A Book for Incest Survivors
THE SINGING BIRD WILL COME is a helpful, easy-to-read tool that can assist people in healing from abuse. Issues such as claiming our space, honestly telling ourselves and others what we need, letting go of control and becoming appropriately vulnerable, being comfortable with our body, are addressed in a clear and straightforward way. -- Melody Beattie
This companion guide for survivors of childhood sexual trauma focuses on changing one's future through small changes in the present. Each chapter encourages the reader on new behavioral options that are ranked by level of courage.
I found this book very comforting, one I can go back to again and again when I am feeling down and alone. Thanks, Dionne, for helping the singing bird to come. Patricia Erickson, The Banner Project Newsletter
