From the Publisher:

"Forbidden Grief" is a compelling review of Dr. Theresa Burke's experience in counseling hundreds of women for abortion-related emotional difficulties. Dr. Burke exposes the obstacles in the way of post-abortion healing, reviews the full range and depth of post-abortion adjustment problems, and illustrates how we can create a more understanding and healing society where women will no longer be required to hide their pain.

From the Inside Flap:

Abortion causes conflict. It fragments political parties, churches, schools, and neighborhoods. It divides families. Husband against wife. Mother against daughter. Sister against sister.

These conflicts reflect the discord that also occurs within individuals. After abortion, many women face a daily internal battle between condemning and defending themselves.

Psychotherapist Theresa Burke, PhD, has specialized in treating women struggling with post-abortion issues through individual counseling and group therapy sessions since 1986. Many of the women she treated had been rebuffed by other therapists who would not believe their abortions had caused such trauma. Others came to her because their family and friends refused to acknowledge the reality of their grief.

Drawing on the experience and insights of hundreds of her clients, Dr. Burke shows how repressed feelings may be acted out through self-destructive behavior, broken relationships, obsessions, eating disorders, parenting difficulties, and other emotional or behavioral problems.

"Forbidden Grief" also explains how to help loved ones, or yourself, simply by better understanding the nature and origin of unresolved abortion issues--and what steps will help you find healing.
