    I found this issue of Recovering The Self to be just as interesting (if not more) as the first issue. It has a great selection of book and film reviews, as well as interesting articles on abuse recovery and stress management. I particularly enjoyed the "veterans" article. Very interesting!!! I highly recommend this issue of RTS.

    This journal (Vol.1, No.1) encompasses themes full of hope, suffering, forgiveness, and peace; all subconsciously demonstrative in execution toward the development of a new substantial self- there are no self- help steps here. I must preface by stating that I came across Recovering the Self for the sheer purpose of reviewing it only to be face to face with my own self awareness that self victimization is as acute as any other oppression. I was feeling more or less self-assured before reading this journal when I started reading a story about forgiveness aloud to my mother and found myself choked up unable to confidently finish. This journal mainly addresses the severity of life difficulty with such encumbrances as the loss of a child, suffering from breast or prostate cancer, homosexuality; not the everyday woes of “normalcy” (and I say that in a truly literal manner). What I love about these journals is the compilation of multiple genres: non-fiction, poetry, fiction, film (in the 2012 edition) etc. making it easy for readers of many followings to connect and recover their own self even if by surprise.

    Recovering The Self: A Journal of Hope and Healing (Vol. 1, No.1) Author: Ernest Dempsey (Editor) Publisher: Loving Healing Press ISBN: 978-1-932690-09-5 This is the premier issue of Loving Healing Press' quarterly journal "Recovering The Self, A Journal of Hope and Healing. This excellent publication contains a wide variety of articles, poems, fiction, humor, book reviews and book excerpts. This information is provided by numerous well known authorities in the fields of psychology, metaphysics, social work and counseling. Specific works in the this volume include: Victims No More by Barbara Sinor, PhD; an article to inspire the reader to let go of past programming and thought processes and recreate life to reach the successes desired. Frank A. Gerbode, M.D., shares his professional insight into the theory of resilience and why some people seem to be more resilient when faced with trauma and/or stress. He discusses the use of Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) to work through the situation and build resilience. An article written by Sam Vaknin (author of 10 books about personality disorders and abuse in relationships) is entitled Sex, Gender and Personality Disorders. It takes an interesting look at gender identity and sexual preferences and whether thay have a specific genetic predisposition, along with a revealing look at the gender disparity found in diagnosing personality disorders. Interesting and insightful, with excellent quotes from key literature.. Dr. Janet Hall contributes the article "Helping Children Traumatized by Disaster" a well-done source of information to help children dealing with a variety of traumatic experiences. I look forward to reading additional volumes of Recovering The Self. This anthology truly offers much useful and thought-provoking information.
