Restoring The Shattered Self

Restoring the Shattered Self

by Heather Davediuk Gingrich.

This is a book for certified counselors, the clergy and students of social work or women’s studies with a goal towards counseling and as she points out, those who have the courage and knowledge to counsel people who have been sexually abused in childhood, noting that this area of counseling is not for the faint of heart.  The author distinguishes between post-traumatic stress syndrome and complex traumatic stress syndrome, the latter specifically related to sexual assault in children and the effects of that abuse as the child grows into adulthood.
