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. La recuperación no es un mundo exclusivo de los hombres, pero, a veces, para una mujer parece serlo. Este libro pensado específicamente para esa mujer, trae una perspectiva femenina al programa de los Doce Pasos, descubriendo los mensajes de sanación detrás de las palabras orientadas para los hombres. Basado en una exploración abierta y una interpretación flexible de los Doce Pasos, esta nueva perspectiva toma en cuenta el desarrollo psicológico de las mujeres en lo relacionado a la adicción y a la recuperación, así como también los factores sociales y culturales que afectan a las mujeres en particular. Reconociendo que la recuperación plantea cuestiones sobre temas especiales para la mujer—desde preguntas sobre relaciones sexuales, relaciones, y sobre la vida diaria, a ansiedad para hablar en situaciones donde hay personas de ambos sexos-- La Mujer y su Práctica de los Doce Pasos se enfoca directamente en la experiencia femenina de la adicción y la sanación. El autor explora los Doce Pasos uno por uno, reiterándolos en su language tradicional, explicándolos y mostrándolos para destacar la experiencia de la mujer—capacitando al lector a ser “dueño” de su propio proceso de recuperación así como también de su crecimento como mujer.

Escrita hace veinticinco años, El placer del amor es un compendio de humor y sabiduría, una novela provocadora que no ha perdido un ápice de su actualidad. Un día gris cualquiera, un hombre cualquiera y un vuelo de lo más aburrido entre París y Londres... y de repente, ese hombre levanta la vista y ve a Chloe, su vecina de asiento, una joven de ojos verde agua, hombros quebradizos y uñas mal cuidadas. Cuando el avión aterriza, él ya sabe que esa es la mujer de su vida. Es más: su amor es único y va a ser eterno. A la semana siguiente, los dos cenan juntos por primera vez, y poco después dormirán juntos. Empieza la aclimatación a ese país extranjero que es el cuerpo del ser amado, pero aún no sabemos si este momento mágico tiene mimbres para convertirse en un proyecto de futuro, cabalgando los fastidios de un desayuno donde falta la mermelada que más nos gusta o una cena con los padres de ella. Habrá que esperar... Mientras esperamos y leemos, Alain de Botton pone en tela de juicio ese misterio llamado amor, y en la tarea le ayudan los consejos de grandes intelectuales, empezando por Marx y siguiendo con Voltaire, Oscar Wilde y Camus.

Un íntimo, poderoso e inspirador libro de memorias de la exprimera dama de Estados Unidos. Protagonista de una vida plena y exitosa, Michelle Obama se ha convertido en una de las mujeres más icónicas y cautivadoras de nuestra era. Como primera dama de los Estados Unidos de América, y primera afroamericana en desempeñar esa función, contribuyó a que la Casa Blanca alcanzara sus mayores cotas de apertura y pluralidad de la historia; se erigió en destacada defensora de las mujeres y las niñas en Estados Unidos y en el resto del mundo, introdujo cambios drásticos encaminados a promover una vida saludable y activa en las familias, y acompañó a su esposo cuando el país atravesaba algunos de los momentos más desgarradores de su historia. Por el camino nos enseñó pasos de baile, causó furor en Carpool Karaoke y consiguió criar a dos hijas con los pies en la tierra bajo el implacable escrutinio de los medios de comunicación. En sus memorias, profundamente reflexivas y cautivadoras, Michelle Obama invita al lector a entrar en su mundo relatando las experiencias que han forjado su carácter, desde su infancia en la zona sur de Chicago, hasta los años que vivió en la residencia más famosa del mundo, pasando por su etapa como alta directiva, durante la que tuvo que compaginar la maternidad con la vida profesional. Haciendo gala de una honestidad a toda prueba y de un ingenio vivaz, describe sus logros y decepciones tanto en la esfera pública como en la privada, y narra sin ambages la historia de su vida, con sus propias palabras y en sus propios términos. Cálido, lúcido y revelador, Mi historia es un relato excepcionalmente íntimo de una mujer de gran moralidad y valía, que una vez y otra ha superado todas las expectativas y cuya historia nos inspira a seguir su ejemplo.

With candor and compassion, Stephanie Covington reminds us that recovery "is about living life fully and completely and sexual recovery is integral to the fullness of your life." With comprehensive scope and individual focus, she addresses the following questions: How is women's sexuality shaped by a male-based society? How do dysfunctional families influence a woman's sexuality? What did the sexual revolution do for women? How are women affected by alcohol, drugs, and AIDS? What is the connection between sexuality and spirituality? How can recovery groups address sexual issues? Most important, Awakening Your Sexuality gives women the tools to process their sexual histories, understand their sexual selves, and create the sexual lives they want. Covington provides the personalized exercises and positive, step-by-step guidance women need to confront guilt, shame, or addiction; become aware of body image and behavior patterns; honor and accept the past; and begin the liberating journey of sexual recovery and growth.

Based on the author's more than twenty years of experience focusing on the mental-health issues of chemically dependent women, the Helping Women Recover program is groundbreaking in its recognition of the special needs of women in recovery. Covington has isolated four major areas in a woman's life that need attention for recovery to happen: self, relationships, sexuality, and spirituality, and the program is organized to address each of these complex issues. There is also a special edition of Helping Women Recover for use in correctional settings. The program has two components. The Facilitator's Guide is for use by the practitioner, and it includes, for every group session, a session overview, a suggested script, and in-depth notes. A Woman's Journal is for use by the women outside the group, and it includes exercises and guidelines for processing and writing about life patterns and experiences.
