This coloring book was conceived to bring healing to anyone who was abused as a child. Each survivor possesses infinite resources of intelligence, creativity, sensitivity, and wisdom with which to heal. The messages and images in this book were developed to tap into these inner resources. Dr. Lacter has been observing "what works" to heal child abuse trauma for 35 years. This book shares these approaches in a fun, hope-giving medium- a coloring book. As the reader applies color to the images and lingers on their meaning, the value within the images can be gradually internalized to help each survivor pave a personal path for healing. The book is printed on heavy weight paper suitable for most art media. 17 chapters: Safety, Staying Grounded, Self-Soothing, Joy and Play, Hope, Reclaiming My Core, Reclaiming My Feelings, Reclaiming My Body, Nurturing My Spirituality, Self-Love, Love, The Beauty All Around Us, Strength and Determination, Embracing All Parts of Myself, Healing Abused Parts of Myself, Separating from My Abusers and Their Abuse, and Acceptance. Jean Maria Arrigo, Ph.D., writes: What is the source of this magical book of creative healing practices? In these pages, Dr. Lacter demonstrates a fine attunement to the horrors of those who were hurt, exploited, and betrayed as children. In each chapter, the hard-realist text grapples with the conundrums of the afflicted, then yields to calm pictorial resolutions to abuse, in which the colorer of the coloring book can join. Pass the paints and crayons! Dr. Arrigo is recipient of the 2015 Scientific Freedom and Responsibility Award of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2013 American Psychological Foundation Lynn Stuart Weiss Lecture - Psychology as a Means of Attaining Peace through World Law, 2009 Anthony J.
