I am a survivor of a verbally and emotionally abusive relationship. I've read many self-help books on recovering from abuse and found this book to the the BEST! Each chapter specifically addressed issues I needed to deal with. I found the chapters on guilt and hind-sight bias to be LIFE CHANGING, not just with abuse recovery issues, but issues from throughout my life.

If you are still in an abusive relationship, get out first, then get this book to help heal. It is helping me tremendously and I would highly recommend it.

This workbook was recommended to me, by a counselor who deals with domestic violence victims and survivors. Her concern for me, which led to this book being recommended to me, was PTSD symptoms (which I didnt know I had been dealing with, since my divorce several years ago). PTSD happens to domestic violence victims, as well as combat veterans. I have just began to use this book; it says to work through it slowly, and thoughtfully. I had to have courage to begin this book, and answer the questions and think about what the authors intend for me to learn. This book isnt easy to do; but this book is worth the price, the time, and any emotional pain to set my mind, spirit and soul down a long road to recovery. I cannot go back, and undo the life I led that got me here, why or how; but this book will help me to understand and lead a better life in the future. For that, I thank both the counselor who recommended this book, and its authors.

This is an awesome book. It is what the Haven Women's Center uses to work with us in healing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder caused by Domestic Violence.
It asks lots of questions that make you think about the techniques that will help you heal. Easy to use whether you are in therapy or on your own!
1/28/2013 I am healed. No more trauma, no more jumping when someone does something unexpected. I am back to LOVING life!

Purchased this book for a friend who is... and is not... out of a domestic violence situation. It continues to control her life in a negative and destructive way that her friends recognize, but she does not. This book is an invaluable resource for someone who still needs to escape and recover ftom a domestic violence lifestyle even llong after the abuser has largely physically left their life.

This book is a step by step work out for those who are trapped in PTSD, for less than the price of a counselling session you to can work through things that are holding you back in life. I highly recommend this book to those who may be struggling to make sense of life after domestic violence has encroached on their past.

One of the most talked about trauma's is PTSD. While this book may focus a lot on domestic violence
many of our service men and women, are returning from war with PTSD. This book provides most of its insight into this problem with stories of how people learned they has PTSD, and the causes of it and their escapes from the violence in their lives and how they dealth with the after effects. The book has very good info on how PTSD develops and how it affects you. Shows you ways of handling negative thinking and stress, anger and low self esteem. It has lots of good questions. And also it shows how to identify potential abusers and deal with them in a positive manner. I would tell others suffering from PTSD to buy this book.

I got this book based on several recommendations, as I was suddenly having a lot of trouble with sleeping, flashbacks, inability to watch depictions of domestic violence, etc. after ending an abusive long-term relationship a few months ago. These "aftereffects" were all very confusing to me and this book is helping me sort it out and realize that what I'm experiencing is very common. I am very glad I have it. However, the first time I read it I think I tried to tackle too much reading/exercises at first. It opened some kind of emotional floodgate I didn't know I had, and I had a most unpleasant, weepy, sleepless couple days afterward. For that reason, if this is your first initiation to healing from DV like it was mine, I recommend taking the book (or any book on this topic) in small doses at first. This book is very well written, well organized, easy to follow and identify with, and so far been extremely helpful to me in changing my perceptions and thoughts for the better. Highly recommended.
