This workbook provides a carefully structured system that anyone can use to monitor feelings and behaviors and respond to them in a way that reduces or eliminates the possibility of relapse and increases the likelihood that you will feel well most of the time.
This book is for use by older teens and adults who are working on their recovery, their supporters and care providers. It can also be used as a guide for groups and should be available on loan by health care providers and libraries. It is an in-depth description of the Wellness Recovery Action Plan process and is highly recommended as a supplement to the other WRAP resources. It contains specific instructions for working with others who have special needs.
Every recovery holds the potential for relapse. And for many who have fought their way back to health from a physical disorder or emotional trauma, the return of old feelings and behaviors can be even more devastating than the original crisis.
This workbook provides a carefully structured system that anyone can use to monitor feelings and behaviors and respond to them in a way that reduces or eliminates the possibility of relapse and increases the likelihood that you will feel well most of the time. You will identify those things you need to do every day to maintain an optimum level of wellness, how to recognize the daily events that can cause you to feel badly, the early warning signs that you need to take action, the signs that the situation is worsening, and how to make personal action plans that can reverse the situation. It will also guide you through the process of developing a personal crisis plan for others to use if they need to take responsibility for your care.
"I am delighted that Mary Ellen Copeland has designed such comprehensive and easy-to-use guidelines. Winning Against Relapse can be used for a multitude of illnesses, including chronic pain states. It promotes the state of optimum wellness that should be our goal."
