An excellent book for counselors, pastors, or friends of those walking through the harrowing experience of life after sexual abuse I found Langberg compassionate and incredibly practical I will keep this book on my shelves for as long as I m counseling as a reference point for helping others walk through the healing process Christ desires for them as their Redeemer.
excellent book that gave me a lot of advice regarding counseling survivors of sexual abuse though the book tends to focus on those who have sustained long term abuse, i found it helpful for rape victims and people who have been molested as well comes from a balanced Christian perspective.
provides an accessible and practical framework for therapeutic work with abuse survivors heavy stuff, but good nice to have some idea of how to approach this delicate, devastating, and all to prevalent issue.
Excellent book if working with a survivor She gives excellent handles and practical ideas on helping people I will re read this one.
Awesome book that will inspire and equip you to serve and care for survivors of sexual abuse.
