  2. 12 Step Programs - Helpful?

    12 Step Programs - Helpful?

    Hello Belleruth,

    I have found the 12 step program to be a helpful adjunct to traditional psychotherapy. I was raised by alcoholic parents, though like many such children, for years I was consciously unaware that there was anything “wrong” with my home life. Life may have been stressful and tumultuous, but it was up to me to make it better. I accepted the unreasonable challenge of molding the world to my will, and any small / temporary successes I accrued were, of course, to my own great personal credit. There being little else to own, I really owned this aspect of myself. Unbeknownst to me I was building the resume of a survivor - a survivor that carried within her the very same misshapen ideals, the unrealistic expectations, and ultimately the sickness that ravaged the lives of my parents.

  3. Can I Get Your New 12 Step Audio Downloaded to a Phone?

    Can I Get Your New 12 Step Audio Downloaded to a Phone?

    Dear BR,

    I have been using your CDs for over 15 years & swear by them. A friend of my daughter is 7 days sober. She is a phone person, so I would like to know if the MP3 is to be downloaded on to a phone or should I get her an MP3 player. Old school here, but I think she would really benefit listening to your new Dr. Leviton guided imagery.

  4. I Am Put Off by Your Support of Alcoholics Anonymous & the Twelve Steps

    I Am Put Off by Your Support of Alcoholics Anonymous & the Twelve Steps

    Belleruth,

    I am put off by what you have to offer. Health Journey's full support of Alcoholics Anonymous is appalling. AA views people through a deficit-based lens. Proof for this statement exists on your website. It calls people who use substances as "skinless", "self-deluded", and "addicts". This kind of language hurts people who struggle with compulsive behavior. It violates some of the basic principles of our social work profession.

  5. How Open-Minded is Your New 12 Step Audio?

    How Open-Minded is Your New 12 Step Audio?

    Hello Belleruth,

    My question is about this version of 12 steps from C.L. I would like to buy but the 12 Steps seem to be very fatalistic:

    #1 powerless about XYZ, #2 only help through an external power-force, #6 & #7 change my situation only through an external power-force

    That is what they say and what they try to believe, as I see on my sister and on Wikipedia. I would not like to reinforce this IMO disbeliefs/limitations into my head by a well-made hypno-file.

    Help for an Alcoholic Struggling with Addiction for 25 Years

    Dear Belleruth,

    I’m wondering if you have any programs that could help an alcoholic trying to achieve sobriety after 25 years of addiction. He is having a very difficult time.

  7. Lost and Found: Chuck Leviton’s Extraordinary Imagery for the 12 Steps

    Lost and Found: Chuck Leviton’s Extraordinary Imagery for the 12 Steps

     

    Guided imagery got a big boost from the Recovery community and the ‘Inner Child’ movement of the ‘80s. Charles Whitfield, John Bradshaw, Melody Beattie, and Claudia Black led the way for introducing guided meditations to help people recovering from addiction, co-dependency, childhood brutality and neglect, helping listeners go within for healing and reclaiming a redeemed and transformed self.

    But then, sometime in the nineties, at a NICABM Hilton Head conference, I sat in on an imagery workshop by Chuck and Patti Leviton. It presented a series of guided meditations for recovering addicts, and the imagery was designed to accompany each of the 12 steps. It blew me away.

  8. Can I use guided imagery to make two lifestyle changes at the same time?

    Can I use guided imagery to make two lifestyle changes at the same time?

    I'm dealing with two things I want to change, and I don't have much time to spend listening to audio programs. Can you recommend guided imagery for both, and can I work on them at the same time?

  9. What To Do to Combat Perverse, Insistent Negative Thinking

    What To Do to Combat Perverse, Insistent Negative Thinking

    Question:

    My therapist told me that it might be better to restrict myself to guided meditation that doesn’t involve trying to visualize. I used to really enjoy doing visualizations, but now I am plagued by negative images, the opposite of what I’m after, and cannot see the positive any more. This frustrates and upsets me. What should I do?

  10. Guided Imagery Gets Her Off Prescribed Meds, but Does So Much More

    Guided Imagery Gets Her Off Prescribed Meds, but Does So Much More

    We found this personal story about using guided imagery to help with withdrawal from prescribed medications, and it’s a wonderful example of the way guided imagery can have a positive impact, way beyond the original intention to clean up an inadvertent addiction. Check out what A. Baranowski had to say about this – it’s very encouraging.  

    (Belleruth cracked a wide grin at the line she considers “highest praise” when this writer read some of the Q and A’s on our site and pronounced her “not a silly person”!!)
