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.
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!
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.
