healing help Mar 8, 2008
this workbook is a great accompaniment to The Courage to Heal - Third Edition - Revised and Expanded: A Guide for Women Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse. i worked with a survivor of sexual abuse as she went through both books simultaneously. each session, we would review what she read and gleaned from the 2 texts. there was an appropriate amount of overlap, but she also found that she learned some very different and equally helpful things from each book. the more information and guidance, the better. both are great resources. one caveat is that the book can be overwhelming for some people, and other treatment to break into the territory of recovery may be necessary first.
A Must if you were sexually abused Jul 26, 2007
This book is a true gift - to me and to anyone that was abused in any way, not just sexually.
A workbook for a journey Jan 19, 2007
This workbook is paperback and has lots of room for notes and comments. Well construsted and felxable for use as a workbook. For any survivor this is a very needful journey. This book and its author has gathered the tools that many have but don't know how to use and helps us understand what to do and how to do it. I have greatly benefitted from this. It is a book well recieved by my therapist. For all survivors and their partners and families this is a book that gives hope, understanding and reassurance. Well worth it.
Workbook is my Guide to Healing Jun 30, 2006
Just as The Courage to Heal was my Bible in helping me get through the crisis stage of sexual abuse revisited, helping me to decipher what it was I was feeling, and that it was perfectly normal, probably more normal than anything in my life ever had been, and letting me know what I may be going through next, and how people might react to me, ect.....This Courage to Heal Workbook is my homework in learning to become the person I should have started out as. I do a chapter a day, but you can do it a chapter a week, or at your own pace. Pre-reading The Courage to Heal is not necessary, either. It's all self-explanatory. Encourages one to give lots of deep thought to differing topics and to answer honestly and in depth. I strongly recommend this workbook to anyone struggling to heal the wounds of childhood sexual abuse. It allows you to get to know the real you inside all of the protective layers that have been unconsciencously piled on over the years....not who you want people to know, but who you really are, and who you were really meant to be. A bright shining star!
