This thoughtful guide by a Harvard psychotherapist says addictions are not the result of weakness but are an attempt to regain control in the midst of disempowering emotional distress. His seven steps include the advice that people struggling with addiction should not blame themselves or proclaim themselves to be helpless. With accessible case histories, he makes the point that people can be proactive in recognizing the emotional themes and trigger moments that lead to addictive behavior. John Meagher’s serious tone fits this psychodynamic approach to a pernicious mental health challenge. Though his tone is reserved and formal, he doesn’t sound stuffy or aloof. A softness in his voice reaches out to listeners and promotes openness to personal growth. T.W. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2012]
