I have been talking about adding these to our web site for quite some time and am excited that we’ve finally added them! You can go to the menu under Resources and click on Handouts or use this link to see the list of handouts that have been added so far. We would also like to add additional tools as time moves on. We hope you’ll be able to take advantage of these tools to help make your life better.
Mark had the opportunity to present on the importance of connection in the recovery process via a Zoom conference on April 21, 2020, as part of the Dallas Free Lecture Series. Watch the replay on YouTube!
I was invited to be a guest on the DSO Secrets podcast, discussing Stress Tools in a Crisis with Emmet Scott and JD Stacey. I enjoyed the discussion, hopefully you will too!
You can listen to the episode here, or search for DSO Secrets (episode 66) in your favorite podcast app.
We are getting ready for our upcoming training for therapists who work with individuals and couples who have been affected by sex or love addiction. CCRT-SLA stands for "Certified Connection and Recovery Therapist specializing in Sex/Love Addiction" and the training is based on my book, In Tandem. I'm so excited to share it with you! If you're interested in joining us, here is all the info you need!
The publishing process took longer than I expected, but after years of research, practice, and writing, I’m excited to announce the arrival of my new book, In Tandem: Recovering me, Recovering us! If you are a current client, you are welcome to purchase a copy in the office, or you can purchase it on Amazon. I look forward to hearing what you think!
(And once you’ve had a chance to read it, if you would feel comfortable posting a review on Amazon I’d really appreciate it!)
As promised, here are the slides from yesterday’s presentation. Thank you to those of you who joined us!
Coming in early November!
In Tandem: Recovering Me, Recovering Us
by Mark H Bird, PhD
Connection is at the heart of recovery. For those who are in a relationship, that means you must develop individual recovery as well as the ability to work in tandem with your partner to establish couple recovery tools that bring connection.
For those not in a primary relationship, connection is just as critical, and requires you to work in tandem with family, friends, higher power, etc. Research suggest that connection is essential to long-term recovery, and it requires many skills to stay connected, like honesty, communication, trust-building, accountability, empathy, and many others. This book provides a step-by-step process for developing the skills for connection in tandem with solid individual recovery skills.
Want updates when the book launches?
