From the Back Cover
The very first stop to take in emotional healing is to become aware of and to acknowledge that, "This is human stuff... I sure don't have to like it, but it's real, it's normal, and it matters."
You are not alone in your pain. This book looks at the lives of four people -- Survivors -- who've gone through some rough experiences and are plagued by significant emotional despair. They can't just ignore it -- their feelings are dominating their lives. These are not cases of mental illness, but examples of ordinary human beings living through painful times, who learn the strategies for tapping into the inherent capacity to heal from deep emotional wounds.
--Michael J. Mahoney, Ph.D.
