Are you ready to finally recover your peace of mind?
We are living in a time where betrayal abounds. Tragically, most of know or know of someone who has been scarred by the betrayal bandit. In whatever form it takes (financial, political, personal, social, legal, environmental, cultural, etc.), no one is immune from the infectious waves of betrayal moving through our society. Breaking Through Betrayal: And Recovering the Peace Within is for any individual who has experienced or is experiencing betrayal, who carries the wounds or scars of betrayal injury, and who is struggling to break through its bonds. Betrayal has known us far longer than we have known it; it is time to change that. Readers of this book will be challenged to:
Explore the different kinds of betrayal while connecting with the experiences of others.
Unravel the emotions and behaviors that accompany betrayal injury and explore the factors which contribute to the intensity and duration of symptoms.
Empower yourself by embracing an interactive healing process tailored specifically for recovery from betrayal injury.
Revive and restore your mind, body, and spirit through a series of activities, exercises, and self-assessments which provide tools for renewal, as well as working through relapse or re-injury.
Reclaim your rightful sense of self.
Therapists Praise Breaking Through Betrayal
"Useful for anyone caught in self-blame, shame or repeated victimization. Though almost the antithesis of my inner-transformation approach, this empowering 'in-control' approach can help readers take charge, assess injury, gauge healing and find excellent strategies to protect themselves from future trauma when relating to one's betrayer."
--Beth Hedva, Ph.D. author of award-winning Betrayal, Trust and Forgiveness
"This volume deals with the subject of betrayal, and is appropriate as a self-help aid for clients. It also contains useful suggestions for therapists dealing with those who have experienced betrayal of trust of several kinds: interpersonal, familial, sexual, and financial. The steps in the healing process are well outlined and make clear that relapse is to be expected. Overlap with loss and the grief process is also well discussed."
--Lucy R. Ferguson, Ph.D., Member, AFTNC
Faculty Member and Dean Emerita, CSPP, Alliant University
