Pathways to Recovery (and Everything Recovery…Faith, Healing, Self, Being Strong)

Pathways to Recovery: A Strengths Recovery Self-Help Workbook by Priscilla Ridgway, Diane McDiarmid, Lori Davidson, Julie Bayes, and Sarah Ratzlaff.

In Book 12, I struggle during my intervention with anger. This was one of the workbooks that I used during a group I had joined. I attended this workshop to get my happy back. I was so tired of people abusing me because of my disabilities (and they did), telling me I was faking it and picking fun of me because I forget things, as well as setting me off knowing I have PTSD. So, I including here a lot of books about recovery from many different things. There are also some great I am Strong gifts for you. You are welcome.

About: (Borrowed from Amazon.) ‘Before I heard of Pathways, my mental illness defined me. When I started the workbook, I realized my recovery defined me. By the time I finished it, I realized I could define my own life.’ ~ Pathways Reader. This quote by a reader of Pathways to Recovery points to the impact the workbook—and its accompanying group facilitator’s guide—continue to have for individuals who experience symptoms associated with mental illnesses. Now in its sixth printing, the workbook has developed a strong and loyal following. In 2003, Pathways was listed as one of the top three national recovery education tools by the Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation and it received the Lilly Reintegration Award in 2009. It has also been widely used by the U.S. Veteran’s Administration, several state Departments of Mental Health and a wide variety of consumer-run organizations. Individual readers, family members, peer support workers and other mental health providers throughout the United States and internationally have used the workbook with great success. Working in partnership with recovery educators, consumer co-authors and an advisory group of Kansas consumers to develop the materials, Pathways to Recovery translates the evidence-supported approach of the Strengths Model—an approach developed in Kansas and that has been used effectively for over twenty years worldwide—into a person-centered, self-help approach. The Strengths Model has proven successful in reducing psychiatric hospitalization, allowing people to set and achieve person goals and, in turn, improve one’s quality of life. Pathways to Recovery puts the process of setting goals and creating personal recovery plans into a self-guided format. The workbook doesn’t concentrate on psychiatric symptoms, treatments or disorders. Instead, the book guides readers through a process of exploring their own recovery journey while creating a long-range vision for their lives. The workbook format guides individuals to explore their current lives and set goals across ten life domains that include creating a home, learning, working, nurturing a social circle, intimacy and sexuality, wellness, leisure and spirituality.
