"Whenever I sink back into a depression based on a flashback to my predator, I pull out my workbook. I don't need a specific chapter nor do I use one over and over, I pick a random spot and read enough to put my mind at ease. I always walk away with the pain gone."
--Survivor of clergy sexual abuse, from California
