My fiance and I are both incest survivors. She has well over 200 psychological and self help related books. Half way through Repair she simply said "As it turns out- I only needed ONE book!"
This book has and is a huge part of our individual healing process and continues to be.
If you are reading this, most likely you have covered the same paths that we have.
It's a hard journey of not feeling worthy of love. Of sabotaging your happiness and your relationships. We could fill this entire review of stories of struggles or how we almost destroyed ourselves, but I think it's most productive to say, if you want to heal and to have peace- get this book.

REPAIR Your Life is a stage- oriented recovery program for adult survivors of child sexual abuse. This book is differs from other recovery literature for survivors in that it is written by a survivor and is based on her own experience of recovery.

Here stages of REPAIR are as follows:

* RECOGNIZE and accept your adult problems stemming from childhood sexual abuse
* ENTER into a commitment to transform your life
* PROCESS your issues with tools and techniques that you will enable you to become healthy
* AWARENESS to discovery reality as you gather and assemble the pieces of the broken puzzle your life became
* INSIGHT into the complete picture helps you begin to return to what you were prior to being sexually violated
* RHYTHM recovers the natural rhythm you had before the incest happened, the blueprint that is the essence of your true nature, becoming who you really are
(page 13).
This book is concise and I was impressed that she was able to convey information in a helpful and non-threatening manner. I did not see anything that would be terribly triggering, and I would feel comfortable passing this book along to someone new to healing. The stage system should feel comfortable for individuals who have worked the twelve steps or someone who appreciates taking something on that has step-by -step instructions.

Although the writer is not a therapist, her writing is evidence of plenty of her own work and reading. She emphasizes that she has found therapy and the 12 steps beneficial, but needed to find her own way. The book encourages healing work, whether it is done in therapy, support groups, or outside of these realms.

Incest and childhood sexual abuse are amongst the great social taboos of all time. As a result, we act as if they are rare aberrations, infrequently mentioned in a newspaper article about someone far from our part of town. Unfortunately, both are demonstrably common even in the ‘best of families’. The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study of 17,337 middle-class American adults found a self-acknowledged prevalence of childhood sexual abuse in 28% in women and 16% in men when routine inquiry was carried out. Sadly, this high prevalence concealed by shame and secrecy usually causes these individuals unconsciously to seek relief in various coping devices like food, alcohol, nicotine, promiscuity, and street antidepressants like methamphetamine. Although these coping devices often end in biomedical disease and shortened lives, their underlying causality typically remains unrecognized.

“Repair Your Life” will be of major help to these many hidden people, if they find their way to this book. It is one of several significant books by a woman who writes openly and perceptively, using her own experiences to take us down her path to an ultimately fulfilling life. This example of someone speaking intelligently and freely about the ordinarily unspeakable is a powerful starting point for those fortunate individuals who will find self-help here when so little else is visible to them. This is an important book.

I thought this book was a well-written self-help book by a sexual abuse survivor who has successfully addressed how destructive that abuse has been in her life. I bought this book for a friend who was abused as a child and read it before giving it to my friend. I am not an abuse survivor so I cannot say for sure how effective her program is, but it seemed like a well thought out program based on the authors experiences that can be broken down into manageable steps for someone who is struggling to address the emotional and psychological scars of childhood sexual abuse.

Repair - a recovery journey from childhood sexual abuse. I am a victim advocate and have used this book with survivors I work with. I never get tired of readers saying to me ".... this is so what I have been experiencing" It is set up in such a way to let the reader go at their own pace. Details warning signs and it provides such incredible tools in a journey that otherwise is so dark and lonely. It truly is a miraculous book providing its readers with a glimpse of hope for the future.
