Dr. Berger and Herb K. are two of the foremost authorities on emotional sobriety and optimal recovery. In this program, which was recorded live in Santa Clarita in 2018, these two pioneers define emotional sobriety and demonstrate how emotional dependency interferes with our ability to achieve this important state of mind. During this day long workshop they will unpack the psychological and spiritual wisdom of Bill Wilson’s letter on emotional sobriety, explore the psychological and spiritual concepts that are related to emotional sobriety, and provide you with some tips and suggestions as to how to achieve emotional sobriety in recovery.
