essential reading for survivors of sexual abuse or rape!, 18 Feb. 2003
I am a volunteer counseller at Worcesterhire Rape & Sexual Abuse Support Centre, and read both The Courage To Heal and Beginning To Heal (also by the same authors) not long after starting at the centre, I found both books very interesting and sensitive to the issues, they also include true stories of other womens experiences and practical tips to help anyone who is trying to come to terms with their experiences. Gives a good account of Rape Trauma Syndrome, a recognised reaction to experiences of rape and sexual abuse, I think anyone who is trying to make sense of their feelings around rape or abuse should read these insightful books - excellent!
