A Journey to Healing After Emotional Abuse focuses on healing from domestic violence not only in the survivor’s heart, but also with her relationship with God. Step by step the survivor is taken through the healing process from dealing with the trauma, strengthening her relationship with God, helping children heal, and then moving forward into other relationships. The book made me feel like I had a friend sitting beside me as I worked through each section. The pain that emotional abuse creates can be very powerful, but the author’s advice and personal experience made it possible to heal. This book is a must read for any woman who has dealt with domestic violence and should become a tool used to start the healing process.
Caroline Abbott gently holds the reader’s hand as she walks them through the journey of processing trauma. This book provides step-by-step ways to move through the struggles of life after emotional abuse. The reflective questions at the end of each chapter will be helpful for my psychotherapy clients, as they think through their own feelings about their abuse. This book provides essential tools for those desiring to move on after emotional abuse. And for those of us supporting abused women, it provides a window into the internal struggles of these resilient women. – Amy Craig, M.A., L.P.C
