Recovering addicts are faced with many challenges, and these challenges can often extend to their romantic partners. During the recovery period, couples often struggle with overcoming feelings of betrayal and frustration, and may have a hard time rebuilding trust and closeness. While there are many resources available to recovering addicts, there are limited resources for the people who love them. In Loving Someone in Recovery, therapist Beverly Berg offers powerful tools for the partners of recovering addicts. Based in mindfulness, attachment theory, and neurobiology, this book will help readers sustain emotional stability in their relationships, increase effective communication, establish boundaries, and take real steps toward reigniting intimacy. The material in this book is drawn from the author’s successful Conscious Couples Recovery Workshop. With more than 25 years in the field, she has developed a unique set of exercises that address the issues faced by couples in recovery. This book addresses the roles that both partners play in recovery, and aims to help readers develop a new appreciation for one another and improve self-confidence and acceptance. The road to recovery is never an easy one, but by building a strong support system, the chances of success are exponentially greater. For more information on Berg’s work, visit

Dealing with an anxiety disorder is hard, but loving someone with an anxiety disorder can be equally as difficult. If your partner suffers from extreme anxiety, they may have panic attacks, constantly be voicing their worried thoughts, or may not be able to participate in social events because of a fear of social settings. No matter how compassionate you are, you may sometimes feel frustrated, unable to help, and even find your own life restricted—all of which can lead to conflict, resentment, miscommunication, and ultimately, an end to the relationship altogether. Loving Someone with Anxiety is one of the few books written specifically for the partners of people with anxiety disorders. The book is designed not only to aid you in helping your partner cope with anxiety and worry, but also to help you take care of your own needs. Inside, you’ll learn the importance of setting healthy boundaries, limiting codependent behaviors, and why taking over roles that make your partner anxious—such as answering the phone, driving, or doing the grocery shopping because your partner feels too anxious to be in public—can be extremely damaging for the both of you. Codependency in relationships with an anxious partner can lead to resentment, anger, and a sense of helplessness on your side. This book will help you and your partner overcome these negative behaviors, build better communication and a stronger personal connection. Written by a licensed professional counselor who specializes in helping the partners of those with mental illnesses, this book is the resource that you have been looking for to help you understand your anxious partner and keep anxiety from sabotaging your relationship.

Witnessing your loved one suffer hurts. Find out what you can do to support them without putting your relationship at risk... Post-traumatic stress disorder, also known as PTSD, is an anxiety disorder that can develop after having witnessed or experienced a traumatic event. Contrary to popular belief, this condition doesn't only affect soldiers, but also people from all backgrounds and of any age. Did you know that an estimated 8 million adults are affected by PTSD in the US And that's not counting the family and friends who feel the effects of the disorder as well. Living with someone suffering from PTSD can prove to be extremely stressful and disheartening, as all you wish is to see them happy and acting like their normal selves. Although you may want to help, if you aren't well informed or equipped with the right tools and knowledge, it will be nearly impossible for you to make a positive difference. By taking the time to educate yourself and know what to prepare for, you will have everything you need to serve as a vital piece to the recovery puzzle. In PTSD and Relationships, you will discover: How to support and encourage your loved one through their PTSD without putting your own health and happiness at risk Why telling your loved one reassuring phrases such as, "Everything is going to be okay," is actually doing them more harm than good, and what you should say instead that will aid in their recovery How it feels to be in your loved one's shoes, allowing you to better understand their condition and bring forth the sensitivity and compassion they're in great need of The most effective PTSD treatments available, and how to figure out which approach would be the best option for assisting your loved one through their recovery Why these common ways to react to someone suffering from PTSD aren't helping them, neither in the short-term nor the long-term, and how you should appropriately handle their behavioral changes The top 10 ways PTSD scrambles a person's communication skills, and how to overcome those road bumps in order to stimulate their progress Why taking proper care of yourself is essential to your well-being, even when your loved one is suffering from PTSD (And no, it does not mean you are selfish or make you a bad person ) And much more. If someone you love has been diagnosed with PTSD, yet you don't know the first thing about the disorder, then educating yourself with the proper knowledge is essential in order to be a helpful resource in their recovery. By familiarizing yourself with the ups and downs that coincide with the condition, you'll know exactly what to expect and how to handle certain situations, should they arise. Even if the relationship between you and your affected loved one has dealt with several blows and is worsening as a result of the PTSD, it's never too late to mend the cracks and strengthen your bond thereafter. Although it may take a great deal of time and patience, it is well worth it in the end when you get to witness how much he or she has learned and grown through the process. No one wants to see their best friend, family member, or spouse struggle through hardship. Show them you're the rock in the relationship and that they can always count on you for support and love whenever they need it, no matter the reason. If you want to discover how you can aid your loved one through their PTSD recovery without jeopardizing your own well-being, then scroll up and click the "Add to Cart" button right now.
