By Caroline Abbott, Author of A Journey through Emotional Abuse: from Bondage to Freedom

A Journey to Healing After Emotional Abuse is a holistic journey of healing of the mind, body and soul for women who have previously suffered emotional abuse. Coming from a Christian perspective, the book helps the reader set healthy boundaries with her former abuser, and learn to take care of herself. It helps her examine any abuse from her childhood, and, if necessary, assists her in seeking counseling. It gives her pointers for winning custody of her children in family court, then it gently walks with her as she strengthens her relationship with God, while helping her on her path to forgiveness. Finally, the book helps the reader explore whether she is ready for a new relationship and marriage. If not, it encourages her to strive for contentment as a single woman who brings glory to God. If so, it guides her through the steps to finding a godly man who will cherish her as a daughter of the King.

KatelinprofileA Journey to Healing After Emotional Abuse, by Caroline Abbott, is a natural transition from A Journey Through Emotional Abuse, with the focus on healing from domestic violence not only in the survivor’s heart, but also with her relationship with God. Step by step the survivor is taken through the healing process from dealing with the trauma, strengthening her relationship with God, helping children heal, and then moving forward into other relationships. This book is a must read for any woman who has dealt with domestic violence and should become a tool used to start the healing process. I would like to see this book in churches, counselors’ offices, and in the hands of survivors. I highly recommend A Journey to Healing After Emotional Abuse. – Katelin Maloney blogger and author of Drowning. Passionate about helping people, Katelin Maloney raises awareness to the issues of domestic violence through her writing and volunteer work.
