Beverly Conyers, a prominent voice in recovery, uses personal stories and informed insight to guide you in achieving emotional sobriety by addressing behaviors and feelings unique to the female recovery experience. Your old, destructive lifestyle is fading into the past and now you are a woman in recovery. What an amazing gift you've given yourself. So why aren't you happier? As sobriety takes hold and your head starts to clear, a wide range of emotions can begin to emerge--feelings that until now you've "medicated" with chemicals. Yet to stay sober, and to grow and flourish as a person, you must engage in healing and take responsibility for these long-neglected emotions. Beverly Conyers, a prominent voice in recovery, uses personal stories and informed insight to guide you in achieving emotional sobriety by addressing behaviors and feelings unique to the female experience. Learn how to develop the inner resiliency to face and process difficult, buried emotions--such as shame, grief, fear, and anger--while freeing the positive feelings of self-worth, independence, and integrity. Discover how to heal your "damaged self" by improving your communication skills, expanding your capacity for intimacy and trust, and reawakening a spiritual life. As you heal your wounded heart, you can free yourself to a life of self-acceptance and lay the foundation for a rewarding and relapse-free second stage of recovery.

Who Are We to Judge? We have met the Pharisees, and they are...us. That's because we are all slaves to self-righteousness and judgmentalism. It's built into human nature. We set "the standard"--the list of do's and don'ts--to which others must adhere. Then we associate this predetermined behavior with righteousness and declare, "A 'Christian' wouldn't do that." In this book, John Fischer points out that Jesus defined the truth in such a way as to leave no one righteous--not one. We cannot be made right before God by being "better" than anyone else. Instead, by recognizing and laying aside the Pharisee in all of us, we can embrace the grace, gratitude, and joy of the spirit-filled life.

Remember the last good party you attended? No, not the office mixer where the chips were served from the bag, you had to mix your own drink, and the conversational topic was the latest child-rearing theory. No, the last good party you attended, the one where there was a theme with real food and yummy drinks and decorations to match and people actually talked to you. That's the kind of party we are talking about. And sadly, that's the kind of party that is harder and harder to find-until now. Now sorority sisters Kristina "Morgan" Rose and Deandra "Brooksie" Brooks are here with step-by-step party plans, including themes and concepts, decoration designs, menus and recipes, signature cocktails, and tips to make your event the party that everyone's talking about. With "A Word About" specific issues such as how much alcohol to buy per guest, and humorous quizzes, rants, and Top Ten lists, the only thing more fun than this book is the party you'll be inspired to throw because of it.

Addiction is seemingly inexplicable. From the outside, it can look like wilful, arrogant self-destruction; from the inside, it can feel as inevitable and insistent as a heartbeat. It is possible to describe, but hard to explore. Yet in The Recovering, Leslie Jamison draws on her own life and the lives of addicts of extraordinary talent - John Cheever, John Berryman, Jean Rhys and Amy Winehouse among them - to take us inside the experience of addiction, exposing the contours, edges and wholes of an intoxicated life. Part memoir, part group biography, part literary history and part definitive analysis of cultural and social considerations of addiction, The Recovering is a significant moment in the history of post-war narrative non-fiction.

This volume of essays marks the fifteenth year of archival and critical work conducted under the auspices of the Recovering the U.S. Hispanic Literary Heritage Project at the University of Houston. This ongoing and comprehensive program seeks to locate, identify, preserve, and disseminate the literary contributions of U.S. Latinos from the Spanish Colonial Period to contemporary times. The contributors explore key issues and challenges in this project, such as the issue of its legitimacy and acceptance in teh academic canon, whether the basic archival phase of the Recovery Project is complete, and if teh assumption that there is widespread recognition of the existence and vitality of a centuries-long U.S. Hispanic literary tradition may be premature and perhaps imprudent. Originally presented at the biennial conferences of the Recovery project, the essays are divided in five sections: "Rethinking Latino/a Subject Positions," "Negotiating Cultural Authority and the Canon," "Orality, Performance, and the Archive," "Re-Contextualizing Maria Amparo Ruiz de Burton," and "Bibliographic Reports." Covering a wide range of topics, essays include "Bending Chicano Identity and Experience in Arturo Isla's Early Borderland Short Stories," "Recovering Mexican America in the Classroom," and "Early New Mexican Criticism: The Case of Breve Resena de la literatura hispana de Nuevo Mexico y Colorado." In their introduction, editors Kenya Dworkin y Mendez and Agnes Lugo-Ortiz give an overview of the editorial framing of the previous volumes in the series and discuss the significant research issues and agendas raised over the past fifteen years. This volume, like the ones that precede it, is bilingual, confirming the cultural politics that have animated the Recovery Project since its inception: the understanding that the U.S. is a complex multicultural and multilingual society.

Recovering A-NEW A Culturally Competent Cognitive/Behavioral Treatment Model (Ground Zero: The Urban War-Zone) Authored By: Ronald Beavers, Ph.D. Executive Summary His Sheltering Arms-HSA provided an environment in South Central Los Angeles where crime and substance use has become a culture of its on, this is totally depleting the very fabric of life from the most wonderful citizens that have lived there starting at the end of WWII. Although demographics have changed somewhat that accommodates an ever increasing Latino population that just as most Blacks who had migrated after WWII all are seeking greater social and economic opportunities instead theres still much gentrification that plagues the area. We look at South of the Santa Monica (10) Freeway to Rosecrans Blvd. and then Alameda Corridor to the East and Western Ave. to the West this defines South Central Los Angeles where the heaviest influence of crime and substance use although there has been in the past several years has decreased it still posses as a major public health concern for young and old. May it be noted that the Alameda Corridor has the greatest re-entry prison population in the country; there are 40,000 low impact prisoners soon to be released in this catchment area alone, this model is designed to affectively inoculate the participants of the Recovering A-NEW with treatment, skills and tools for their family members as well that is premised on safety and productive living by incorporating culturally relevant AUTHENTIC behavior that creates a healthy family and community. The Recovering A-NEW is a Culturally Competent Cognitive/Behavioral Treatment Model recognizes that there is a need to fill the void found in the standard references in the field of traumatology. The need is especially obvious in the area of assessing the response-set to trauma and its residual effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Because of the complexities that trauma clients present with sometimes its features, the clinician is confronted with many sub-sets and dynamics that can prove to be very challenging in providing the appropriate assessment and treatment plan. In the field of stress-disorder and its correlate to addiction, the conceptual, empirical, and psychological advances of the past three-decades have been references, compiled by practitioners, clinicians and researchers who have made the informed decisions concerning the assessment of trauma (Peterson, K.C., Prout, M.F., & Schwarz R.A., 1993). These affects, most of the time took on the secondary feature of addiction, in the individual using alcohol and/or illicit drugs to cope with the effects of trauma. It is the hope that this text will ultimately bring the practitioners the possibility of insight and understanding as they work to enable the healing process in victims of trauma. When we examine measures of urban related traumatic events, i.e. murders, domestic violence, gangs and a host of other events that tend to comprise the mental/health care of those that live within the urban areas we see a strong correlation that is combat-related trauma that are described elsewhere in this Recovering A-NEW a Culturally Competent Cognitive Model. We also focus on scales that are suitable for studying civilian trauma in the clinical or community populations. The measurers described here are those that either have been significant to this field of trauma historically or appear quite promising for future research. In the past 20 years there has been a substantial and significant amount of literature aimed at providing a psychological characteristic of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Much of the literature is based on research that has used psycho-physiological measures and techniques to assess various features of the disorder as specified in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorder, fourth edition (DSM-IV; American Psychiatric Association,

Working With Walter Benjamin Recovering A Political Philosophy

This book provides a highly original approach to the writings of the twentieth-century German philosopher Walter Benjamin by one of his most distinguished readers. It develops the idea of "e;working with"e; Benjamin, seeking both to read his corpus and to put it to work - to show how a reading of Benjamin can open up issues that may not themselves be immediately at stake in his texts. The defining elements in Benjamin's writings that Andrew Benjamin isolates - history, experience, translation, technical reproducibility and politics - are put to work; that is, their utility is established in engaging the works of others. The question is how utility is understood. As Andrew Benjamin argues, utility involves demonstrating the different ways in which Benjamin is a central thinker within the project of understanding the nature of modernity. This is best achieved by noting connections and points of differentiation between his work and the writings of Adorno and Heidegger. However, the more demanding project is that 'working with' Benjamin necessitates deploying the implicit assumptions within his writings as well as demanding of his formulations more than is provided by their initial presentation. What is at stake is not the application of Benjamin's thought. Rather what counts is its use. Working with Benjamin engages with the themes central to Benjamin's work with deftness, daring and critical insight while at the same time situating those themes within current academic and cultural debates.

In this fascinating exploration of the development of the Spanish language from a sociohistorical perspective in the territory that has become the United States, linguists and editors Balestra, Mart©Ưnez, and Moyna draw attention to the long tradition of multilingualism in the United States in the hope of putting to rest the myth that the U.S. was ever a monolingual nation.
