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.
