With experience comes wisdom Jun 4, 2008
I didn't read this book! I'm relaying my husband's critique. I read Forward's more recent book Toxic Parents and it was sooo helpful. My Christain counselor somewhat assigned it as homework between my 1st and second appointment. Wow! So we decided to try this one. My husband read both her books first as my personal screener (yes, he's that wonderful). He felt reading this book might be more of a hindrance to my healing since it so raw. Warning! It is not Christain, (neither is Toxic Parents) and has some thoughts that would be disturbing to a healing Christain. He felt it was more about telling tragic stories about incest vs ways to heal. He felt Forward grew a lot as a person and counselor between writing the two books. If you're new to the healing process of incest, I strongly recommend the Toxic Parents as a starter, then use [...] to find a local Christain counselor.
good for homework Jan 11, 2007
A good book to give to cleints as home work, but I would not suggest doing it on your own w/out support.
Freud must perish Nov 10, 2006
I was hoping to gain insight into the repercussions of incest. I couldn't get past the beginning of the book, as it was filled with Freudian pseudoscience.
Perhaps another revision is in order.
From the Publisher Oct 3, 2005
"Incest was once called the ultimate taboo. Today we realize that it is a reality with which millions cope on a daily basis. In this insightful and sensitive book, Dr. Susan Forward, bestselling author of Men Who Hate Women and the Women Who Love Them and renowned expert on sexual abuse and addictive relationships, uses twenty-five case histories--including father and daughter, mother and son, siblings, grandfather and granddaughter, mother and daughter, and father and son-to explore the traumatic effects of incest and to analyze its causes and consequences on every member of a family. In Betrayal of Innocence, Forward shows that the public's new awareness of the problem and increased availability of treatment can be of enormous benefit to victims and their families. By breaking the silence that has always surrounded this devastating subject, Betrayal of Innocence offers practical help and comfort to the survivors of child abuse and to those who love, live, or work with them."
One of The Best Mar 22, 2004
This is one of the best books I have read regarding the subject of incest and child abuse/molestation. It is clear and percise like that of "Beauty For Ashes", honest,truthful and courageous like that of "Nightmares Echo...It makes the reader understand the ramifications of Incest and the devastating effects on the child. I believe this book should be read by everyone in our society over the age of 15. Remarkable book!
