SexSmart and Recovery

According to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, about 43% of Americans or 76 million people, have been exposed to alcoholism in the family.

SexSmart: How Your Childhood Shaped Your Life and What to Do About It
 can be a great help to you if you are an adult child of an alcoholic (ACOA), or a victim of physical, emotional, or sexual abuse in your family. One whole chapter is devoted to the effect of family violence on sexuality. Stories about people who suffered from emotional abuse and neglect are included throughout.

Here are what other experts in the field of Recovery are saying about SexSmart:

“SexSmart is the best explanation of sexuality that we have ever encountered. Rather than being just another sexual ‘cookbook,’ it helps readers examine the origins of their inner messages about sexuality, allowing a depth of understanding and healing that we believe is unparalleled in the field.”SexSmart cover 2010 jpeg

-John C. Friel, Ph.D. and Linda Friel, M.A;
Licensed psychologists and authors of Adult Children: The Secrets of Dysfunctional Families.

“A valuable resource for anyone who wants to understand and explore the root causes of adult sexual intimacy concerns. “

-Wendy Maltz, MSW; author of The Sexual Healing Journey and The Porn Trap.

“Dr. Zoldbrod explains with clarity the direct effects of parental overcontrol, violence, and emotional withdrawal, which often exist with addiction, on the sexual development of children.”

-Stephanie Abbott M.A. National Association for 
Children of Alcoholics; author of Co-Dependency:
A Secondhand Life.
