Description
It Went Without Saying invites the reader into a riveting story told by a mother, father and daughter—a story of their struggle with the roots of addiction. The reader discovers, along with the authors, how the addiction begins to take hold of each of them and grows into a threat so ominous that it almost destroys them. JOHN CHUPKA is the founder of The Forgiveness Center, a spiritually based practice of psychother­apy and transpersonal education in Troy, New York. A psychotherapist in private practice for 35 years, he has also produced CDs of healing meditations, Transcending for Men and Transcending for Women, which have had dramatic results. John received his MSW from Syracuse University and is a licensed clinical social worker. He has been trained in brief strategic therapy and Ericksonian hypnosis. He is also a creative humorist and a singer-songwriter. Joyce Quaranta Chupka coaches CEOs, exec­utive teams and individuals to create and implement inspirational strategic plans. She left her 30-year career as an executive-level public administrator, government lobbyist and community leader to write and to design a unique value-based vision process to assist her clients. Joyce holds an MPA from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. Both she and John are honored to be members of the Transformational Leadership Council. In the seven years of her sobriety, JAMIE CHUPKA has graduated from college with a bachelor’s degree in science, raised her daughter, worked as a clinician and as an HIV Prevention Educator. She hopes to return to college for her master’s degree while simultaneously working toward her CASAC (Credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor). Jamie continues to raise her beautiful, spirited, energetic daughter and is learning about self-worth, self-love and forgiveness.
