I was hoping to gain further knowledge about childhood emotional neglect / attachment disorders and was surprised how heavily the book is based on incest case studies. Not my situation, but a great learning tool nonetheless. Highly recommend for anyone who has experienced incest. Susan Forward gives clear steps and hope to find your strength. Trigger warning: The stories are very intense; I recommend having some access to support if you don't yet have self-regulation, compassion skills.
