It Will Never Happen to Me is a line spoken by all who have been raised in a family where one or both parents have a problem with addiction. In addictive families most children move through adolescence appearing to survive the problems and hardships of life. They abide by the laws Don't Talk, Don't Trust, Don't Feel. As resilient as children are, their survival techniques frequently contribute to a variety of problems in adulthood among them depression, inability to maintain intimate relationships, marrying an addict, or becoming addicted. While continuing to recognize alcohol as the primary addiction within families, this 2nd edition of It Will Never Happen to Me broadens the concepts to include addictive disorders such as other drugs, money related addictions, food disorders, relationship, sex and work addictions and expands upon the family rules and roles, family violence and shame. Changing Course is the sequel to It Will Never Happen to Me, and is specific to any and all family issues impacted by chronic loss that emanates from physical or emotional abandonment. Whether your family life was too chaotic, rigid, enmeshed or disconnected you endured abandonment experiences. As a result, your world-view has been colored by chronic loss that still dictates how you live your life today. In this book Claudia offers a framework for understanding the recovery and healing process from childhood family pain that has carried forward in your life and she will help you to understand the beliefs and behaviors that have perpetuated your pain.
