This book is based on the Courage to heal by the same authors. It was published after the Courage to heal and appears to be a cut down version of it. I feel that it probably a better starting point than the Courage to heal for Survivors as it focuses on the issues and does not give too many personal accounts. From speaking to survivors I have found that many of them have found accounts from others to be distressing when they are beginning their healing. However professionals could well benefit from seeing the range of stories and their effects on individuals. As with the courage to heal The books covers the question 'Am I a Survivors' as some people question whether what happened to them was abuse. Looks at the linked feelings of grief, anger and how to move on and begin to heal Guidance on self destructive behaviour including low self esteem intimacy and sexuality. Gives insights to others close to the Survivor including partners family members and counsellors Gives information on further support. It is about a third the size of the Courage to heal but it is really up to personal choice if you want to buy the bigger book and only read the points you are interested in.
