Overview

This story breaks new frontiers in what we know about repressed memories. The Invisible Girl is a riveting personal account of living in the aftermath of childhood physical and sexual abuse. It is based both on personal experience and the lives of hundreds of patients Sandra Dixon treated in 20 years as a mental health professional. Sandra grew up mute and detached from the world, feeling on the brink of insanity. Hidden in her mind were grotesque images that burst forth at any time without warning. She lived with the effects of repressed memories for 47 years before they surfaced and she was able to reclaim her life. She portrays her journey with courage, wit, humor, ,and a human spirit in search for answers.
