When confronted with an abused child, our first impulse is to drop everything and provide comfort, get him or her out of danger, and find out what the hell is going on at home. It’s obvious that the child is helpless, in trouble, and needs protection. Parents or not, we instinctively know what to do: We take care of the child. But what if the child is you? Pioneer and 30- year veteran in the field of trauma and sexual abuse Dr. Arlene Drake lays out a powerful way to repair the damage of childhood abuse and its lasting effects, by teaching you what your parents couldn’t: an invaluable set of skills and practices that will give you the resources to live as a healthy, happy adult. She’s successfully helped over 1000 adults in their journey to recover from trauma, sexual abuse and endless therapy. With the clear path her book provides, you can finally acknowledge that the suffering and the pain can stop. The destructive patterns can end. You can graduate into a life beyond “abuse victim,” take the power back from your abusers and finally be at peace.
