It was written to help non-addicts (and addicts) understand and apply 12 step concepts to their own lives to help them navigate personal and relational crises. It incorporates various therapeutic tools and exercises, as well. It can also be a helpful tool for those who love/are in a relationship with addicts and want to better understand what recovery can look like (meetings, working steps, building relationships). The book weaves in personal stories of how those who don’t identify as addicts can apply the 12-Step model to their lives. Kristin references her years of running a mens drug and sex addiction program, helping clients gain sobriety through a recovery program, while also applying the concepts to her own personal/relational struggles in life at the time. Scott shares his personal story of recovery as a drug and sex addict. The book tackles difficult concepts around rebuilding your life and identity after devastation, identifying shame and trauma and developing resiliency skills for both, improving interpersonal relationship tools like boundary setting, communication, practicing empathy and compassion and engaging in secure attachment with others.Want to better your life?

It is Time to Bring More Action Into Your Recovery with Carol the Coach
Like other addictions, sexual addiction, or hypersexuality, can be masking deeper issues such as anxiety, stress and depression. How we feel after a sexual experience is usually a good barometer for our intention leading up to it. Do we feel more connected or do we feel less connected, that hollow feeling that can ensue? Carol the Coach will be interviewing Murray Hidary who is a multi-diciplanary expert at helping people shift their ability to take responsibility and action for their lives. He has developed a tool he refers to as the MindTravel method which brings radical responsibility to any situation. Viewing an issue through the lens of radical responsibility involves bringing awareness to the behavior and its impacts on our lives and the lives of others, full acceptance of these realizations and then taking intentional action to remedy and move forward in a healthy way. Awareness. Acceptance. Action. The relationship with our sexuality is an ongoing journey as it is relational, in dynamic response to others and an external expression of our ever evolving inner state. It requires consistent awareness and attention; mindfulness. Through music, reflection and entering into a deep listening to what is going on within and around us the door opens to a life lived with more freedom, no longer at the mercy of our fears and wounds.

How To Move On From Shame with Carol the Coach
Shame is the most painful of all emotions. People will go to almost any length to avoid feeling it. The problem with addiction as a way to avoid shame is that once the addictive behavior ends, the shame comes back many fold. And it takes stronger and stronger doses of the addiction to move into good feelings again. Working with shame involves helping the person transform toxic shame that leads to the addiction into healthy shame. Carol the Coach interviews Bret Lyon who is an expert in helping sex addicts work through the stages of shame.In toxic shame the addict freezes, feels helpless and is unable to change behavior. In healthy shame a person can reassess, see oneselves as a flawed human being, living in a community of flawed human beings, who made a mistake and is open to the possibilty of change.

Substituting Addiction for Human Closeness with Carol the Coach
Carol the Coach interviews Forest Benedict who is a therapist who specializes in the treatment of sexual addiction. The perspective that guides his work is attachment theory. From this viewpoint, sexual addiction is an attachment or intimacy disorder. When a secure attachment to a caregiver is not developed in early life, a person is more susceptible to addiction. In his book “Addiction as an Attachment Disorder”, Flores states it this way: “No one ever escapes their need for satisfying relationships, and the degree to which we are unable to form healthy interpersonal intimacy determines the degree to which we are vulnerable to substitute [addiction] for human closeness.” In this show he explains that when you combine this lack of relational trust with the opportunity for a mood-altering experience, such as using ography, it becomes a formula for creating a powerful connection with a non-relational entity. Over time, this can become a person’s primary method of reli…

Shadows of the Cross: A Roadmap for the Healing Journey with Carol the Coach
Carol the Coach will be interviewing Craig S. Cashwell one of the co-authors of Shadows of the Cross. This book focuses on sex addiction recovery for Christian men and women. Often, Christians who struggle with sex addiction live the ultimate "Jekyll and Hyde" existence, being active in their church communities even as they hide their addiction. The Christian church, in general, struggles to address issues of sexuality in a non-shaming way, which further supports the hidden nature of the addiction.

Shadows of the Cross used in conjunction with Dr. Patrick Carnes's book Facing the Shadow provides a roadmap for this healing journey. Shadows of the Cross provides an early spiritual focus to recovery while addressing issues of sexuality in a non-shaming way using Biblical scripture to encourage…
