|About the Book|
Leaving Abuse Behind is a concise guide and workbook for the adult who is healing from having been abused in childhood. Whether the abuse was sexual, verbal or physical in nature, if it was serious enough to produce severe trauma, this book can help. Designed to supplement psychotherapy and other healing modalities, the book sets out the steps needed for healing, and discusses the phenomena a formerly abused individual commonly encounters during the process of coming to terms with the past in order to go forward into a full and happier life. Used conscientiously, Leaving Abuse Behind is an invaluable tool for personal healing. Leaving Abuse Behind is the most powerfully effective book available to assist people moving beyond the scarring of abuse. It provides hope and direction in a clear and usable manner. Harvey R.
