Healing the Scars of Childhood Abuse
Moving Beyond the Past Into a Healthy Future
by Dr. Gregory L. Jantz with Ann McMurray
Something dreadful happened on the way to adulthood for far too many children. Perhaps you’re one of them. Perhaps the childhood you so desperately wanted didn’t happen for you. Instead, your childhood wasn’t something you dreamed about; your childhood was a nightmare you survived. And for some of you, just barely.
Childhood is supposed to be a loving, nurturing, and empowering time for children to be strengthened and supported into adulthood. When childhood abuse enters into that picture, that reality becomes torn and tattered. How do you find a way to pick up those fragments of your life and move forward?
Dr. Gregory Jantz and Ann Murray provide the compassion and insight that so many adults need to help understand the “why” of their childhood abuse. Then, they provide the hope, tools and guidance to help them in their recovery to a more happy, balanced and prosperous future.
