I'm the author of 2 books on recovering from incest & childhood sexual abuse:"REPAIR Your Life" and "REPAIR For Kids". Amazon.com has 5 star reviews on them. Just type in the name of the book. Amazon is selling the REPAIR Your Life book for around $13. Two more new books will be coming out before the end of the year: "REPAIR For Toddlers" and "It's Your Choice! Decisions that will change Your Life". I know my subject well for when I was thirteen my father raped me as I lay sleeping with my rosary in my hands. My mother found out and decided to blame me and had my father beat me with a belt for what he'd done. The abuse ending when I ran away from home when I was 18. I spent the next two decades going from one abuser to another until I was in my forties and began my own recovery program. After five long and anguishing years I went from being suicidal, filled with despair, married to my third abuser and living part time in a women's shelter to being the happiest person I know. Every thing I learned and all that I did was woven into the REPAIR program. REPAIR is an acronym for the stages to the program. R is for Recognition (where you validate the truth of what happened) E is for Entry (where you decide what kind of program you want) P is for Processing (where you learn exercises, tools and techniques that enable you to become healthy), A is for Awareness (The coming together of reality as you gather the pieces of the broken puzzle your life has become, I is for Insight (Seeing the complete picture) R is for Rhythm (developing the natural rhythm you had before the abuse). I am also the founder of a rapidly growing movement for recovery from incest and childhood sexual abuse. We currently have 40 chapters in five countries. Our website is www.thelamplighters.org. If you know anyone who would like to start a chapter please have them email me at margie@thelamplighters.org. It's so easy and costs nothing. I can email them a Lamplighter Movement Facilitator Guide
