Overview

This collection of prose and therapeutic insights creates a powerful commentary on incest, rape, abuse, and the recovery process.
Women and men share their personal experiences of childhood abuse and walk with the reader along the path toward wellness. They reflect each stage of healing with a clarity that, while often painful, is also hopeful.
Addressing various aspects of abuse, including ritualistic abuse, multiple personality disorder, and partnering as well as providing a therapist's insights on the stages of healing, Triumph Over Darkness helps readers to understand recovery as a predictable process and see that healing is possible.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The voices Wendy Ann Wood has gathered are sorrowful, yet uplifting: they extend the language of love with messages of recovery. The book's straight-forward, instructive passages should be helpful to many victims in their struggle to become survivors and advocates. Triumph Over Darkness is empowered by its insistence on the triumph of simple human dignity." — Jason Barry, author of Lead Us Not into Temptation: Catholic Priests and the Sexual Abuse of Children
