Abstract:

Few walk away from the experience of abortion without some lingering emotional discomfort. Unresolved feelings of guilt, shame, and sadness may not surface until months, even years, after an abortion. These feelings can manifest themselves in more troubling ways, resulting in unstable relationships, self-destructive and addictive behaviors, depression, and low self-esteem. Experienced psychotherapists Dr. Candance De Puy and Dr. Dana Dovitch share their step-by-step approach to dealing with post-abortion pain or trauma, focusing on helping women chart a path toward emotional recovery and healing. Includes self-tests, exercises, and interviews with women who share their own post-abortion experiences.
