In speaking about Healing from Incest, Susan J. Lewis, Ph.D., J.D., writes: ""Brave, profound, touching, healing. This well-written, honest book takes the reader inside the complexities of the therapeutic healing process from the patient and therapist's unique perspective. It is the story of hard work, hope, commitment and recovery!" Healing from Incest tells the journey of a victim-turned-survivor, working with her therapist to find healing. Readers are pulled into the therapeutic process as Henderson relates her conversations and feelings as a victim of child abuse and Emerton interprets those feelings and describes interventions. For those who recognize this as their own story, this frank and genuine narrative will be reassuring in its descriptions of one woman's journey toward hope and healing. About the front cover: kintsukuroi(n.) (v. phr.) "to repair with gold"; the art of repairing pottery with gold or silver lacquer and understanding that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken.

I extremely enjoyed this book both as a professional therapist and as a human being. I think this book is so helpful to me as a professional to be able to be the proverbial fly on the wall getting to see both the author and the therapist's perspective on the therapy process. I could not put this book down once I started it. I thank the author profusely for being able to help me improve as a therapist. Thank you!

This book needed to exist a lot sooner! Geri and Seanne create a riveting dialog between each other as Geri discusses the hardships she has endured, from her childhood into her adult life, and what she has had to do to reach the Light at the end of the Tunnel! Coupled with Seanne's Therapist and scientific approach allows the reader to really connect and get into Geri's mindset. The scenes and feelings presented are not for everyone but I definitely encourage anyone who has had this happen to them to read this! You don't feel as alone in the world with it and it is rather therapeutic. I have had my own "issues" with Incest but have had "come to terms" with it per say. It was absolutely horrible before that though and I truly wish I had this book to read in those dark times. So as I previously stated, this needed to exist sooner!

I received this book through the Early Reviewers program in exchange for an honest review. I will admit, it has taken more longer to finish reading it than I would have thought. As a survivor of incest, I was only able to make it through the book bit by bit. The reason for this is because I wanted to process each of the chapters on their own before moving to the next one. While my experience was not to the level of hers, some of the topics she discussed with her therapist were similar with those I had gone through. The book is general enough to apply to a variety of survivors while also specifically addressing what Geri had gone through. The advice, and view of her journey I found helpful. There were some sections that did not sit well with me and seemed judgemental, however that may just be due to my own personal journey. Having the viewpoints bounce back and forth was distracting at first, but after a few pages I was able to work the change in perspective into almost a conversation I was listening to. I would recommend this book to others with the only warning (which should be obvious) that there will be sections/descriptions that are triggers.

Well, I have to be honest. I did not like this book. And, I hasten to say, it had nothing to do with Henderson's story, or with her writing. It was the co-authorship that troubled me, from both a content and process point of view. I found the italicized comments from Emerton, the therapist, intrusive, irritating, even somewhat patronizing. Henderson herself is quite insightful, and Emerton rarely added anything to the story. And she (Emerton) completely lost my faith in her psychological acumen when she conflated the subconscious and the unconscious, egregiously backing up this error by citing Carl Jung, who wrote so extensively on the collective unconscious and who must be rolling in his grave to hear he referred to the subconscious as the unconscious (p. 94). I wish Henderson had been able to trust her own wisdom enough to let the book stand on its own, with just her words. That's my content comment. As for the process, despite the italicized discussion of the professional issues involved in a therapist collaborating with a former patient, I found the relationship unsettling. Four stars for Henderson; half or one star for Emerton.
