Literature Update: Twelve Steps of Adult Children Steps Workbook


Fellowship request that Steps 5-12 be expanded with additional questions and exercises. This publication is open for revisions. Please submit suggestions for additions to the workbook to [email protected]

New Working Title for the 4×4: The Laundry List Workbook – Integrating Our Laundry List Traits
We received tremendous response to this text. The Laundry List Workbook – Integrating Our Laundry List Traits seeks to expand the Fellowship Text’s brief description of the “Other” or Opposite Laundry List. The Other Laundry List outlines characteristics of how adult children may be acting out the effects of the original Laundry List traits. Wherever possible we incorporated the valuable insights, commentary and suggestions. Initial layout is completed.


We are looking for cover art for this book. The book’s size is approximately 22×30 cm, so a high-resolution digital image (approximately 300ppi) is needed. Please send photos or drawings to [email protected] Deadline for art submissions is June 15. Be sure to include a copyright release form. A copyright release form can be downloaded from our website at

We anticipate offering The Laundry List Workbook for sale in August.
