Synopsis: A psychotherapist offers sufferers of childhood abuse the key to total psychological recovery, presenting in-depth interviews with twenty former victims and examining issues of self-image, body image, intimacy, work, and spirituality. Reprint. NYT.

From Library Journal: Sanford presents a perceptive and empathic examination of why and how victims of abuse either take the downward path to violence and destruction or become responsible citizens, good friends, and reasonable people. This nonempirical, descriptive study of 20 survivors of childhood abuse details how childhoods dominated by physical, mental, or sexual abuse can be transformed. The book belies the idea that survivors of childhood abuse are doomed to repeat the pattern of abuse. The emphasis is on overcoming, attaining understanding, and gaining positive feelings about oneself. Sanford notes that most studies to date have concentrated on survivors who came to the attention of researchers by way of the criminal justice, mental health, substance dependence, or social service agencies. A fascinating and positive book that shows how an abusive childhood can be transformed.
