The Real Thirteenth Step is a powerful exercise and information-packed manual to accompany the journey of people in recovery. Readers will learn how to develop the three central skills of true autonomy—risk taking, problem solving, and coping with failure—and how to apply them to every aspect of their lives: relationships, work, decision-making, stress, and the temptations of addiction.
Discover the six steps necessary to create real inner change: techniques so powerful, they‘re called "magical tools." These tools are taught through exercises proven in therapy and workshops to help clients gain control of their lives and remain free of relapse. With the exercises and guidelines in this book, readers can learn what they need to complete their recovery and achieve self-confidence and autonomy. Dr. Tessina invites you to move beyond recovery to a satisfying life of joy and healthy relationships.
