Claiming My Power in Recovery – The First Step For Women
Author: Jeanne Engelmann
Women face special challenges as we recover – issues such as socioeconomics, relationships, abuse, and parenting. In this helpful pamphlet, the author identifies unique attributes of power, control, and powerlessness that help us to take that first step.
“If you are a recovering, chemically dependent woman, you may be able to enhance your recovery by understanding some of the special challenges you will meet. Your economic status, your role as a partner or parent, your feelings about powerlessness and inability to make choices, the possible emotional or physical abuse you suffered as a child or as an adult – all form a complex fabric in which you will find bits and pieces of yourself and your life story.”
