Overview

Includes both the book and workbook of A Woman's Way Through the Twelve Steps

Recovery is not a man's world, and yet to a woman it can sometimes seem that way. Geared specifically to women, this book and workbook collection bring a feminine perspective to the Twelve Step program, searching out the healing messages beneath the male-oriented words.

Based on an open exploration and a flexible interpretation of the Twelve Steps, this perspective takes into account the psychological development of women as it relates to addiction and recovery, as well as the social and cultural factors that affect women in particular. Acknowledging that recovery raises special issues for women--from questions about sexuality, relationships, and everyday life to anxieties about speaking up at mixed-gender meetings--A Woman's Way through the Twelve Steps focuses directly on the feminine experience of addiction and healing.

Author Stephanie Covington explores the Twelve Steps one by one, reiterating each in its traditional language, then explaining and illustrating it in a way that highlights a woman's experience--empowering the reader to take ownership of her own recovery process as well as her growth as a woman.

The 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 that help women document their growth and recovery process in a personally meaningful way.
