*The Verbally Abusive Relationship

How to Recognize it and How to Respond

by Patricia Evans

Just because the abuse isn’t physical, doesn’t mean it isn’t abusive. In this book are answers to help recognize abuse when it happens, respond to abusers safely and appropriately, and most important, lead a healthier life. From subtle put-downs to full out tantrums of name-calling or threatening, the author outlines the levels of abuse. This book puts you on a path to recognizing and responding to verbal abuse, one crucial step at a time!

Critically acclaimed book on the history of trauma and PTSD. Treatment and stages of recovery for victims are explained, whether from military combat or from sexual, physical, or emotional abuse or assault.

The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma

Trauma is a fact of life. Veterans and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat; one in five Americans has been molested; one in four grew up with alcoholics; one in three couples have engaged in physical violence. This book details recent scientific advances to show how trauma literally reshapes both body and brain, compromising sufferers’ capacities for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust. Also explored are innovative treatments that offer new paths to recovery by activating the brain’s natural neuroplasticity. The Body Keeps the Score exposes the tremendous power of our relationships both to hurt and to heal—and offers new hope for reclaiming lives.

Trusting Again After Betrayal: Learning to Trust Yourself, God, and Others

Has the one you trusted betrayed you? Are you stunned, hurt, burning with pain? Not knowing which way is up or down? Betrayal doesn’t have to mean it’s the end – it could be a new beginning. This book will introduce you to 15 women who share their stories of hope and healing in their own words. You’ll meet wives who lost their husbands and others whose marriages were reconciled. You can go from the devastation of discovery (or disclosure) to the peace of God’s presence and know it is possible to trust again after betrayal.
