This Wasn't Supposed to Happen to Me: 10 Make-or-Break Choices When Life Steals Your Dreams and Rocks Your World This book has the same life changing affect to me as The Road Less Traveled. Dr. Smallwood's compassion for helping people really shows in her writing. This book gives practical and comprehensive steps in recovering from experiences of trauma that are based on research, personal, and professional experiences. She incorporates faith in the recovery process and exposes many false teachings that hinder the recovery process. As she said "It's not what happens to you, it's what happens in you that counts".

As a survivor of trauma, I found Dr. Bev's book to be a road map for how to get through life with a plan to get past being a "victim" and become a "survivor." Her book offers a true plan for recovery.
There were times while reading when I thought, "my gosh she knows exactly what happen to me." Her book is easy to read, easy to understand, and offers a plan which is easy to follow. I'm impressed with Dr. Bev's ability to offer so much useful -- real life -- information in her book.
