Product Description

From the Inside Flap

For those of us who are or have been emotionally abused, we know how the experience insidiously sabotages our self-esteem. We know how easy it can be to falter, to begin to feel the familiar self-doubt and fear. We need to be reminded that the abuse is not our fault. We need to find the motivation to trust our perceptions -- and find the courage to change our present reality.
ENCOURAGEMENTS FOR THE EMOTIONALL ABUSED WOMAN addresses these needs. Whether we are just beginning to recognize that we are in abusive relationships or whether we have made the decision to break free, this book is here, a consistent reminder of positive growth. Written as a companion to Beverly Engel's landmark THE EMOTIONALLY ABUSED WOMAN, this volume of quotes, insights, feelings, and suggestions contains passages to be read and reread, turned to as a trusted friend, to help us grow stronger with each passing day. Any time, day or night, it is ready, on any page, to help, to heal, and to replenish the soul.

Format: Paperback
I went looking for a simple book to read as an introduction into the process of healing from emotional abuse. I found this book and it changed my life. Filled with quotes, brief yet poignant advice and bold-faced affirmations, this book made so many things clear and helped me to sort out a lot of my confusion. I learned as much from this book as I gained comfort from it.
I have one recommendation to anyone who reads it: while you are making your way through the book make a note of the affirmations that really touch you. When you're done, go back and copy those affirmations on index cards and place them where you can read them each day. I copied at least twenty. My favorite one is "You deserve calmness and tranquility in your life. You've already been through enough storms."

No other book so clearly and succinctly describes emotional abuse and assists women with the steps towards recovery. The book includes short excerpts that can be used for learning and daily reflection. This book has helped me face and accept some harsh realities that are not addressed in other literature. Bev Engel guides the reader to decide whether to stay in or move on from abusive relationships. She goes further and teaches the reader to trust and love herself to prevent further abuse, as well as how to identify and create healthy respectful, loving relationships.

HASH(0xa2827084) out of 5 stars Exactly what every recovering woman needs to hear April 12 2005
By Laediebug - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Do you have one of those friends who is always able to tell you exactly what you need to hear when you go to her for help? This book is for those of us who don't.

Full of common sense, encouragement, and beautiful truth, each one-page entry is a perfect bite-sized dose of the advice our mothers never gave us. Each page starts with a relevant quote from diverse sources such as Dickensen, Shakespeare, Sartre, and Oprah. Then a few paragraphs of reassurace and information on all aspects emotional abuse recovery from recognizing abuse, leaving (or staying), to recovering and making sure you break the cycle of abuse.

The gentle "encouragements" style of this book is extremely helpful for those of us facing trauma so great that we are almost too frightened to face it. This book won't make you weed through seemingly endless, depressing, distressing chapters on disorders and case studies that don't seem to have anything to do with you.

This book should be in the library of every woman recovering from any kind of abuse. I even think it should be given out by therapists and domestic violence shelters!

HASH(0xa28274bc) out of 5 stars a must read for recovery March 16 2005
By Andrea Garcia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is fantastic for both the counselor and for the emotionally abused woman. It uses powerful quotes and encouragements that truly speak to the reader. Engel also includes a little push at the end of each page to encourage the reader to take care of herself. I highly, highly recommend it!

HASH(0xa282787c) out of 5 stars Honest,Painful, and Hopeful March 8 2006
By laurel casey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
No woman wants to need to read this book. However, those of us who have lived the abuse know the pain. We carry our abuse with us like an unlit torch thinking it will light the path before us. Only to find out it is the abuse that keeps us in the dark. This book is the true light; it is the words we need to hear echo in our heads; it is the hope that our lives in the end will mean something to ourselves and others. Both Encouragements and "The Emotionally Abused Woman" are a must read. It can make life lighter.

HASH(0xa2827960) out of 5 stars Ttherapeutic March 13 2006
By S. Sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a support group facilitator of a domestic violence group, I have found Encouragements for the Emotionaly Abused invaluable. Women in group and every woman who comes to the shelter program for help receives a copy of this book. It aids healing and validates everything someone feels when in an abusive relationship. I highly recomend this publication to anyone who has at any time in thier life experienced any form of abuse.
