People with a compulsive stealing disorder often feel helpless about their compulsion and hopeless they can ever stop, even after they have been arrested and face frightening charges, jail time, and/or loss of relationships. Taking Back What’s Been Stolen offers hope by providing a program based on the accumulated knowledge of decades of experience helping people stop stealing. The first workbook written for people with kleptomania/compulsive stealing disorder, it offers effective and practical methods to stop this destructive behavior, gain control of their lives, and become free to create a life of choice, and ultimately of deeper meaning. Note: If you are a therapist and are considering using this workbook as part of treatment, you may want to consider contacting the Pathways Institute ( for training and consultation to work in this area of specialization.
