Editorial Reviews

Review

“This second edition of her valuable book is a vital asset to every therapist who seeks in-depth comprehension of ways to empower the survivors of incest…contains excellent guidance…a thorough index, an amazing reference section, guide to further reading and exhaustive appendices for both incest survivors and their counselors.” (Hypnosis Depot)

“Courtois has succeeded in integrating the explosion of knowledge and expertise developed over the intervening years into a comprehensive and authoritative second edition…She is one of those gifted professionals who can combine the kind of meticulous academicity, clinical wisdom, warmth and compassion that is so evident in Healing the Incest Wound.” (Dr. James Chu - APA Division 29 Newsletter)

“Twenty years ago, Dr. Courtois was a pioneer. Now she is a wise authority, Healing the Incest Wound has been a classic since it was first published, and has helped to enlighten and train a generation of practitioners. The second edition, which integrates new findings from many disciplines, will remain a classic for the next generation.” (Judith Herman, MD, author, Trauma and Recovery)

“It was hard to imagine how Christine Courtois could improve on what was already an enduring classic, but this second edition of Healing the Incest Wound represents a quantum leap forward. Dr. Courtois, in her usual extremely thorough, scholarly, and clinically astute fashion, has created a new classic. Every therapist should read this book, no matter what the focus of their practice...it creates the foundation for competence, and does so brilliantly and accessibly. Bravo, Chris!” (Laura S. Brown, PhD, ABPP, President, APA Division of Trauma Psychology, and Director, Fremont Community Therapy Project)

Format: Hardcover
I use this as a primary text in my Graduate level "Counseling victims of sexual trauma" class. It is not an easy read, especially for those who have gone through these issues. It is also a scholarly text, well researched and well written. If you are a survivor of incest, there are easier and possibly more appropriate books to read. If you are looking to understand the nature of the trauma and symptoms as well as some treatment methodologies, then this is the place to start. Dr. Courtois is a leader in the field, and this text reinforces that.

Format: Hardcover
This book was the most wonderful I had ever read on understanding the dynamics of incest, it's incredible impact on it's victims, and the importance of validation.
I found myself in many of the pages as the answers in this book connected all the dots to this horrific crime against it's victims. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has suffered through incest!

Format: Hardcover
I found this book very helpful as part of my healing processes. It states facts and addresses my brain with the psychology of the horrifying act of incest. This was exactly what I needed to try to understand the people in my life.
