Reviews - What do customers think about Healing the Wounds of Emotional Abuse: The Journey Worth the Risk?

Doesn't live up to the title, (but some good observations).  Feb 25, 2002
As I read the 76-page booklet (chapter 1 starts on page 11 and the last chapter is all resources) "Healing the Wounds of Emotional Abuse", I kept waiting for valuable advice and direction on how to do just that. Unfortunately, there was very little practical information to help the adult who was emotionally abused as a child. Benvenga does a good job of explaining what emotional abuse is, describing the difference between abuse and discipline, and identifying children who have been abused. Unfortunately, these insights are not coupled with information to help adults heal the pain of their own abusive childhoods. She also tells some hair-raising tales of abuse from her own childhood, and how as a result she ended up in an abusive relationship, but didn't think to leave. The story jumps to how she went on to be in a good relationship with a wonderful guy, but she doesn't tell you what she did to heal the past and transition into a healthy relationship. She makes the excellent point that there are two vicious cycles to be broken: the abused child must not become an abused nor abusive adult. Unfortunately, information on how to avoid perpetuating these cycles is scant at best. She does provide a chapter of resources one can turn to help heal from an abusive childhood and some advice on how to choose a counselor, but unfortunately, this book in and of itself is not a resource on how to heal the wounds of emotional abuse, other than 10 paragraphs of valuable insight and advice on forgiveness. Benevenga is a religious Catholic who states that turning to God is an indispensable part of our healing journey, and sprinkles her book with quotes from Jesus and the Catholic Church. An entire chapter, 13% of the book, is devoted to religious meditation and prayer, which may or may not match the orientation of the reader. Unfortunately, despite some good observations, resources, and religious inspiration for the religious, the book doesn't live up to its title.
For alcoholics only.  Jan 14, 2001
While this author provides great information for those needing guidance on healing wounds due to alcoholism, it provides little more. The title is somewhat misleading; I expected information across the spectrum of "abuse".
