Editorial Reviews

Gloria Steinem
“An insightful, compassionate, practical and readable guide for survivors of hurtful childhoods.”
Yvonne M. Dolan
“This book provides valuable tools for adults abused as children. The title is too modest. The techniques provided not only help 'get through the day' but also empower the reader to gradually mitigate and eventually overcome the effects of painful past experiences.”
Christine A. Courtois
“Nancy Napier has added to the healing literature for adult survivors of childhood trauma. . . . In reading this book, I continuously thought of how useful it would be to any of my current patients.”

    This Book is a Lifesaver

    This book is tremedous for someone who was sexually abused from the time they were 12 until they were 18 by there own father. It teaches you how to look inside yourself and work with the children inside that make you feel at the age of 43 like you are a child whenever the smallest stressful situation arises. I would encourage all sexual abuse survivor's to read this and actually do what the book instruct's you to do. It's hard work but very benficial. I like it so much that I am purchasing "Recreating Your Self"
