Healing honestly : the messy and magnificent path to overcoming self-blame and self-shame

Zipursky, Alisa (author.).

Summary: "Healing History is a candid, poignant, and often funny survivor-to-survivor guide to navigating the salty waters of untrue stories and victim-blaming narratives that you hear every day. Survivors of sex abuse are inundated with untrue stories of their abuse, the aftermath, and what their healing journey should look like. The truth is those stories are a load of crap. Healing Honestly is a survivor-to-survivor guide to breaking through the negative self-talk and debunking the myths that plague victims of sex abuse, such as: there is a "real" survivor out there, and we are not it; it happened so long ago that we should be over it by now; we are having too much sex because of our trauma and, also, we are having too little sex because of our trauma. With an approachable style that makes stigmatized topics not so scary, this book shows how trauma survivors will can learn to identify these untrue stories within themselves and find guidance on day-to-day struggles, such as "how to date" and "how to navigate flashbacks." Full of wit and humor, this book offers practical strategies for survivors of sex abuse to fight stigma and self-blame with radical honesty"--
