Hard going, but worth it:)

This book definately has the potential of being incredibly helpful. I share the concerns expressed in some other reviews that it may be too hard hitting. Obviously, it is aimed at a vulnerable group, who may not have a support network to help them while they use this book.
I found some of the exercises just too `out there` for me, though I can understand why they`d help some people.
I have some concern for those who have experienced abuse within a religious setup who use this book, as it is rather pushy on the spiritual level. Though it may be difficult for those who were abused in such settings, it may be best that those parts of the book are just not used. It is a workbook to help the reader, and not every part will be helpful for every reader.
However, back to the positives! It`s very clearly written, therefore is accessable to most. I have found it to be worthwhile, though very challenging.
