Sexual and childhood abuse is one of the biggest problems facing society and the full extent of it is only just beginning to emerge. For those who have experienced abuse, their lives will be blighted in countless ways and many never recover from the effects of abuse. There is also a very destructive legacy of abuse that gets passed down through the generations. This book is in two parts. Part one looks at all the patterns and issues associated with abuse. Part two provides processes and exercises designed to rid abuse victims of the negative aspects of the past. This can be done by individuals or within a group context.
