Synopsis: FROM THE INTRODUCTION

"The young woman had tears in her eyes when I took my seat next to her on the airliner bound for Little Rock. She was on her way to college, 2000 miles away, and distraught: 'I don't know if I'll be able to stand it.' At that moment, I was thinking of my own distress: I don't think I'll be able to stand it either. I was on my way to visit my father, who was in the latter stages of his struggle with cancer. I'm a therapist. I know how to handle these things, I thought to myself. Knowing that others live through these events and survive did absolutely nothing to comfort me or quiet my pain. I wondered, Will I make it? What should I do?

"The very first step to take in emotional healing is to acknowledge that, This is human stuff... I sure don't have to like it, but it's real, it's normal and it matters. You are not alone in your pain.

"In this book, we'll take a brief look at the lives of four people -- Survivors -- who've gone through some very rough experiences:

  • Married for nine years now, Sharon is realizing that she's still alone... she's not happy... there's no end in sight. Lately she's gained weight, sleeps a lot and feels empty.
  • Dale's wife Joyce died three months ago in an automobile accident. They'd been married twenty-three years. She was my whole life, he exclaims. Every day he cries.
  • At thirty-six, Katherine began to recall episodes of abuse and sexual molestation when she was 6 or 7 years old. She is overwhelmed with painful memories.
  • The doctors told Gary they got all the cancer, but it could recur. Everyone says, 'You're lucky... You should be thankful.' Gary doesn't feel thankful. He's consumed by fear.

"The life experiences of Sharon, Dale, Katherine and Gary are quite different, yet each of them is plagued by significant emotional despair. These are not cases of mental illness, but examples of ordinary human beings living through painful times. Despite their differences, these four people fortunately all share one vitally important human quality: an inherent capacity to heal from deep emotional wounds. They are Survivors." How about you?

From the Back Cover: The very first stop to take in emotional healing is to become aware of and to acknowledge that, "This is human stuff... I sure don't have to like it, but it's real, it's normal, and it matters."

You are not alone in your pain. This book looks at the lives of four people -- Survivors -- who've gone through some rough experiences and are plagued by significant emotional despair. They can't just ignore it -- their feelings are dominating their lives. These are not cases of mental illness, but examples of ordinary human beings living through painful times, who learn the strategies for tapping into the inherent capacity to heal from deep emotional wounds.

"Highly recommended!"
--Michael J. Mahoney, Ph.D.

"Preston's warm and unpretentious style and use of compelling, real examples result in an interesting and useful book... will either help people to help themselves, or learn that they might benefit from professional help."
--Cliff Straehley, M.D., Psychiatrist
Author: EXPANDING YOUR ABILITY TO LOVE YOURSELF

"Preston's book is designed to take the stigma and shame out of 'emotional problems'... he has a realistic approach that acknowledges limitations while recognizing strengths. At the heart of his work is a focus on the ability to develop compassion for one's self."
--NAPRA REVIEW
