    A Book For Growth as well as Recovery This is the workbook for women who are involved with the Helping Women Recover program, a powerful group-based approach to helping women recover from addictions and traumas of all kinds but mostly focusing upon addiction. It has been around since the 1990s and involves a variety of approaches. This is a very difficult book to review in isolation. It is missing aspects that would make it more complete.

It has been around since the 1990s and involves a variety of approaches. This is a very difficult book to review in isolation. It is missing aspects that would make it more complete. For example, at one point the book references a story which the group would have read and asked for the individual to record their response to it in various ways. That story isn't anywhere in this book, so much of that section wasn't really of any value to a reader. There were other such examples in the book where certain exercises seemed to be dependent on absent material. But, that said, there is a tremendous amount in this book that any woman - any human being - could benefit from. It offers encouragement to self-analysis and exercises - both physical and mental - which can help with issues such as anxiety and low self-esteem. It provides some guided opportunities to reflect on potentially very painful aspects of life and from early relationships and the roles children can take on in dysfunctional families, through to the thorny issue of gender orientation. This is not a self-help book. Any woman (or man) who struggles with addiction or any other mental health issue should reach out to the proper support available for them. But it is a book that could be very helpful to women who are struggling with various issues in life and be a mirror in which to reflect as well as having some useful tools for coping with anxiety and stress. I think anyone reading this with more than skimming attention will take from it something of value that they can keep. And it is not just about aiding recovery, it goes on to look at the future of those in the program, offering ways of enabling any woman to go on to be strong and focused in life It is clearly a book for anyone undertaking the Helping Women Recover program, but others could find it of value too - even if only to gain insight into what kind of activities go on when you engage in any form of group therapy.
