If a survivor of domestic violence and a trauma-informed therapist could speak to survivors of abuse, what wisdom would they provide? In this ground-breaking book Kendall Ann Combs, a survivor of domestic violence, and Dr. Amelia Kelley, an expert in psychology, seek to answer questions and provide resources for those trying to break the cycle of abuse.
Part memoir and part self-help, this book follows the progression of an abusive relationship from the courtship phase to recovering and thriving after the abusive relationship ends.
FORMS OF ABUSE are defined and clinical insight is provided into how these experiences shape survivors.
RESEARCH-BASED TECHNIQUES for dealing with the aftermath of abuse are given along with skills for well-being and thriving.
