TTS Part 11Flashlight of Awareness, Part Two
If you have not already done so, stop right here and watch Part One of the Flashlight of Awareness. This video will not make much sense if you have not already seen that one. Many of you know from working with me that I am an integrative psychotherapist. In other words I integrate complementary models of therapy in many different ways in order to fit the unique needs of each client I work with.I want to reiterate, even though I will be talking about the 12-Steps, it will not be in affiliation with any of the many twelve-step programs. While I DO strongly endorse them, their Traditions strictly prohibit affiliating with anyone outside the organization. To avoid controversy, they neither oppose nor endorse any causes or organizations. That includes any specific form of religion and/or therapy models37 years ago I began my personal recovery from addiction. 6 months later I found myself back in school to begin my educational and professional development as a licensed therapist. I felt led to help others find what I have found through recovery. My greatest struggle has been HOW to share this three-dimensional experience of personal recovery, academic education, and professional development with others.In the end, it became clear to me that I can only speak of what I know, share what I have seen, and teach what I have learned. For me, all of this has come through the lens of Christianity. It is my sincere hope that, even if your lens is different, somehow these observations of mine will be useful to you.
