Editorial Reviews

Review

“This is a powerful workbook. I recovered a part of me that I thought was lost forever. I finally got the answers to a lot of unanswered questions that I’d had for a long time. Things finally started to make sense.”
—Penny, a survivor



“This work is empowering. Copeland and Harris’s workbook was an integral part of helping me unpack my trauma baggage. It’s a ‘must have’ book for any woman dealing with the devastating effects of trauma.”
—Yvonne, a survivor



“I don’t think I was even aware of how much pain I was in until I started the recovery process. By the time I finished the thirty-third session, I felt like I’d been released from a prison and could begin experiencing life without fear and dread.”
—Anis, a survivor



Healing the Trauma of Abuse should not only help break new ground in the mental health field, but offer individuals skills that will give them the personal power to heal. I congratulate Mary Ellen and Maxine for taking on this task and delivering a wonderful tool for us to use.”
—David W. Hilton, Director, Office of Consumer Affairs, New Hampshire Division of Behavioral Health

I was abused as a child and later continued to involve myself in relationships with emotionally abusive partners. I've been in and out of counseling for years, but I never realized how much the trauma of those younger years have impacted how I think, feel, and relate to experiences and people today. I purchased this book on the advice of my current counselor. I have to say that after a month of working in the workbook, I can already tell the difference in myself and my behavior. I would recommend this workbook to anyone who has been abused and is seeking to reclaim their lives from the hopeless heap of dispair and depression that so often occurs to those who have been vicitimzed.

I am really thankful for the women who co-authored this workbook. It really encourages healthy healing, self-love, self-confidence and most helpful for me, a positive self-image. I was even more impressed with the book because it affirms everything I am working through with my counselor, and she can help me through these gentle yet emotional steps. I highly recommend this text for all women yearning to heal their mind, body and spirit split. It is also a helpful text for women who struggle to name their traumatic experience as abuse due to all of the social taboos.

I work in a mental health office and I use this workbook alone and with the TREM model. The clients that I have used it with enjoy it and have found it to be very helpful in their recovery.

This is an excellent resource for therapists who are working with clients who have experienced trauma. I use it for "homework assignments" that clients do between sessions.
