Healing the Wounded Soul
A survivor of childhood sexual abuse, Peterson recounts in clear and helpful detail the source of her deep shame, the difficulties she encountered in developing as a human being, and the healing roles of faith and her own independent investigation of spiritual truth in achieving a lasting positive self-image and the capacity to help others. Her book outlines a remarkable journey of recovery accompanied by traumatic events, therapy, misdiagnoses, and an evolving personal philosophy based on spiritual insights gleaned from performing as an artist, her experiences with Baha'is and Baha'i teachings, and intensive study of anger and codependency. Her story will inspire millions of women and men who have endured abusive childhoods and still search for healing.
