Dear Friends and Colleagues….. It has long been a desire of mine to create a workbook for Adult Children of Alcoholics…..as an ACoA myself…. I know that it takes a village and a lifetime to figure out the strange legacy of loving someone who moves in and out of reality….and takes the family with them to varying degrees. This workbook is about climbing out of that legacy. It’s about understanding both the cost and the rather unusual and sometimes zany gifts of living in a world that challenges one’s sense of “normal”. Anyone who has grown up with adverse childhood experiences, codependency or relational trauma can find themselves in the pages of this book. This information and the exercises and processes here, are for you. I had a wonderful time putting this together, I tried to make it as welcoming and user-friendly as possible. I hope that you’ll have an equally good time using it…”come on in, the water’s fine….”
