Renowned addiction expert Patrick Carnes, PhD, author of A Gentle Path through the Twelve Steps, outlines twelve guiding principles to help those in recovery develop an essential skill set for life. Twelve Steps. Twelve Traditions. And yes, Twelve Principles. The Steps outline the actions that lead to extraordinary healing. The Traditions exist as guides to the functioning of the Fellowship. Embedded in both is a series of Principles by which to measure your progress.Anyone who lives a Twelve Step way of life will recognize the principles passed on in A Gentle Path through the Twelve Principles. They have existed among fellowships as a hidden curriculum of fundamental truths about recovery for decades, but never before have they been distilled into a succinct set of values that, when practiced, help each of us to develop an essential skill set for life. The principles--such universal touchstones for human self-realization as acceptance, awareness, responsibility, openness, honesty, courage, commitment, and meaning--are concepts that enable a deep inner study and focus to make a new life happen in recovery.Recovery means reengineering your life with a focus on renewal. The Twelve Principles are designed to help you get there.

The book Sexual Addiction: Understanding and Treatment introduces graduate-level students to the field of sexual addiction. Graduate schools seek a textbook that specifically addresses the dynamics of sex addiction to complete their counseling education curriculum. Some professors have indicated that there is a dearth of targeted instructional content. This book fills that need. As a compendium of Dr. Carnes’ research related to the treatment of sexually addicted men and women, the book will serve as clinical manual for therapists. Therapists are invited to use the recovery program presented as an effective treatment regimen for sex addicts. Internet pornography addicts men and women who have a weakness for sexual stimulation. One estimate is that as much as half of the male population and a third of the female population are addicted to pornography. The need for a relevant clinical tool is real. As such, the book contains thirty-six therapeutic exercises to help sexually addicted men and women, in conjunction with sex addiction therapy, to achieve long-term sexual sobriety.
