Reviews about Getting Beyond Sobriety: Clinical Approaches to Long-Term Recovery (Jossey-Bass Psychology Series) (5):
Joni_Dep
Having only experience as an alcoholic in long-term recovery as a participating member of Alcoholics Anonymous, and no clinical training, the constant use of the word “addict” as a one-diagnosis-fits-all category is marginalizing of me as a human individual in a process of “uncover, discover and discard”––a dynamic process of self-motivated improvement. The author thereby invalidates Socrates observation that “The unexamined life is not worth living for a human.” and denies that dictum to the afflicted as well as the non-afflicted.

Amazing book- clarity and depth. For clinical and clients alike.

as a clinical psychologist who identifies as both a Humanistic and Gestalt Psychologist in clinical practice, a graduate level supervisor and instructor, and who works with individuals in recovery; i have found this book very useful in assisting those who identify as "in addiction/recovery" and those who struggle to identify and work through old stuck patterns of behavior. while speaking directly to those who work in the recovery process, the author also addresses a fundamental obstacle to any of us who seek to live a more fulfilled life, that is our tendency to avoid those experiences that are uncomfortable.

Wow!! This book is seriously blowing my body/mind! It is written from a clinical perspective and I see myself in each of the case studies. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has struggled with addiction of any type food, tv, sex, booze, drugs, etc... or who knows someone is struggling. It has changed my entire perspective on addiction, trauma and recovery. Thank You! Michael Clemmens you are a Jedi Master!!

I was excited to read this Gestalt approach to overcoming addictive behavior. I ended up being disappointed by the author's adherence to traditional disease model/12-Step thinking, rather than supporting the basic premises of humanistic and Gestalt therapy philosophy. In particular, the author remains stuck in describing people who have overcome addictive behavior as "addicts" or "alcoholics." Rather than seeing people as being dynamic and growing, he assumes the old "once an addict, always an addict" position. Similarly, he refuses to acknowledge that many people overcome their addictive behavior and learn to become moderate in their use. Toward this, he repeats the old circular logic that such people were "probably not real addicts in the first place." If the author were able to actually believe the Gestalt premises that he writes about in a more general context, including seeing "people" rather than "addicts," this book could have lived up to its potential.
