9780921980025: Out of Incest & Abuse, A Book of Hope

Out of Incest & Abuse, A Book of Hope is a walk through the wilderness of childhood abuse, and the opening of the doors to hope and healing. It is the story of one of seventy million women and forty million men in North America who have lived with labels such as: 'psychotic', 'mentally ill', 'suicial tendencies'. It is the breaking down of walls of silence and exploring the roots of the behaviors that are shared by abuse survivors everywhere.

About the Author:

Diane Esther has lived through and conquered the hopelessness that millions of abused children face daily. A frequent guest lecturer in universities, colleges and high schools, she conducts workshops and training sessions for social workers, teachers, psychiatric practitioners, sexual assault centers, therapists and and their clients - those adults whose childhoods were marred by abuse and neglect. She writes an interactive weekly newspaper column entitled "Seaking of Abuse...". Ms. Esther lives on beautiful Vancouver Island with her son Mark, and their sheep, dogs, goats and deer.

Review:

"Diane's compassionate and haunting pieces were awarded a standing ovation at our International Conference on Child Abuse, by an audience of over 500 people who work daily with children who are victims of assaults. Her book helped participants keep in touch with the child who is hurting." -- Rix Rogers, Chief Executive Officer, Institute for the Prevention of Child Abuse

"If it weren't for Diane, her caring and her book, I might not be a survivor today. I saw me in her book and I thank her from the bottom of my heart." -- Incest Survivor

"You speak in pictures. Reading your book was like talking to me. It is a balm on my soul." -- 50 year old survivor of childhood abuse
