"Rigorous honesty" is a foundational principle of recovery programs. Back when Alcoholics Anonymous was first started, the men and women who initially created the program realized that without a firm commitment to rigorous honesty, meaningful recovery would not develop.
Many claim to believe that the truth will set us free, but they continue to hang on to various falsehoods, sometimes knowingly and sometimes completely unconsciously. Recent research has revealed the function of chronic lying as a protective defense mechanism, as well as how radical honesty begins to reshape the brain in ways crucial to healing and recovery.
In this webinar, Dr. Jake Porter will discuss the vital role of rigorous honesty for those seeking to recover from addiction and trauma. He will unpack the neurobiological function of both dishonesty and honesty, and he will give practical tools for starting to live as a radical truth-teller in all relationships.
