So, I cannot recommend this book as part of an affective regimen of therapy.
I believe readers should note that the book was written 15 years ago, and there has been much improvement in psychology and psychotherapy. I would have given five stars if this were to be written ten years ago, but due to the gap in time and situation, I had to reduce it to four stars. It is still a great book as far as understanding your association with your care takers.
but it's still not a lot of help to a person who has been abused. It's really more for therapists to be honest, and that does me little good, to be honest. but I'm still glad I got the book,a nd I don't regret getting it. Some of them are a waste.
The second section, "Your Recovery", contains an expansive collection of physical and emotional exercises. Each is accompanied with an outline of healthy behaviour. I guess each person has their own recovery schedule and prefered methods so the the exerecises may not suit everyone. Most of them didn't suit me but at least this section acted more like a compass needle to what is strived for in recovering.
This book is a definite stop on the road to recovery and a good reference companion after you move on.
I highly recommend it.

There were pages missing in my book. But the book is all supposedly real life situations that seem to be hypothetical in my opinion. Not helpful at allPublished 3 months ago by I Love Amazon
Steven Farmer's book is outstanding and worth reading by every adult that was abused in childhood. It is hard to believe that so many parents don't know that they are abusers. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Christine Villarino
