Becoming Me Again: A Workbook for Sexually-Abused Kids and Teens

Sexual abuse of children is a much publicized phenomenon of our time. Not until the late 20th century did people acknowledge publicly the serious impact that child sexual abuse has on our children. This workbook is a must resource for parents, family agencies, and children. Dr. Sharon Ridella-Mehlos, author and therapist, uses this work with many of her patients. This work is not a lengthy scribe of theory; it is a resource that can be used on site at anytime. If you know of anyone who has experienced this challenge, Becoming Me Again: A Workbook for Sexually-Abused Kids and Teens is a must-use book for families and other therapists.
