about

Geared specifically to women, this book brings a feminine perspective to the Twelve Step program, searching out the healing messages beneath the male-oriented words.

Recovery is not a man's world, and yet to a woman it can sometimes seem that way. Geared specifically to that woman, this book brings a feminine perspective to the Twelve Step program, searching out the healing messages beneath the male-oriented words. Based on an open exploration and a flexible interpretation of the Twelve Steps, this new perspective takes into account the psychological development of women as it relates to addiction and recovery, as well as the social and cultural factors that affect women in particular.Acknowledging that recovery raises special issues for women--from questions about sexuality, relationships, and everyday life to anxieties about speaking up at mixed-gender meetings--A Woman's Way through the Twelve Steps focuses directly on the feminine experience of addiction and healing. The author explores the Twelve Steps one by one, reiterating each in its traditional language, then explaining and illustrating it in a way that highlights a woman's experience--empowering the reader to take ownership of her own recovery process as well as her growth as a woman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great recovery tool. I sponsor a number of women in AA and I have found that this book and her workbook are just the type of recovery tool some women need. The basic recovery books won't work well with some women.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A much needed book Covington's book is an excellent tool for women recovering from alcoholism and other addictions. Recent research has shown that women have issues in recovery that are unique to their gender. Using the 12 step approach, Covington, covers issues of self esteem, relationships and sexuality from a recovering woman's perspective.
