Helping Women Recover: A Program for Treating Addiction
Facilitator’s Guide and Participant’s Journal
This revised edition of Dr. Covington’s innovative, evidence-based program integrates theories of women’s psychological development, trauma, and addiction to meet the needs of women with addictive disorders. The comprehensive, seventeen-session curriculum contains four modules that address the areas that women in treatment identify as triggers for relapse: self, relationships, sexuality and spirituality. They include the issues of self-esteem, sexism, family of origin, relationships, domestic violence, and trauma. The user-friendly and self-instructive materials are a step-by-step facilitator’s guide and a participant’s journal, entitled A Woman’s Journal, that is filled with self-tests, checklists, and exercises to enable each participant to create a personalized guide to recovery.
