this book has helped me in my darkest hours. now its time to pass it on to someone who might need it.. it was a lifesaver for me...
This is an absolute necessity for anyone seeking to overcome the effects of abuse.
The Courage To Heal is an inspiring, comprehensive guide that offers hope and encouragement to every woman who was sexually abused as a child-and those who care about her. The authors weave personal experience with professional knowledge to show the reader how she can come to terms with her past while moveing powerfullly in to the future.
You can read this out of chapter order, if you need to. It's a great companion on the road to recovery and healing... I highly recommend it. I hope to give it to someone in need.
Important manual for those dealing with sexual abuse
A lifesaver. I have purchased copies to give to others in this situation.
Very helpful book for adult survivors of sexual abuse.
This is a great healing tool for anyone that has been through any kind of abuse. The skills have helped me daily.
A great place to start for a survivor. Tons of information and helpful exercises.
I often heard that this book is pretty much the "Bible for survivors of sexual abuse". Wonderful resource - covers every aspect of recovery. The validation I found in this book, along with its resources helped give me the courage to reach out locally and find the help I needed for my recovery journey. I can't recommend it highly enough for survivors!
From the back cover: "...an inspiring, comprehensive guide that offers hope and encouragement to every woman who was sexually abused as a child and those who care about her"
Probably still the best book out for helping sexual abuse survivors.
Not sure why "4e" is in the title, no sign of that in the book.
I ordered this book for only one reason. I wanted to read it so I could review it on a blog. It's so bad, and so potentially damaging that I will not be offering my copy for swap. I will be burning it.
Written by two women with no credentials whatever, it is chock full of inaccuracies and outright lies. If you value your mental health, do not read this book.
