The writer was encouraged to write this book because of thousands of e-mail responses to the articles on his website that repeatedly expressed gratitude for the helpfulness of his work. An often echoed comment sounded like this: At last someone gets it. I can see now that I am not bad, defective or crazy...or alone! The causes of Cptsd range from severe neglect to monstrous abuse. Many survivors grow up in houses that are not homes - in families that are as loveless as orphanages and sometimes as dangerous. If you felt unwanted, unliked, rejected, hated and/or despised for a lengthy portion of your childhood, trauma may be deeply engrained in your mind, soul and body. This book is a practical, user-friendly self-help guide to recovering from the lingering effects of childhood trauma, and to achieving a rich and fulfilling life. It is copiously illustrated with examples of his own and his clients' journeys of recovering.
This book is also for those who do not have Cptsd but want to understand and help a loved one who does. This book also contains an overview of the tasks of recovering and a great many practical tools and techniques for recovering from childhood trauma. It extensively elaborates on all the recovery concepts explained on the writer's website, and many more. It is oriented toward the layperson. As such, much of the psychological jargon and dense concentration of concepts in the website articles has been replaced with expanded and easier to follow explanations.

Sometimes you can have all the pieces of a puzzle and still not have a clear picture of what's going on.
My daughter and I read this book together. It doesn't replace therapy but it can be very helpful in putting things in their right slots for analysis or in preparation for those really hard conversations you sometimes have to have.
iIt can help just to know why you're feeling the way you do, why you do the things you do, and that no matter how late in the day, you can still win, you can still have your best days ahead.
It's in really good condition too.
