The Courage to Heal: A Guide for Women Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse, 20th Anniversary Edition, Ellen Bass & Laura Davis (2008)

The Courage to Heal was one of the first books written for survivors to help them heal from child sexual abuse. It became a bestseller and has probably helped millions of survivors. Not surprisingly, some survivors report that their abusers programmed them against obtaining the book or to be negatively affected by reading it. I honor these reports and that it may not be in the best interest of some survivors to read this book.  -Ellen Lacter
