    One thought on “Healing the Scars of Emotional Abuse”

    1. This, like many books out there has a good definition and examples of emotional abuse. I didn't find the suggestions for healing particularly helpful.I was turned off by the religious aspects of the book but found it easy to skim over those sections.

    2. Personal Response: The book,Healing the Scars of Emotional Abuse , was a very good book. I rated this book four out of five stars because it had a lot of personal experiences in it. It was very touching and very relatable in my life. I read this book for one of my classes and I am glad that I did. It was a very eye opening book, and I even wrote a speech on it. Plot: The book,Healing the Scars of Emotional Abuse , is about emotional abuse; how to notice it, how to stop it, and how to heal from i [...]

    3. This book was extremely helpful for me. It has affirmations, questionaires, and other activites to help with your recovery. This is a very good read and would recommeded for anyone who has ever been through any kind of abuse

    4. I am so glad that this was a purchase instead of a library book for me. I will read it and work the exercises in it often. When it is time to move beyond the "Did that really happen?" shock in your mind, this book can help you start to identify and heal the lingering hurt.

    5. I have now had the opportunity to read a few books by Dr. Jantz and I have found his works to be very inspirational and healing. I am not a victim of childhood abuse, having had a very happy, healthy, fulfilling childhood. But being a foster parent, I often have children in my home who have suffered a lot from abuse, neglect, and so on. I wanted to know the best way, the Godly way, to help these precious children heal from the wounds they don't deserve and didn't ask for.I feel that once again, [...]

    6. This book has a Bible based, loving theme throughout that was encouraging and hopeful. It provides practical strategies and steps to take in healing from the trauma of abuse in a more positive light than any of the other abuse recovery books I've read thus far. Other books have left me feeling hopeless, because there are situations when one cannot just walk away from a family member who is emotionally abusive. This author walks you through the process of learning to love yourself; forgive yourse [...]

    7. I found this book very helpful to understand the many aspects of emotional abuse. I have seen the devastation on friends and family that can affect generations when it is ignored. Too often we settle for a statement something like this, "That's just the way my (fill in friend or loved one's name) is. He/she is never going to change. I'm cool with the way they treat me (or his/her family or coworkers. I have just learned to live with it and dodge the (fill in the method of abuse here - angry word [...]

    8. One of the most common secrets that are held within many households is the issue of emotional abuse. The mere mention of it is hushed away or laughed at nervously by family members in hopes that another subject will be brought up. Emotional abuse is a generational behavior that is learned and passed down from mother to daughter and from father to son. It is often unintended or sometimes viciously practiced. This book is a wonderful tool that describes the various types of characteristics of emot [...]

    9. I read this book to try to see things that I may be blind to being that I am living my life and do not have complete perspective to the full truth and consequence of all of my actions and my life.Further I wanted to stop hurting people in the way I have and need external help to know what I have done that hurts others so that I can actively try to change what I have done. I also wanted to be able to be able to carry out my work on this planet more effectively and understanding others and myself [...]

    10. This is one of the best books I have read regarding recovery from emotional abuse. Some people commented that they did not like the Christian aspect of the book, but I found that the spiritual component of the book was a very important part of healing. I like the authors approach to whole person health. We are creatures of body, mind, and spirit. I enjoyed this book so much that I am currently reading his book on overcoming anxiety and worry.

    11. Wow this has been such a crucial and eye opening book to my healing process from emotional and verbal abuse that is still so hard to accept or come to terms with but this spoke so much truth and insight and I felt finally understood for all the fears and anxiety and low self esteem (tho it doesn't seem like it but all the stuff that goes inside my mind) and all the feelings of inferiority and feeling unsafe wherever I am was that someone would attack me All realizing it was due to my childhood u [...]

    12. The author is a christian and he talks to you from the pages of the book as if you were a christian too, or at least a creationist, but you may be not. I'd recommend to look at some other books on emotional abuse, like: Emotional Blackmail: When the People in Your Life Use Fear, Obligation, and Guilt to Manipulate YouWhy does he do that? Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men.To deal with low self-esteem - as a consequence of emotional abuse or not - look at the work of Dr. Burns "Feeling [...]

    13. This book coincides with what has been pointed out and taught by my Christian counselor. While the book is a great resource I have found that I am better suited to learning the points as they have been presented to me in counseling. So for me counseling with this book as a resource is great, but just the book would not provide the results needed for me to change and grow. I am not saying the questions and surveys in the book are not useful, I'm saying that I need a counselor to have me answer th [...]

    14. Extremely helpful book given to me by a cherished mentor led to she & I co-leading two support (non-professional) groups for women over the next 4 years hugely therapeutic and SPOT ON truthful. Would recommend it to everyone and anyone! Will forever be grateful to my precious mentor & friend!

    15. When choosing to read this book it was without realizing all the Christian rhetoric. I found this disconcerting. That aside, the book was full of much helpful information about emotional abuse. It also provided thought provoking exercises on the topic.

    16. This book was awesome. for those who are trying to find Healing. It also deals with forgivenessd preventing repeated history
