Take a deep dive into your emotional sobriety in relationships.

Emotional sobriety is the next big thing in recovery. Why? Because it helps us deal with the causes and conditions underlying our problems. Relationship dysfunction is one of the top five reasons for relapse. None of us have all the tools we need to create a healthy atmosphere in our relationships. We have many old ideas that interfere. Relationships are challenging and complex: they bring us happiness, joy, and ecstasy like no other experience in life, but they also cause severe anxiety, disappointment, pain, and suffering.

Understanding and deciphering the mystery of relationships is one of the greatest challenges we face in our lives, especially in recovery. But the struggle is worthwhile. Relationships grow us, and help us become what we can be. They force us to confront who we are and who we aren’t like no other experience in life. They challenge our ability to hold on to ourselves and not lose ourselves in its embrace.

As many of us are realizing, emotional sobriety offers us many powerful tool and perspectives that can help us create a safe and loving atmosphere in our relationships. We invite you to join us for an in-depth exploration of relationships and emotional sobriety.

Led by Allen Berger, Ph.D., author of 12 Essential Insights for Emotional Sobriety. Speakers include Roger Andes, M.A., Self-Esteem Theorist and Sarah Stromberg Certified Recovery Coach
