If a part of your life seems to make no sense, yet you can’t put the puzzle together because some of the pieces are missing, this book is for you. If you suspect that the treatment you received as a child has in some way impaired your judgment as an adult, if your current life seems to lack peace, this book is for you. This book is also for today’s children with the hope that their parents will recognize any abusive childhood treatment in their own past and finally stop the intergenerational cycle of abuse.

Christina Crawford

Christina Crawford’s devastating memoir, Mommie Dearest (over 5,000,000 copies sold), first as a book and later as a Hollywood film, made the American public aware of violence in the family. In No Safe Place she draws further on her personal story, adding sociological research for addictive behavior, depression, sleep disorders, chronic illness, suicide, delinquency, homelessness, and apparently “mindless” violent crime. A call to action—this impassioned book offers the hope that in facing the truth about our families we can save our society and ourselves.

“If we could stop the violence in our homes, we could reduce the diagnostic disorders to a pamphlet and empty three-fourths of our prisons….This book embodies Ms. Crawford’s sharp insight into the roots of violence and how to stop it.” – from the foreword by John Bradshaw, author of Healing the Shame that Binds You and Homecoming

”…for those concerned with the future of the family in our culture, this book is a must read.” – Justice Mark Kennedy, Supreme Court of Alabama

Additional DescriptionMore Details

In this highly readable and practical book, Stephanie Mines shows how persons traumatized by sexual abuse can be healed through the sensitive application of “Expressive Therapy” (the therapeutic use of art-making in all its forms) and by treating trauma as a “sacred wound” on the model of the shaman?s initiatic wounding. The book includes five engaging case-histories of women and men who have worked in this way with the debilitating experiences of substance abuse, overwhelming shame and extraordinary emotional repression and have reclaimed their individuality and force in the world. There is also an insightful account of sexual abuse in an ashram and a chapter on treating sexual abuse in the family. This book offers vital and useful self-help tools for survivors and their families. It also gives clinicians creative new strategies for their clients who have been traumatized.
