If you or someone you care about is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, this book should prove invaluable to your recovery.  Most people realize that childhood sexual abuse is traumatic, but not everyone understands or recognizes the serious and often life-long effects. 

The author of this valuable book, Marjorie McKinnon, has written extensively how survivors can work to move beyond the trauma of abuse.  With hard work and patience, it can be done.  She pulls no punches, and never trivializes the difficulty of dealing with this problem.  She has set the program forward with a really useful acronym, REPAIR, to illustrate the steps a survivor and their friends and family or therapist needs to take to begin the process of healing.   Written in a style that is very easy to understand and to follow, the survivor will work through 6 different steps to recovery.  

Numerous therapists have recommended this process, and I believe it could be an invaluable tool both for professionals and caring friends and family members of survivors.  Any one wanting to move beyond the trauma of incest and childhood sexual abuse can find hope, healing and care within these pages.  Information is also given about support groups and finding them, an invaluable resource that many people are unaware are available to them.
