Publisher's Summary

The causes of Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder range from severe neglect to monstrous abuse. Many survivors grew up in houses that were not homes-in families that were as loveless as orphanages and sometimes as dangerous. If you felt unwanted, unliked, rejected, hated, and/or despised for a lengthy portion of your childhood, trauma may be deeply engrained in your mind, soul, and body.  

This book is a practical guide to recovering from lingering childhood trauma. It is copiously illustrated with examples of the author's and his clients' journeys of recovering. It is a comprehensive self-help guide for working through the toxic legacy of the past and for achieving a rich and fulfilling life.

Brought me clarity and powerful tools to heal...

This book was the most empowering book I have ever read (listened to) to date. I never knew I had Cptsd until I found this book, it has opened a window in my world and shed light on what I did not understand within myself. The author being able to relate and offer tools on overcoming Cptsd was a huge comfort. Since finishing this book the fog has truly lifted in my life. I can not thank the author enough for this book, he has given hope and healing to so many souls. The narrator delivering this book read it beautifully, he had a kind and clear voice it was appreciated. This is a must read/listen to book!

Narrator doesn't enunciate...

Really glad I've got the paper copy, this was unbearable. What? What? Repeatedly having to rewind, made it about 7 minutes into chapter 1 before I returned it. Just no.

Unreal

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist and I had been trying to figure out my own family of origin issues. This book single-handedly changed my life and allowed me to just be. I cannot fit a review about this book without becoming a dissertation. Instead I'll just say this: If you are a therapist that works with trauma, read this book. If you are a regular person who has had an abusive past, read this book. If you are a regular person and you know a friend who has experienced abuse, read this book. If you are trying to be a better person, read this book. If you want to understand human psychology in the most intensive and deeply emotional ways, read this book.

Thank you for taking the time to read this review. Best of luck in your journey <3

Life Changing

In 2016 after years of being on the treadmill of life and trying to heal my inner pain of 13 years of sexual abuse and loss, abandonment and betrayal I came across this book as a hard copy. I had spent years and huge sums of money trying to heal and years prior to self-medicating with alcohol and unhappy relationships books and modalities and more. This book was a turning point, a lifeboat and my saving grace. If you have any abuse from childhood and any type then this book will help you unravel that pain. I know how deep the pain is for many and how overlooked childhood trauma is in real time. Many think because your an adult you just let it go or hand it over to a higher power or God or something else. The truth in this book will solve so much for you I have no words to explain at the depths it has allowed me to stand up and speak my truth and be the truth. Therapy without psychoeducation does not serve those who have had childhood trauma. This book will allow you to MEET yourself fully and then you will be ready to meet your own needs and to know you are not alone and will help heal the worst of the worst.
