Product Description

Published USA, 2006
This book addresses the needs of women who have left abusive relationships. In a very systematic manner, the authors lead women through the stages of recovery. Consideration is given to lingering feelings of love for the ex-partner; loss and grief; emotional functioning; stress; the children of the abusive relationship; the reactions of others in your life; and more. Self exploration exercises and activities for personal growth are dotted throughout the book. Now in its second edition, the authors include updated information and resources while encompassing a wider range of individuals and the relationships in which abuse and violence occur. The new edition also provides a new emphasis on safety assessment which has increasingly been shown to be a critical factor in recovery.
