Publisher's Description

"Anyone who had a troubled childhood ought to read this book."—Anne H. Cohn, D.P.H., Executive Director, National Committee for Prevention of Child Abuse

Do you have trouble finding friends, lovers, acquaintances?
Once you find them, do they dump on you, take advantage of you, or leave?
Are you in a relationship you know isn't good for you?
Are you still trying to figure out what you want to do when you grow up?
Are you drinking too much, eating too much or trying to numb your pain with drugs of any kind?

These are just a few of the problems abused children experience when they become adults.

You may not realize you were abused. You may think your parents didn't mean it, didn't know better, or that others had it much worse. You may not even have made the connection between the past and your current problems.

Outgrowing the Pain is an important book for any adult who was abused or neglected in childhood. It's an important book for professionals who help others. It's a book of questions that can pinpoint and illuminate destructive patterns. The answers you discover can lead to a life filled with new insight, hope, and love.

"The best book available to help survivors cope and understand."—Dan Sexton, Director, Childhelp's National Abuse Hotline

"An invaluable aid for adult survivors of child abuse."—Suzanne M. Sgroi, M.D., Executive Director, New England Clinical Associates
