Featured Book - Passport to Independence: A Good Lives Model Workbook


Many treatment programs for persons with sexual behavior problems use a Good Lives framework that suggests that successful people are able to manage their lives in a variety of important domains. However, some of those domains can be a bit challenging for clients to fully appreciate and understand. Passport to Independence is not a treatment curriculum in and of itself. Rather, it is a collection of exercises that treatment providers and clients can use to make concepts such as “community” and “being good at work and play” clearer and easier to incorporate into clients' lives moving forward. Passport to Independence covers all of the components of life that clients in treatment need to consider to be successful.

At last! This guided workbook, Passport to Independence, focuses on an extremely important area. It is a welcome resource that will make treatment more accessible to many clients. The Good Lives Model has been helpful to clients and professionals alike around the world. Robin Wilson and Peel Behavioural Services has done us all a tremendous favor with this project.
