This new edition of Perfect Daughters, a pivotal book in the ACoA movement, identifies what differentiates the adult daughters of alcoholics from other women. When this groundbreaking book first appeared over ten years ago, Dr. Ackerman identified behavior patterns shared by daughters of alcoholics. Adult daughters of alcoholics-"perfect daughters" -operate from a base of harsh and limiting views of themselves and the world. Having learned that they must function perfectly in order to avoid unpleasant situations, these women often assume responsibility for the failures of others. They are drawn to chemically dependent men and are more likely to become addicted themselves. More than just a text that identifies these behavior patterns, this book collects the thoughts, feelings and experiences of twelve hundred perfect daughters, offering readers an opportunity to explore their own life's dynamics and thereby heal and grow. This edition contains updated information throughout the text, and completely new material, including chapters on eating disorders and abuse letters from perfect daughters in various stages of recovery, and helpful, affirming suggestions from Dr. Ackerman at the end of every chapter. This book is essential for every one who found validation, hope, courage and support in the pages of the original Perfect Daughters, as well as new readers and every therapist who confronts these issues. Also includes: a comprehensive reference section and complete index.

Das Drama Des Begabten Kindes Und Die Suche Nach Dem Wahren Selbst

Gemeinsame Leitthemen der in diesem Band enthaltenen drei Studien sind die Ursprünge des Selbstverlustes und Wege der Selbstfindung. Das Drama des begabten, das heißt sensiblen, wachen Kindes besteht darin, daß es schon früh Bedürfnisse seiner Eltern spürt und sich ihnen anpaßt, indem es lernt, seine intensivsten, aber unerwünschten Gefühle nicht zu fühlen. Obwohl diese "verpönten" Gefühle später nicht immer vermieden werden können, bleiben sie doch abgespalten, das heißt: Der vitalste Teil des wahren Selbst wird nicht in die Persönlichkeit integriert. Das führt zu emotionaler Verunsicherung und Verarmung (Selbstverlust), die sich in der Depression ausdrücken oder aber in der Grandiosität abgewehrt werden. Die angeführten Beispiele sensibilisieren für das nicht artikulierte, hinter Idealisierungen verborgene Leiden des Kindes wie auch für die Tragik der nicht verfügbaren Eltern, die einst selbst verfügbare Kinder gewesen sind.

When they were first released in the 1980s, Janet Woititz's groundbreaking works, Adult Children of Alcoholics, Struggle for Intimacy and The Self-Sabotage Syndrome, provided a new message of hope to adult children who had grown up in the shadow of alcoholic parents. Their message today is as profound and timeless as it was two decades ago. Now, in this complete collection, readers will learn again the insight and healing power of Janet Wotitiz's words. The Complete ACoA Sourcebook is a compilation of three of Dr. Woititz's classic books, addressing head-on the symptoms of The Adult Children of Alcoholics syndrome and providing strategies for living a normal life as an adult. Readers will find help for themselves: at home, in intimate relationships and on the job. They will discover the reasons for the way they think, believe and feel about themselves; ACoAs often feel isolated, have difficulty in relationships, in the workplace and in feeling good about themselves. Readers who are familiar with Woititz's work will find wisdom once again in this classic collection. Those new to ACoA will gain fresh insight into their behavior patterns and find an avenue for self-love and healing. Noted ACoA expert Dr. Robert Ackerman, author of the best-selling Perfect Daughters and Silent Sons, provides a foreword and explains why Janet Woititz's message will continue to help millions of readers for generations to come.

Mit seinem Vater lebt er am Rande der Gesellschaft. Warum er nicht zur Schule geht, keine Freunde hat und ständig umziehen muss, weiß der Junge nicht. Doch er weiß, dass es ihm an nichts mangelt, dass sein Vater ihn die wichtigen Dinge des Lebens lehrt, ihn beschützt und bedingungslos liebt. Zehn Jahr später: Etwas Unerklärliches ist vorgefallen, und der mittlerweile junge Mann schlägt sich nunmehr allein durch die Straßen von Kopenhagen. Allein, und doch immer begleitet von seinem Vater, von dessen Worten und Gedanken. Er fasst den Entschluss, die dunkle Vergangenheit seines Vaters zu beleuchten, und begibt sich auf eine Reise, die ihn durch ganz Dänemark und schließlich nach Berlin führt. Warum ist sein Vater so, wie er ist? Und kann sein Sohn aus diesem Schatten heraustreten? Die klare eindringliche Sprache von Jonas T. Bengtsson lässt Freiräume für mannigfaltigste Schattierungen entstehen. Eine bildstarke Geschichte, die ohne Sentimentalität auskommt und tief unter die Haut geht.

Alcoholism, like other forms of addiction, is a complex disease, but treatment does not have to be complicated. The stigma/shame of the disease comes from the behaviors developed from the disease. These behaviors must be addressed and changed using a therapy program. Sobriety is more than abstinence and relapse prevention. Family members are severely emotionally and mentally injured and need as much treatment as the alcoholic/addict so they can become healthy persons. A clinical social worker, author Alice M. Lebron has dedicated her career to finding and developing information to help individuals suffering from alcoholism/addiction, as well people directly affected by the disease-their families. The author believes that “recovery enables a person to become the person they were born to become,” and through this book, she aims to guide you and your family down the path of change and healing, which she has been doing for more than forty years.

In The Mother And The Manager Elizabeth Ralston courageously explores how our traditional gender roles create codependent behaviors in men and women and offers positive, workable solutions toward dealing with this problem. The Mother And The Manager takes an in-depth look at how our society has evolved and impacted gender roles into the twenty-first century. As 12-Step recovery groups have flourished in recent years, women have been educated about why they have issues such as low self-esteem, perfectionism, rigidity, relationship failures, inability to get their needs met and fear of conflict. Elizabeth has bravely shared about how patriarchy has impacted her life and how recovery has helped her to empower and heal herself. She will help many who are searching for answers to their questions and will help them on the road to recovery. I salute her ability to face her fears about “rocking the boat” in writing this book and taking the risk to speak her truth and stay on her God-inspired path.” Ginger S. Edwards, Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Addictions Specialist Specializing in Codependency and Trauma
