This presentation will be a time to gather awareness about women in recovery in the realms of self-soothing, self-care and healing. It will showcase awareness about what most women truly need beyond going to a meeting, making a phone call, eating, sleeping and bathing.  All women in recovery are ‘breathing’, but often times women will, metaphorically, hold their breath, try and breathe for others, breathe too shallow, or somehow manage to stop breathing. Join us in learning more about personal boundaries and agreements that cultivate internal wisdom and healing.


  1. Identify self-care feelings in addiction recovery, the beliefs and cognitions associated and activities that can support them.
  2. Learn three neurobiological/physiological responses the body gives women when “breathing” (aka self-care) is being neglected or denied.
  3. Identify how self-care must be nurtured differently AND individually for recovering men and recovering women.
