Debra Alessandra's inspiring messages for children
About the Author
Meet Debra Alessandra
Educator, consultant, counselor, mother, and grandmother, Debra Alessandra has spent most of her adult life in the company of children. With a double major in Sociology and Elementary Education, her career path has been two-fold as well. Both in the field of addiction and in the field of education. Alessandra’s heart is open to the needs of children. She has a knack for helping them feel valued and important. Whether in the classroom or engaging with children and families in recovery, this life long work has inspired her materials.
When recovery blesses a home, children are bewildered by the strange turn of events we refer to as sobriety and/or recovery. While children know something is different, most family members are not initially open to discussing their recovery efforts.
