Founder of the Institute for Staged Recovery in New York City and creator of "Authentic Process Therapy," Picucci is an addictions counselor who bases his methods primarily on personal experience. In this updated edition of his self-published Complete Recovery, Picucci describes a "Stage Two" recovery program for evolving beyond freedom from addictions to "holism," which encompasses joy, bliss, love, empowerment, creativity, respect for all life, and peace. Picucci makes an interesting distinction between recovery from addictions and childhood traumas" and "recovery of fulfillment, wisdom, serenity, and emotional, spiritual and sexual wholeness. Using a structure of 12 stations, which can be visited and revisited in any order as often as needed, he guides readers through six fundamental and six emergent modules of this process for healing the "spiritual-sexual split" and the "cultural pain... of oppressed minorities," and ultimately achieving the "shame-free presentation of self." Picucci says he offers "nothing less than a re-birthing process" through a combination of one-on-one psychotherapy, support groups and spirituality. His own life experiences as a gay man, once married, now HIV positive, surviving AIDS, cancer, a heart attack, triple-bypass surgery and drug and alcohol addictions give him a uniquely credible perspective on healing and wholeness. In his cogent, well-organized handbook, Picucci functions a bit like the gay shamans who had a special place in North American Indian tribes. His compassionate acceptance of diversity will inspire many readers to care to take the next step and seek the help they need.

Almost 40 percent of the U.S. population suffers from some form of depression or mental illness yet the causes of mental illness remain largely a mystery. The prevailing theory sees the cause as a trans-generational genetic defect of brain chemistry, which is best treated with medication. New breakthroughs made by health professionals dislodge this theory, and show that frequently previous traumas are what lead to mental illness. In this bold new book, renowned physician and psychotherapist Charles Whitfield takes a new look at the common problems of depression, anxiety, addictions, eating disorders, schizophrenia and other mental illness. The Truth About Depression shows the strong and at times causal relationship between childhood trauma and future depression and other mental illness; he explores the risks, side-effects and high cost of treating these disorders with anti-depressant drugs, and; provides an alternative treatment and recovery program for people with depression and a history of childhood trauma. Dr. Whitfield’s book offers hope and help for those who have been held hostage by depression, and provides clinicians with new solutions and alternatives to high-risk medications.

Throughout our life, at each moment, from each conflict that arises throughout every day, we are given the power to choose. We all face challenges in our relationships and Dr. Whitfield gives us the secret to meeting each challenge and how to make the best choice when faced with hard decisions and irrational emotions. Using the same questions he has asked his patients, Dr. Whitfield asks readers: Do you choose to protect your point of view, your position, and your ego's limited perceptions? Or do you choose humility: open-mindedness, curiosity, and tolerance? Do you choose to play the victim, to persecute or to rescue? Or do you choose humility: to motivate, nurture, and empower? Do you choose separation, or through humility, inclusion? These are the lessons taught in The Power of Humility. Simple, easy to understand, yet life changing, Dr. Whitfield teaches us that by accepting our "humility" we invite peace, love, joy, and gratitude into our life and our relationships. Key Features Patient stories provide the reader with specific examples on the power of humility. Takes readers through the separate steps in identifying humility throughout their lives. Tie in to reissue of Dr. Whitfield’s million copy classic Healing the Child Within.
