I received this e-mail yesterday from Dr. Magness asking me to add his link and interview to the Married To A Sex Addict site. I have put his interview at the end of this post for your review. Please listen and tell me what you think. He does talk quite a bit about the partner and how we have been traumatized.
After I replied to his e-mail he sent me a link to another new video that explains a bit of his philosophy about partners of Sex Addicts. I have also included that interview at the end of this post. He is also sending me a copy of his new book for review. After I have read it I will post my review here and on the Sisterhood of Support site.
Dr. Milton S. Magness
Thanks for your blog and for the help it gives men and women in recovery.
My latest book was just released. I wonder if you would mind posting something about it on your blog. I have written something below in hopes that you might find it useful for your blog:
New Recovery Book
Thirty Days to Hope & Freedom From Sexual Addiction has just been released by Gentle Path Press. It gives a step-by-step approach for recovery for those who are just entering recovery and those who want to raise their recovery to the next level.
Several unique features of this book include:
· Introduction of the Recovery Points System: a way of tracking recovery progress by earning recovery points. This tool not only helps get a person firmly established in recovery but it is a powerful relapse prevention tool.
· iRecovery—An iPhone app is coordinated with this book. It utilized the Recovery Points System and also allows the user to bring all parts of their recovery together into one easy to use app. A free version is this app can be found in the Apple Store and also at www.RecoveryApp.com.
· All worksheets in this book are available online. Readers are given the URL of the website that contains fillable PDF files of all the worksheets.
· The thirty day plan has one chapter for the reader each day. Following that plan will ensure that readers are solidly in recovery and have eliminated the typical causes of slips and relapse.
Thanks for giving this your consideration.
