This review is from: The Courage To Heal: A Guide For Women Survivors Of Child Sexual Abuse (Paperback)
Anyone ready to tackle the problems of childhood sexual abuse will not be disappointed when buying this book. Each chapter deals with a specific aspect of the effects of abuse: flashbacks/trauma, forgiveness, anger, recovery, for partners etc. and gives ideas for working through these issues. At the end of the book there are courageous stories written by women who were sexually abused as children - their stories, while heartbreaking, show the strength and courage faced by anyone who has been subjected to the injustice, trauma and horror of abuse. This is not a substitute for counselling but an aid; a good starting place from which to extract yourself from the mental torment and anguish that abuse unfortunately leaves all survivors with.
