This is my latest book, 12 Hidden Rewards of Making Amends. It is now available! If you have liked my two previous books, 12 Stupid Things that Mess Up Recovery and12 Smart Things to do When the Booze and Drugs are Gone, and found them helpful, you will want to add this book to your collection of recovery resources.
My latest book, 12 Hidden Rewards is divided into two parts. Part I explores both the therapeutic value of AA’s first seven Steps and what it means to work Steps 8, 9 and 10.
Part II discusses the 12 hidden rewards of working Steps 8, 9 and 10. Some of the rewards I are discuss are how Steps 8, 9 and 10 help us stay in closer contact with our experience, teach us how to self-soothe and regulate our emotions, be of value to others, become trustworthy, value the process of being, experience emotional freedom and autonomy in relationships, have healthier relationships based on the principles of “I to Thou,” and several others hidden rewards.
This book is a great addition to my other books which explore the psychological processes inherent in recovery.
