    This book saved me.

    I was molested as a child, and this book helped me understand myself a little better. I had not realized how just how much of my anxieties, responses to situations, personality, and just my every day to day life, were caused because of what happened to me as a child. This book takes you through a program of healing. It has you ask yourself questions, and answer others, and gives you ways to help move on from your horrible and terrifying past. EVERY PSYCHOLOGIST SHOULD READ THIS!!! It might help you help your patients more if they were victims of incest.

    Invaluable Resource for Survivors of Sexual Abuse/Incest and Therapists

    If you or someone you care about is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, this book should prove invaluable to your recovery. Most people realize that childhood sexual abuse is traumatic, but not everyone understands or recognizes the serious and often life-long effects.

    The author of this valuable book, Marjorie McKinnon, has written extensively how survivors can work to move beyond the trauma of abuse. With hard work and patience, it can be done. She pulls no punches, and never trivializes the difficulty of dealing with this problem. She has set the program forward with a really useful acronym, REPAIR, to illustrate the steps a survivor and their friends and family or therapist needs to take to begin the process of healing. Written in a style that is very easy to understand and to follow, the survivor will work through 6 different steps to recovery.

    Numerous therapists have recommended this process, and I believe it could be an invaluable tool both for professionals and caring friends and family members of survivors. Any one wanting to move beyond the trauma of incest and childhood sexual abuse can find hope, healing and care within these pages. Information is also given about support groups and finding them, an invaluable resource that many people are unaware are available to them.

    A Journey that gives the reader hope!

    Repair - a recovery journey from childhood sexual abuse. I am a victim advocate and have used this book with survivors I work with. I never get tired of readers saying to me ".... this is so what I have been experiencing" It is set up in such a way to let the reader go at their own pace. Details warning signs and it provides such incredible tools in a journey that otherwise is so dark and lonely. It truly is a miraculous book providing its readers with a glimpse of hope for the future.

    Repair your life workbook Supporting a program for recovery from incest
    and childhood sexual abuse by Marjorie Mckinnon ISBN: 978-1-61599-101-3
    This book is a six step prgram that will help abuse victims transform
    their life for the better. The book gives you the tools to learn how to
    construct a mirror to change the bad messages to reflect healthy
    replaceed messages that the abuser has given to the abused. This book
    covers the fears that most people have since the abuse. It shows how to
    overcome problems and how to find the courage and healing. The best part
    of the book I think is the suggested websites that gives more insight to
    recover from the abuse. I recommend this book to every one who has
    suffered from abuse or that knows someone who has. It is not easy to
    overcome abuse but this book can help everyone to understand better and
    to begin to heal from the abuse. I have given copies to friends and
    family of mine who I thought could and would benefit from it.
