Self-help books talk about how you need to "think positive" to heal from a traumatic past; this book shows you how instead you need to restructure the way you "feel" to overcome trauma and that, by so doing, your thought processes will improve as well.
This book is also unique in its affirmation of God's role in the healing process with solid scientific proof to back up this assertion, falling nicely in step with the Bah?'? Faith's core principle of perfect and absolute harmony between science and religion.
Romano McGraw is not only well spoken and humorous but also has a talent for presenting complex subjects in ways almost anyone can understand.
If you or anyone you know has ever been traumatized, this book will help you understand that person and their behavior from a fresh new perspective that's backed up by solid science. Even if you haven't been traumatized and don't know anyone who has been, at the very least this milestone in the history of psychology will move you. Or, if you're like me, it may well change your very perception of human existence.
This book would be helpful for therapist's needing to understand more fully the transformative nature that therapy can provide. Also I think young mothers could also benefit by understanding the choices that mothers make and the consequences in raising their children.
It's Not Your Fault was the fourth book that I was given, and the one that I was LEAST excited about by the title. I mean, we all inherently know that it's not a child's fault when something like this happens. But with my adult brain, I realized that I was hindsight quarterbacking the child that I was.... saying that I should have KNOWN better and I should've been able to help myself more. This book explained to me why I feel that way -- why MOST adults will blame the victim for their siutation, especially the more severe the suffering is. We, as human beings, do not and cannot accept that the world is not a fair and just place. It causes our own existence to be turned upside down. Therefore, a victim MUST be doing something to cause his/her problems. It was something that I realized that even I (as a former victim) was capable of!Read more ›
