Emotional, physical and sexual abuse in childhood can result in a range of problems and lead to long-term difficulties that make life a struggle.

With this in mind, clinical psychologist Dr Helen Kennerley has devised this highly acclaimed self-help programme based on the principles of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to help you to understand the links between your past trauma and any present difficulties.

It offers you the means to gain control of your life and your feelings, enabling you to deal with any intrusive memories and mood swings, and develop healthy, better relationships in adulthood. Anyone who has endured childhood abuse and continues to battle with its aftermath will find this book supportive and liberating. The book gives you:
- An understanding of the range of problems childhood abuse can create
- Advice on how to build healthy relationships in adulthood
- A structured, step-by-step self-help guide

OVERCOMING self-help guides use clinically proven techniques to treat long-standing and disabling conditions, both psychological and physical. Many guides in the Overcoming series are recommended under the Reading Well scheme.
