El Pensamiento Adictivio (Addictive Thinking)

Como distinguir y corregir sus conductas codependientes

Author Abraham Twerski reveals how self-deceptive thought can undermine self-esteem and threaten the sobriety of a recovering individuals and offers hope to those seeking a healthy and rewarding recovery.

Que es el pensamiento adictivo? Cuales son las causas y los sintomas de las conductas de codependencia? Sin lugar a dudas pocos campos de la investigacion de los quehaceres humanos han producido tantos especialistas como la dependencia de las sustancias quimicas. El alcoholismo y la farmacodependencia estan colmados de expertos, tanto nacionales como internacionales, cada uno de ellos con su verdad. Sin embargo pocos han trabajado sobre los procesos de conocimiento que se dan en los adictos. Editorial Promexa pone ahora al alcance de los lectores mexicanos una obra clasica sobre el pensamiento adictivo. A lo largo de 23 capitulos el autor logra una amplia y estudiada relacion de situaciones y caracteristicas de los adictos. El doctor Twerski se centra en los aspectos criticos del pensamiento adictivo y, con una admirable economia de palabras y frases, explica este tipo de pensamiento, nos lo demuestra claramente por medio de ejemplos elegidos con cuidado y explora la importancia de dicho pensamiento en una variedad de situaciones que incluyen el conflicto, la culpa, la verguenza, la ira, el manejo de los sentimientos, las defensas, la espiritualidad y la codependencia. Esperamos que El pensamiento adictivo ayude a descubrir nuevos caminos en el conocimiento de cada uno de los lectores.
