the courage to heal workbook

I purchased this book on recommendation of my therapist. I am a survivor of emotional, physical and sexual child abuse. I almost killed myself during the last year. After having 4 doctors, who did not know my childhood background, recommend I get into therapy, I finally did. I am reading tons of books and filling out the courage to heal workbook, as I start addressing these childhood tradgies. The most important thing I have gained from the book so far, I'm not crazy, I'm not alone (the numbers are staggering), my negative behavior can be modified, and I can possibly find peace and stop negatively impacting all the people I come in contact with. Iif you are a survivor, or suspect that you are, read this and anything else you can get your hands on. You deserve to have what happened to you validated and to seek help to improve your life and peace. Thanks to all the people out there that can say "INCEST" and are trying raise public awareness and provide support so all of us survivors can heal and stop the pain. I am 49 years old, female and was sexually violated by two offenders. I talked about the first offender, my uncle, when I was 18, it got swept under the rug and basically justified by saying I was mentally unstable. The memories of my father are just now presenting themselves. Your not crazy and it's not your imagination, and this book does a fantastic job explaining and showing how badly this affects your adult life and especially your relationships.

Why I Like this workbook....

I have used this book for about 4 years now...both in therapy and on my has been an excellent tool for helping to develop new coping skills and for learning more about the kind of support that i have/need.....I HIGHLY recommend that you have some kind of support when doing this workbook....because it can be very intense....but it's worth it....

This book has changed my life

The Courage to Heal Workbook (and it's companion book) are the best books I have read on the subject of healing from Child Sexual Abuse. And I have read a lot! This book does as it's title suggests - it encourages the growth of courage in dealing with difficult issues. While the work is challenging, it is also very hopeful. I have developed new coping skills and I have improved my relationship with myself and with others. With the help of this book and it's companion I feel I am getting to a place where dealing with my past abuse is manageable rather than overwhelming, as it has felt in the past. I would recommend this book to anyone who is a survivor of childhood sexual assault. It is a fantastic resource.

I started the "Healing Process" because of this book!

A friend suggested this book when I struggled with my memories of childhood/adult incest and sexual abuse. It helped me realize I was not "crazy!" I have had this book for many years now, and have read alot of books on abuse. I believe this is the best book I've ever read to aid in my recovery. It was a difficult book to read, but worth it, as it has made me aware of many of the issues that I did not even realize existed. As a person with DID(MPD)I blocked alot out. This book helped me to come to terms with my abuse. For the first time I read "You don't have to forgive!"

This book saved my life

The courage to heal workbook was recommended to me by my therapist. Together we worked through the book. It made me think of things that I had for gotten. I started to realize just how much damage was done to me because of my abusers. This book has helped me more than I can say. I now realize why I started drinking more and have become addicted.I still work with my therapist every two weeks and we have made great progress because of this book. I recommend this book for surivors.
