Abused no more: recovery for women from abusive or co-dependent relationships
Human Services Institute/TAB Books, May 1, 1989 - Family & Relationships - 201 pages
This book offers hope to women victimized by a confusing and seldom understood problem called "double jeopardy"--involvement in a relationship marred by physical, sexual, or emotional abuse, and compounded by alcohol abuse. "A practical guide for the woman trapped in an abusive relationship and who needs to make the first step in stopping the pain".--Melody Beattie.
