"I am very enthusiastic about this book, its treatment orientation, and its emphasis on healing tasks undertaken in a graduated sequence. It makes a substantial contribution to the clinical strategies currently available for the treatment of adult survivors of childhood abuse, and as such, is a resource for therapists struggling with treatment issues generated by the repressed memory/delayed memory controversy." - Christine A. Courtois, Ph.D., Director of Clinical Training, Psychiatric Institute of Washington "Therapists, adult survivors, counselors, ministers, and all concerned with the long-term effects of childhood sexual abuse should read this book. A fresh new approach that integrates recent developments in the field of post-traumatic stress disorder." - John P. Wilson. Ph.D., Director, Center for Stress and Trauma, Cleveland "What a fine work this is! Kepner, a virtuoso Gestalt therapist, provides a powerful, practical framework for survivors of abuse and their therapists that is thorough, thoughtful, clear, comprehensive, humane, and impeccably intelligent. A must for any clinician's library, and empowering reading for survivors in need of a solid, intellectual grasp on their experience." - Belleruth Naparstek, LISW, author, Staying Well with Guided Imagery "Kepner provides a compassionate, knowledgeable, and careful analysis of how to take a Gestalt approach when working with survivors of child sexual abuse. I highly recommend this book." - Catherine Classen, Ph.D., Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford
