THE COURAGE TO HEAL - A Guide for Women Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse

THE COURAGE TO HEAL - A Guide for Women Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse

Ratings: (0)|Views: 281|Likes:
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. Although the effects of child sexual abuse are long-term and severe, healing is possible. The authors—Ellen Bass, a nationally known counselor, and Laura Davis, a survivor of child sexual abuse—weave personal experience with professional knowledge to show the reader how she can come to terms with her past while moving powerfully into the future. The authors provide clear explanations, practical suggestions, a map of the healing journey, and many moving first-person examples of the recovery process drawn from their interviews with hundreds of survivors.

“A ground-breaking book that will stand as a classic for many years to come.”
Sandra Butler, author of 
The Conspiracy of Silence
 
 
 “Don’t run away from it. Don’t bury it. Don’t try to produce a different reality getting all strung out on something, or eatingyour way through your feelings. Don’t slash your wrists. Just deal with it, because it’s going to keep coming back if you con-tinue living anyway. It’s painful, but you just have to keep going. It’s just part of life, really.”—Soledad, 28-year-old survivor“Give as much commitment to healing as you did to surviving for the last ten or fifteen years.”—Dorianne, 35-year-old survivor“There’s more than anger, more than sadness, more than terror. There’s hope.”—Edith Horning, 46-year-old survivor
