Successful recovery often requires multiple attempts. With the understanding that relapse happens, we designed our Managing Your World In-Person Engagement Workbooks v2 and Teacher’s Guides for incorporation into recovery groups, counseling, and coaching as companion resources.
The Managing Your World offerings use Applied Learning principles to address 25 areas of stress that are most commonly faced by those recovering from addiction. This practical approach allows learners to follow participant-centered lessons that include direct application of skills to real-world situations relevant to ongoing recovery from addiction.

Get Started to learn how you can add Managing Your World to your tools for your participants.
Each lesson in Managing Your World is created with our implementation of Applied Learning. It begins with a personal story, followed by activities and reflective thinking, all related to that lesson’s stress theme subject.
You with your participants can navigate the lessons in the order that best suits your focus and their current challenges. For example, start with the In-Person Engagement Workbook v2, and step right into "Addressing Personal Triggers". This lesson could be helpful for someone feeling particularly challenged to maintain their sobriety.
Or jump right to "Grieving and Letting Go" if the current challenge has to do with significant loss.
As you will discover, the unique design of Managing Your World allows you to focus in on those topics that are most relevant to your participants current experience. The lessons can stand alone or implemented in sequential or dynamic order.
With our Applied Learning structure the Workbooks can also be studied at times and locations most convenient to the participant outside of your time with them.
The length of time to complete each lesson can vary from 20-40 minutes if read/worked through without interaction. Complete time per lesson when used interactively varies.
The Managing Your World In-Person Engagement Workbooks v2 (Standard and With Devotionals) contain 25 lessons.
