The Original Peer Support Recovery & Coping Skills Workbook & Curriculum -- Hope Worksheet
Gregorio* “Craig” Lewis believes in recovery with all his heart. Sometimes, life happens and things change. This author walked his talk straight into the gutter —living a fairly desperate and upsetting, yet transformative life while homeless— until a mere 4 years and 6 months ago. Now, he is living a new life, truly alive and well in the heart of Mexico. He is the evidence that if you want to get better, do the work, experience the improvements. Gregorio’s workbooks are for people like him: the poor, the unwanted, the blamed, the hurt, the labeled, the outcast, and the rejected. Gregorio’s workbooks are for people like you: the carers, the lovers, the educators, the agents-of-change and the healers. Everything you read in his books was learned and earned the hard way. Recovery is some of the hardest work possible. Do it, and keep doing it and maybe, just maybe, your dreams will also come true.
*Gregorio has given his permission for the PR CoE to share these three coping skills packets on their website. The public is free to download and use these packets.
