    Excellent. It is so diffcult to move beyond years of abuse. It is so difficult to find forgiveness for the person who was the abuser and for yourself. This book is helpful. You have to put in the work, but it is worth it. I also read, "Daddy's Hands" by Dr. Rita Makela. It tells the story of child sexual abuse through the voice of the child. It is very graphic and diffcult to read (child sexual abuse isn't pretty) but it is helpful to know that you are not alone and that other people can understand how you feel.

    Great book!

    I have already found this book to be very helpful with clients working through abusive histories. I have noticed that many other clinicians have this book as well.

    If Nothing Has Worked Try Writing

    Laura, you are right on. Your book is a perfect way of working through the clouds of the past. It is a great tool for the shy, or those who may still be ashamed to discuss the pain of their life, to use writing to dig up those long forgotten places that need healing. I would encourage readers not to write in the book, use a separate journal. They can do it within the privacy of their home. You've even provided an out for those who are still in denial by telling them if there is a section that is not you, change it, or blame it on you. Highly recommend!!

    It really is helpful

    This workbook is an enlightened approach to healing. My therapist reccommended this book, and I have found it to be so helpful in my own healing. The work I have done with the book has greatly enhanced my therapy, empowering me to actually use a word that I have hardly used all my life: NO. I have also learned it's ok to be angry, and you dont have to forgive and forget. I truly wished I had this book before I confronted the man who molested me 28 years ago. I was not prepared, though the conversation over the phone was positive. Had I been better prepared, the ending would have been better. This book has shown me the errors in my thinking, and it has helped me face the dark secrets that I have kept hidden all these years.

    It doesn't get better than this book.

    In this excellent workbook, Laura Davis shows each survivor of child abuse {of all kinds}how to turn the traumatic and the shocking into the simple and the ordinary. A thorough and very important book championing the quiet and personal recovery of the child and the adult while advocating for the social recovery of a society stuck in its own ignorance and injury. Very simply, every man and women needs to own this book.
