Find Your Way to Freedom Today!
If you were abused or neglected as a child, chances are that you have been your whole life, whether you are a man, a woman, or a teen. Child abuse so mangles the personality that the victim unconsciously attracts abusers throughout the life cycle. Lies about yourself were planted deep in your mind by the abuse, and you still believe them. They are crippling your life! Do you have any of these signs?
You have symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
You feel like a second-class citizen.
Nobody understands: they ask, "Why can't you get over it?"
You have escaped one abuser only to end up with another.
Until you understand exactly what the abuse did to you, you cannot get free. You can stay in therapy your whole life and never get a clue. OR you can unravel the mysteries once and for all and bring everything to light by reading AM I BAD? Recovering from Abuse. A great resource for victims, therapists, and group work.

The Most Important Book for Healing from Abuse!!! Jul 24, 2008
I am a survivor of all kinds of abuse. I also am a student that has been seeking the best way to heal from abuse, for myself and for others. So many times I have talked with clinicians or the average person and they have no understanding of abuse and definitely not how to heal from it. As many therapists as there are there are also as many opinions or guesses on how to help victims heal. Many have lost all sense of logic when it comes to dealing with abuse. Fr Heyward Ewart PhD has found the missing link to how to heal. He is logical and clear and his message is of extreme importance to those who want to heal and those who want to help others heal. It is refreshing and encouraging to know that there really is help out there! You can heal! You are normal and reacting to something that is abnormal. Most people who have survived trauma suffer from complicated Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), they don't have "mental illness" and they need to be understood and not insulted anymore! The original abuse is enough, the mental health community needs to get its act together to treat these survivors in the way they deserve. This book describes the way to accomplish that, to be an effective healer, to give the right message and to hear the right message. You are NOT bad. But if we don't hit the root of the original message that was given to us, we will believe the lie. But we don't have to anymore... Lisa Plumb

"It's all your fault! You brought this on yourself! If you would have done something different, this wouldn't have happened to you!" Ah yes, these are things an abuse victim may hear. Or they may simply believe. Do you know someone who has been abused? Perhaps it was a close friend or family member. Or maybe it was you yourself who was abused a year or many years ago and you are still dealing with the effects of it all. Your natural reaction, when something like this happens to you, is to blame yourself. Traumatized people often find themselves abusing alcohol, drugs or others but there is something much less destructive.
Heyward Bruce Ewart has created the book "Am I Bad?" to help victims, parents and therapists. There are various tests included in this book which can help determine whether the victim is suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. There is a test for concealed child abuse and a domestic violence inventory questionnaire throughout its pages, descriptions of what effects the abuse has taken and how you can break free. This book is not meant to take over the work of a qualified therapist, but to help therapists and those dealing with abused people.
No two cases are exactly alike. What happened in one case didn't happen quite the same in another. Just like each victim may react differently in dealing with what happened to them. "Am I Bad?" is an excellent resource!
