Industry Reviews

"An insightful, compassionate, practical and readable guide for survivors of hurtful childhoods." -- Gloria Steinem "This book provides valuable tools for adults abused as children. The title is too modest. The techniques provided not only help 'get through the day' but also empower the reader to gradually mitigate and eventually overcome the effects of painful past experiences." -- Yvonne M. Dolan, author of Resolving Sexual Abu "Nancy Napier has added to the healing literature for adult survivors of childhood trauma... In reading this book, I continuously thought of how useful it would be to any of my current patients." -- Christine A. Courtois, Ph.D., author of Healing
