A Healing Opportunity Jun 8, 2007
This is the best book I've ever read for survivors of child abuse and those who support them.
It is an easy read and filled with postive healing messages.
I bought copies for friends who were wounded as children and will use the book in my counseling practice.
Help for survivors May 15, 2004
This is a lovely book. I think that anyone who makes it through childhood has had to deal with some abuse. Unfortunately, some deal with much more than others. Patti's book is a compassionate, thoughtful book that lights a light on what can be a dark path. I would highly recommend this book to those fighting to take back their lives. This book will help.
Compasionate insight for partners of survivors Mar 26, 2004
I have listened to adult survivors, and professionals who treat them refer to Ms. Sherlock's meditations for the survivor as a "voice that has been there." But I did not understand the depth of understanding until after reading the book I realized that I had been given the opportunity to get a peek of the world throught the eyes of a survivor. If you are a survivor, you will find these compasionate meditations a comforting day-to-day guide through the wilderness. However, if you are not a survivor, and you are in relationship with someone who is; you will find insight here even your partner cannot provide.
