A history of a childhood abuse is not a life sentence. Here is hope, healing, and a chance to recover the self lost in childhood. Drawing on his extensive work with Adult Children, and on his own experience as a survivor of emotional neglect, therapist Steven Farmer demonstrates that through exercises and journal work, his program can help lead you through grieving your lost childhood, to become your own parent, and integrate the healing aspects of spiritual, physical, and emotional recovery into your adult life.

This book was so validating! I'm currently doing trauma recovery therapy andthis book brought a lot of thing's together for me. The exercises weren't for me at all, but the rest of the book made up for it. I only wish the author had left that out and possibly shared more stories or practical coping methods.
highly recommended for anyone who was or thinks they may have been abused as a child.
