Achieving Emotional Sobriety

As anyone in recovery from alcohol or drug addiction can attest, life’s challenges don’t magically disappear once you get clean and sober. But you can learn to respond to life’s difficulties in healthier ways by developing emotional sobriety.

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW Topic: 12 Stupid Things That Mess Up Recovery.

To grow in recovery, we must grow up emotionally. This means getting honest with ourselves and facing up to the self-defeating thoughts and actions that put our sobriety at risk. Although there are as many ways to mess up recovery as there are alcoholics and addicts, some general themes exist. Join the Monty’man and cohosts as they look at the “12 Stupid Things That Mess Up Recovery” from the book of the same name by Dr. Allen Berger Ph.D.


Motivational Interviewing: Activating the Healthy Self

As clinicians, we are concerned with how best to help someone who is at a stuck point in their lives. Motivational interviewing has helped clinicians maintain a therapeutic alliance as their patients struggle to find a healthier alternative to what they have been doing. Dr. Berger has developed an ancillary approach to motivational interviewing that helps a patient who is stuck or resistant to change activate a part of themselves that he refers to as the healthy self. Dr. Berger will teach clinicians how to draw out this part of a patient and how to activate the healthy self so it can become a joint contributor to a person’s emotional well-being. LISTEN NOW
