A Step-by-Step Guide to a Powerful Process for Healing Women with Addiction While there is a wealth of material available for the treatment of addiction, most of the information is based on research focused on men-not women. Helping Women Recover fills this void and offers a program specifically designed to meet the unique needs of women who are addicted to alcohol and other drugs. The Helping Women Recover program offers counselors, mental health professionals, and program administrators the tools they need to implement this healing process in group therapy settings or with individual clients. "A clear and comprehensive guide. Covington provides addiction professionals with a precise and detailed curriculum based on her knowledge, caring, and years of experience addressing the special needs of addicted women."—Monessa Overby, vice president, clinical services, Betty Ford Center "An excellent tool for integrating women's issues with relapse prevention therapy. Helping Women Recover is practical, easy to use, and helps guide clinicians to work on the deeper recovery issues with addicted women."—Terence T. Gorski, founder, clinical director, National Relapse Prevention Certification School "A well-written, thorough, eminently practical, and wise curriculum for all women-therapists and clients, teachers and students. She combines a deep understanding of female psychology with the realities of male-oriented culture to create a supportive model that emphasizes positive self-exploration and discovery. Covington provides a detailed teaching map-what to say, when, and why. Novice and experienced counselors can run with this outstanding plan. Underlying the text is the assurance that the author understands women, what safety means to them, how important it is as a base for healing, and how to achieve it."—Stephanie Brown, director, The Addictions Institute and author of Treating Alcoholism "A comprehensive, practical, and extraordinarily valuable guide for anyone involved in creating, implementing, or facilitating women's treatment programs."—Janet L. Surrey, founding scholar, Jean Baker Miller Training Institute, Stone Center, Wellesley College "Helping Women Recover is vital to our work with the chemically dependent female-and there is no one who understands gender-specific work better than Stephanie Covington!" —Claudia Black, author of It Will Never Happen to Me "Helping Women Recover is an exciting curriculum for women in which the facilitator is given clear and detailed instructions. To participate in these sessions would be a healing and revealing experience."—Anne Geller, associate professor of clinical medicine, Columbia University and past president, American Society of Addiction Medicine

Based on the author's more than twenty years of experience focusing on the mental-health issues of chemically dependent women, the Helping Women Recover program is groundbreaking in its recognition of the special needs of women in recovery. Covington has isolated four major areas in a woman's life that need attention for recovery to happen: self, relationships, sexuality, and spirituality, and the program is organized to address each of these complex issues. There is also a special edition of Helping Women Recover for use in correctional settings. The program has two components. The Facilitator's Guide is for use by the practitioner, and it includes, for every group session, a session overview, a suggested script, and in-depth notes. A Woman's Journal is for use by the women outside the group, and it includes exercises and guidelines for processing and writing about life patterns and experiences.

Many women who free themselves from violent domestic situations experience symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) long after they achieve physical and emotional safety. A ringing telephone or a crowded city street threatens a potential encounter with their abuser. People they care for seem far away, and things they used to enjoy offer neither pleasure nor relief. Their long, sleepless nights drag on. If you've freed yourself from an abusive relationship but still suffer from its effects, this program of trauma recovery techniques can help you take back your peace of mind. Based on a clinically proven set of techniques called cognitive trauma therapy (CTT), the exercises in this workbook will help you address feelings of guilt, anger, depression, anxiety, and stress. You'll learn how to break down the negative thoughts that might be cycling in your mind and how to replace them with positive, constructive affirmations. Later in the program, you'll be guided through controlled exposure to abuse reminders, which will enable you to face the fears you might otherwise spend a lifetime avoiding. The program begins and ends with techniques for becoming your own best advocate--an informed, confident person with all the strength you need to create the secure, fulfilling life you deserve. Recognize the effects of trauma on your life Let go of anger, stress, shame, and guilt Change core beliefs that can lead to involvement in abusive relationships Confront and overcome your fears Dispel feelings of helplessness Avoid future involvement with potential abusers

The activities inside reinforce program lessons about anger and violence, including how families, relationships, communities, and society affect one's life.

This workbook will help guide participants through the program, reinforcing the discussions held in session. Topics include: The effects of trauma Relationships and communication, control, and conflict The importance of safety and the power of community Self-transformation, and creating change The workbook also includes a Daily Anger Log, a Self-Reflection Tool, and list of yoga poses that can have a calming effect on both body and mind.

The End of Men

And the Rise of Women

“You have to…play by the rules so you can get to the top and change things.” -- Sheryl Sandberg A landmark portrait of women, men, and power in a transformed world Men have been the dominant sex since, well, the dawn of mankind. But Hanna Rosin was the first to notice that this long-held truth is, astonishingly, no longer true. At this unprecedented moment, by almost every measure, women are no longer gaining on men: They have pulled decisively ahead. And “the end of men”—the title of Rosin’s Atlantic cover story on the subject—has entered the lexicon as dramatically as Betty Friedan’s “feminine mystique,” Simone de Beauvoir’s “second sex,” Susan Faludi’s “backlash,” and Naomi Wolf’s “beauty myth” once did. In this landmark book, Rosin reveals how this new state of affairs is radically shifting the power dynamics between men and women at every level of society, with profound implications for marriage, sex, children, work, and more. With wide-ranging curiosity and insight unhampered by assumptions or ideology, Rosin shows how the radically different ways men and women today earn, learn, spend, couple up—even kill—has turned the big picture upside down. And in The End of Men she helps us see how, regardless of gender, we can adapt to the new reality and channel it for a better future.

A Woman's Addiction Workbook

Your Guide to In-depth Healing

Author: Lisa Najavits

Publisher: New Harbinger Publications Incorporated

ISBN: 9781572242975

Page: 210

Women and girls are now becoming addicted at greater rates than ever before, and until very recently women in recovery were dependent on treatment models based solely on work with men. Harvard addiction and trauma expert Lisa M. Najavits offers this step-by-step program to help women overcome the often-overlooked problems associated with their drug and alcohol addictions, such as body image, trauma and violence, relationships, stress, and thrill-seeking. She explores how women differ from men in their addiction and recovery, and adapts this information to help you embark on your journey to healing. A chapter on co-occurring emotional problems allows you to evaluate whether you have any of the key disorders common among women with addiction, such as depression, post-traumatic stress, eating disorders, or phobias. With this strengths-building workbook, begin to come to terms with your personal addiction story. Healing exercises in four areas--feelings, beliefs, action, and relationships--help women build self-respect. Exercises include "Listen to That Small Quiet Voice," "Extreme Self-Care," "Self-Soothing," "Become Friends with Women," "Rethink," "Take Charge," "Share Responsibility," and "Mourn." In addition to these exercises and techniques, the book offers valuable resources of recovery support information.
