Jerry Moe is one of the most incredible people I've ever met. To be in his presence as he talks about "his kids" is something hard to capture in words. All of us listening, most of us battle hardened pilots and airline professionals, had tears in our eyes - as did he - while he talked about them. This book is Jerry's language in written form and I found myself wiping my eyes a number of times as I made my way through it.
I defy you to buy the book, read it, and not feel it in your heart. For people who think kids are too young, too distracted, and too "anything" not to have been radically affected in an alcoholic/addicted home, this is a MUST READ book.
Jerry works his magic with these kids who somehow instinctively sense that he loves them and cares about each and every one of them; that they can share their innermost hidden secrets because they trust him. Watch the individual journeys as they move from the demons within: incredible pain, fear, secrecy, defiance, and resistance, to freedom, and the discoveries that will affect them for the rest of their lives. Well done, Jerry....very, very well done!
"Understanding Addiction and Recovery Through a Child's Eyes" is Jerry Moe's latest book about children of addictions. It is a solid work that moves easily from the emotional stories of young children to the clinical implications of working with them. The reader is witness to the miracle of recovery for the child and sometimes for the adult. It is based on the belief that all members of a family system can and do recover from the generational disease of addiction.
This book is helpful for both professionals and for family members with many suggestions and techniques for all. Most importantly, it is a testament to the resiliency and potential of our most precious resource...our children.
