Come to terms with your past while moving powerfully into the future The Courage to Heal is an inspiring, comprehensive guide that offers hope and a map of the healing journey to every woman who was sexually abused as a child--and to those who care about her. Although the effects of child sexual abuse are long-term and severe, healing is possible. Weaving together personal experience with professional knowledge, the authors provide clear explanations, practical suggestions, and support throughout the healing process. Readers will feel recognized and encouraged by hundreds of moving first-person stories drawn from interviews and the authors' extensive work with survivors, both nationally and internationally. This completely revised and updated 20th anniversary edition continues to provide the compassionate wisdom the book has been famous for, as well as many new features: Contemporary research on trauma and the brain An overview of powerful new healing tools such as imagery, meditation, and body-centered practices Additional stories that reflect an even greater diversity of survivor experiences The reassuring accounts of survivors who have been healing for more than twenty years The most comprehensive, up-to-date resource guide in the field Insights from the authors' decades of experience Cherished by survivors, and recommended by therapists and institutions everywhere, The Courage to Heal has often been called the bible of healing from child sexual abuse. This new edition will continue to serve as the healing beacon it has always been.… (més)

    Self-Help That Works: Resources to Improve Emotional Health and Strengthen Relationships de John C. Norcross (PlaidStallion)
    PlaidStallion: From the book:

    Although a visible and bestselling book on sexual abuse, The Courage to Heal is not without its significant cautions. Its laundry list of diagnostic questions is not supported by research and, according to critics, exaggerates the prevalence. The book’s authors were also drawn into the repressed-versus false- memory storm. The authors contend that women who strongly sense that they were sexually abused but do not have specific memories of it were probably abused. While this position fosters an acceptance toward women whose abuse may have been denied by others, it simultaneously may generate or perpetuate false “memories” of abuse that never occurred. Critics contend that specific memories of early childhood abuse are notoriously unreliable and that the authors’ encouraging language can create false memories and thus false accusations against innocent family members. In that respect, the book has been involved in lawsuits and implicated in false memories.

    The Courage to Heal is probably the most controversial and polarizing selfhelp book among psychologists in this entire volume. We have received congratulations from some colleagues for featuring this empowering book and for telling the awful truth about sexual abuse, as well as condemnation from other colleagues for even listing a book that has been identified as a probable source of false memories and false accusations. We have faithfully reported that mental health professionals evaluated The Courage to Heal as the top-rated book on abuse in our national studies, but immediately note that those ratings occurred in the 1990s, before the false memory controversy and other professional developments.

    In the end, we decided to respect both the original ratings and the ensuing storm: we retain the listing, place it under the singular heading of “An Embattled Book,” present both sides of that battle, detail its controversy, and, given the necessary cautions, remove it from the Recommendation list. Our position will probably not satisfy either side of the debate, but we believe it best reflects the emerging consensus and best serves the interests of clinicians and consumers alike.

Wege zur Selbstheilung für sexuell mißbrauchte Frauen
  Buecherei.das-Sarah | Nov 24, 2014 |
This was a landmark book when it first came out. Nothing like this had ever been so accessible to average women. However, with the passage of time, we know much more about childhood sexual abuse, and some of the things in this book are not only incorrect, they are downright destructive. While this book did a great service in bringing to light the issue of childhood sexual abuse when, until then, it had been swept under the rug, I cannot recommend it anymore. I see that further editions have come out since the original. I don't know what may have been changed in these subsequent editions, but the first edition I cannot recommend. ( )

professional book. I used to loan it to patients

Although neither Ellen Bass nor Laura Davis are trained mental health professionals, they developed what is widely considered the "Bible" for adult women who have experienced sexual abuse during childhood. The book offers stories from other "survivors," helpful writing exercises, advice for partners of survivors, and much more.

The Courage to Heal is the most harmful work of slander, ignorance, and lies since The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and The Malleus Maleficarum. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion spread lies about Jews, saying that they ate Christian children and committed other atrocities, and it became the basis for hundreds of years of pogroms. The Malleus Maleficarum spread fear of witches, saying that they “copulate with Devils” and “Offer New-born Children of Devils,” and it became the basis for hundreds of years of witch hunts.

Proving that those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it, The Courage to Heal follows in the footsteps of these sordid works of suspicion, conspiracy, and paranoia by teaching women to blame all problems on repressed memories of abuse, even if a woman has no memory of ever being abused by anyone, and even though there is no evidence that repressed memories exist! Like the works that preceded it, The Courage to Heal has triggered an epidemic of false accusations and shattered lives, this time aimed at mothers, fathers, brothers, uncles, and grandparents instead of Jews or “witches.”

Cleverly written, The Courage to Heal appears at first glance to be a compassionate work dedicated to easing the suffering of victims of abuse. And the authors no doubt thought they were doing a public service by writing it, just as the authors of the Malleus Maleficarum thought they were doing a public service by warning the public about the danger posed by witches. Only a comparison of the claims made and the techniques recommended in The Courage to Heal against principles of medical ethics, the Bill of Rights, and our current scientific understanding about the functioning of human memory reveals The Courage to Heal to be the catastrophe of ignorance, irresponsibility, and injustice that it is.

The Courage to Heal is grounded in total ignorance of research findings about the functioning of human memory. That should be no surprise. Its authors by their own admission have no training, education, or license to diagnose or treat mental illnesses. But as the old saying goes, “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread,” and the authors of The Courage to Heal confidently promote their book as a tool for recovering from repressed memories of abuse that must have occurred—even if there is no evidence and a woman has no recollection of ever being abused. Would you allow an amateur with no medical training to operate on your heart? Of course not! Why, then, would any sensible person allow two amateurs to operate on her mind? The dangers are just as great.
