I bring to you my own years of experience in understanding the human condition.
The material I am presenting is not drawn from text books, but from the application
of my own education in the therapeutic environment.
So if my intention is not to lecture, educate or inform you what is it that I am doing?
Well, I simply wish to share with you. A strong part of my private practice is in counseling those who suffer with the disease of addiction. There are many aspects of psychotherapy that are peculiar to this particular malady. It is with this condition in mind that I bring this presentation to you. I hope that you find this information helpful and you will be able to apply it along the trudge of your road of happy destiny.
The topics will focus on sobriety, emotions and attitudes.
Within the topics - we will cover concepts in no particular order,
beginning with the attitude of denial and its dangers.
We then will cover the importance of understanding Anxiety and some brief solutions.
These solutions will include the importance of changing your thinking process.
Some details on the root of anger and how to express it in a healthy way will be observed.
The importance of empathy in recovery will then be discussed.
The positive advantages and explanation of EXISTENTIAL psychotherapy will lead us into a discussion of altruistic behavior which will then bring us to a close.
Thank you, Enjoy!
