R.E.P.A.I.R. is a Six-Stage Program for abuse survivors that will transform your life forever!
  • Recognize and accept your adult problems stemming from childhood sexual abuse.
  • Enter into a commitment to transform your life.
  • Process your issues with tools and techniques that will enable you to become healthy.
  • Awareness to discover reality as you gather and assemble the pieces of the broken puzzle your life became.
  • Insight into the complete picture helps you begin to return to what you were prior to being sexually violated.
  • Rhythm recovers the natural rhythm you had before the incest happened, the blueprint that is the essence of your true nature, becoming who you really are.

REPAIR for Teens recognizes the unique issues confronting adolescent abuse survivors including peer pressure,
difficulties with school, acting out, the urge to self-soothe with cutting or unhealthy eating behaviors, running away and the possibility of living with an abuser in the family. Remember, 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys have been sexually assaulted by the age of 18. No teenager should be alone in trying to sort out their life after sexual abuse.

Editorial Reviews

Lauri C. Coates
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.
Juanita Rasmusson
REPAIR is 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. It 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.

Meet the Author

In 1988, prompted by severe depression and resurfacing memories, Marjorie McKinnon entered a program for recovery from incest, a journey that took almost five years to complete. During that time, she wrote about her experience, a chronicle of going from a place of despair to one of joy. That book, titled Let Me Hurt You and Don’t Cry Out was her first attempt to get published.

Unable to sell it, she spent the next five years developing a program on recovery from child sexual abuse. Despite being a non-professional, it was her belief that a program devised by someone who had walked the same road would be a sensitive and pragmatic resource. She titled that self-published book, "REPAIR: A Program for Recovery from Incest & Childhood Sexual Abuse" and used it as an accompaniment to seminars she taught in the Los Angeles area.

In the last ten years, Marjorie has completed a fiction trilogy that follows the life of Kathleen McGuire whose spirit guide, Jake, provides her with wisdom and direction from another world as she gets herself in and out of trouble. Three nonfiction works, "Mystical Experiences: Tales of The Inner Light", "It's Your Choice!", a post-recovery book, and A Common Sense Spiritual Path, as well as a mystery novel, "When First We Practice to Deceive" and a fiction work titled: "Here Lies," are all completed. "Hello, My Name is Marjorie," close to completion, is a sprightly and often humorous email account of her courtship with Tom McKinnon, her husband, whom she met on the Internet while doing genealogy research for the McKinnon clan (her name was also McKinnon). Another novel, After The Rain, and a nonfiction work called, Our Greatest Asset: The Elderly are works in progress.

Marjorie is currently doing speaking engagements in the northern Arizona area and is the founder of The Lamplighters, a movement for victims of child sexual abuse that emphasizes the importance of REPAIRing the damage. Feeling that a movement of one voice would give more power to survivors, she hopes one day to have Lamplighters all over the world. If you would like to find the nearest one or consider starting your own chapter, then please take a few moments to visit Lamplighter’s website:

    This book is an amazing resource for teens who have lived through the horrific ordeal of abuse, whether it's emotional, physical and most of all sexual abuse. One in four girls and one in six boys have been abused by the time they are eighteen years old.

    Each one of these special survivors deals with many different issues including difficulties in school, eating disorders, and acting out. Each one has their own journey of repair and transformation, but only after recognizing that there is a problem and committing to allowing the healing to begin.

    What a wonderful explanation of the 6 Stage Program or abuse survivors that will transform your life forever!
