Therapy is supposed to help everyone, but how do you work with a talk-therapist when you can’t think clearly? The answer: Forget thinking. Focus on action!
“Too Depressed to Think…” is based on Behavioral Action Therapy, a clinical alternative to talk-therapy.
“Changing Problem Thoughts” is a short, comfortable read filled with cartoons, coloring, and lots of cognitive therapy. Readers are presented with scenarios and multiple choice exercises and gradually work towards rewriting their own thoughts. Click here for preview.
Here motivational interviewing, cognitive therapy, and psychoeducation meet art, cartoons, and humor. There’s no pressure. There’s no requirement to quit. By way of an irreverent, playful voice, the booklet explores drug cessation as a possibility, and the reader is left to decide on their own. Click here for preview.
How much do you know about alcohol, opiates, cocaine, and marijuana? Ranging from side effects and mortality rates to oddities and cultural mishaps, these T/F quizzes will keep you thinking. Perfect for providers to use with clients or teachers with students.
Topics range from understanding your Higher Power and reaching out for help to mindful observation, the importance of helping others, and remembering 12-Step Promises. Puzzles included.
Subjects include types of treatment, reasons to stop using, what you can do to head towards recovery, definition of substance use disorder, education about addiction & quitting, stages of recovery, and problem thoughts that make quitting difficult.
“Like a breath of fresh air, I really enjoyed and appreciated the out of the box approach as it was quite inventive, memorable, and thought-provoking. I know people who would benefit from sobriety, and as a family physician working in an asylum, I am looking forward to using these worksheet resources in my practice. I recommend this resource for any medical provider and anyone who is seeking help from addiction or knows a loved one who may benefit having this book nearby.” — Lisa Lorelli, DO, Family Physician. Morganton, North Carolina
“I have been looking for just this type of interaction for recovery to spice things up. This is amazing. I would love to implement them into my curriculum. I have been trying to find new ways to keep my patients going after they feel better. Hoping they don’t get complacent.” — Charlotte K Prather, SUDC, Program Director & Counselor. Renaissance Ranch, Utah
“I’m a peer support specialist and have worked on my own recovery over the past ten years…. From the jokes to the coloring material, this workbook has the answers to questions that people needing recovery want to ask but hardly ever ask. It has material I have never encountered in a workbook at the 20+ places I’ve been. I believe this book can be very beneficial to those in long-term treatment.” — Nathan Ray, Peer Support Specialist. Morganton, North Carolina
“I have used some of the worksheets from your blog with inpatient clients at the hospital who are in pre-contemplation/contemplation toward addressing their SUD. They have enjoyed the pages and I have found them useful for facilitating conversations to help increase their motivation. I like that your work engages the creative side of the brain and spans appropriate comprehension level of multiple groups.” — Julie Bowers-Pryor, MA, LCSW, LCADC, CSW. University of Kentucky, Kentucky.
