Healing the Ravaged Soul
Tending the Spiritual Wounds of Child Sexual Abuse
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Healing the Ravaged Soul is a helpful and informative manual for navigating the many facets of recovery from sexual abuse. The book is strengthened by weaving together spiritual and emotional dimensions that can come forth following childhood abuse. The 'Healing Practices' throughout each chapter offer practical ways to integrate information with personal experience. Although I have received individual counseling for almost two decades, I appreciated new insights and perspectives about myself as a result of reading the book. Sue offers a comprehensive and thorough examination of this difficult topic."
--Jacquie Reed, abuse survivor
"With sensitivity, compassion, and understanding, the author shines a light of hope for those who as children have suffered the worst violations of body, mind, and spirit. She is not afraid to tackle the big theological questions and does so with honesty, humility, and insight. Survivors and those who accompany them will find in these pages refreshing images and rituals for healing and the restoration of wholeness."
--Suzanne Seaton, MSW, Spiritual Director
