Getting Past Your Breakup: How to Turn a Devastati&hellip by Susan J., JD. MEd. Elliott

I bought this book last September when my heart was broken and I didn't think I could ever be happy again. I can honestly say that the book had a massively positive impact on how I thought about my previous relationships and what I could hope for in the future.
I read a little bit every night before I went to sleep and it was like a little bit of medicine for the soul. At times the book is quite profound, and if you are at the point where you want to stop making the same mistakes in your life and with relationships - then this book is the best investment you'll ever make.
If you're really struggling post breakup then I can't recommend Susan Elliott enough, the chapter about how… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars TRULY THE WAY FORWARD, 11 Mar 2007
I bought this book after recently attending a conference about "denied" child abuse, Andrew Turnell and Peter Dale were the speakers, and I thought they were both rather wise and marvellous, so I bought their books.

As someone working in the frequently exploding minefield that is child protection, I found this book to be an inspiring and compelling read. The book has given me a whole new perspective, as it challenges conventional (and often quite scary) ways of working with these complex cases.

There are frankly too many thought provoking and head nodding moments to mention, but the idea that you don't necessarily need a'confession' to engage and work effectively with… Read more
