides women to reinterpret the Steps to support their own recovery. "When we look inside ourselves and reframe the original wording in the way that works best for us, then each of us, individually, can discover the meaning for ourselves," she writes. In sections devoted to each of the Twelve Steps, Covington blends narrative, self-assessment questions focused on a feminine definition of terms such as powerlessness and letting go, guided imagery exercises, and other experiential activities.

In addition to the book and workbook, two new components--a facilitator's guide for clinicians and a DVD--have been produced to form a complete A Woman's Way through the Twelve Steps program. The four components can stand alone, but together they form a comprehensive, integrated treatment program for women

Synopsis:

The resources here will guide you along a pathway of self-assessment, discovery, and fulfillment.<P>While the author's 1994 book made the Twelve Steps accessible to women, her workbook helps women as individuals take ownership of the recovery process. Written to explore numerous addictive behaviors, this interactive book features self-assessment questions, guided imagery exercises, and relaxation activities.

The first time I encountered, "A Woman's Way Through Recovery the Twelve Steps, was at a woman's meeting last week. I was delighted to read a woman's book that didn't put God in a box. I feel that I can truely believe in a Higher Power of my understanding in this book and do not have to conform my higher power to a limited male figure. This absolutley delighted me for I do not relate to the higher power of the quote norm unquote. I am a very open minded woman with a firm belief of a truely loving, nonjudmental higher power that provides me with the strength that I need. Due to this book, I acutally look forward to my step meetings and can't wait for Tuesday nights. Thank you for writing such a loving, nuturing, book.
