Stephanie Covington, Ph.D. addresses the difficulties women have with the traditional, male oriented, step language. Rather than alter the traditional 12 steps she focuses on the healing message in the 12 steps using the original step language, making them accessible to women from a wide range of backgrounds. Each step is explored and the various issues and reservations women have with the 12 steps are addressed utilizing the experiences of women in recovery and how they came to terms with the difficulties that women often experience with the traditional 12 steps. Although the main thrust of the book is addiction she carries over the ideas of the addictions based programs and looks at the experience of women in such areas as relationships, sexuality, spirituality and everyday life.
A Woman's Way Through the Twelve Steps is a comprehensive resource for women in recovery no matter what 12 step program they participate in. It is the rare woman that won't see herself somewhere in it's pages and come away with something that can enhance her recovery.
