Changing Attitudes In Recovery - Building Esteem
Depression, anxiety and panic are common symptoms for people suffering from low self-esteem. They experience the gamut of addictive problems including chemical dependency, eating disorders, co-dependency, and sexual addictions. Their emotional/spiritual turmoil and the resulting internal stress are associated with physical symptoms such as headaches, gastrointestinal problems, and sleep difficulties. Intimacy and the capacity for healthy relationships are elusive for those with low self-esteem.  "Changing Attitudes In Recovery:  A Handbook On Esteem" (C.A.I.R.)  addresses change at this core level of self-esteem.
The C.A.I.R. Handbook is the culmination of over  30 years of experience dealing with these results of wounded esteem. You supply the willingness and openness to learning which allow the words in the Handbook to become real in your daily life. It is helpful to share this learning process with others. C.A.I.R. groups can consist of two or more people coming together to learn and grow: couples, friends, co-workers, etc.
The C.A.I.R. Handbook is designed to be read aloud. Each paragraph requires time and thought. The wording and concepts help to create a safe atmosphere for learning and practicing a new way of life. C.A.I.R. allows you to build a healthier self-esteem by recognizing toxic attitudes and replacing these destructive filters with helpful new ones. This process of healing wounded esteem is termed recovery.
