By SOP newswire2


Loving Healing Press (Michigan), September 28, 2012 "Victims of childhood abuse must understand exactly what the abuse did to them, or else they cannot get free. Heyward B. Ewart`s new book Soul Rape: Recovering Personhood After Abuse (ISBN-13: 978-1615991686, Loving Healing Press, September 2012) provides an effective 7-step program for use by victims, their therapists, and for group work.

If you were abused or neglected as a child, chances are that the impact of the abuse haunts you throughout, whether you are a man, a woman, or a teen. But not anymore, as Soul Rape: Recovering Personhood After Abuse provides clear understanding into how abuse works its way through the soul. The author, a qualified and experienced therapist and a spiritual guide, explains the core nature of abuse, what helps it persist, and how to find the way out by counting on personal strength, confidence, and faith.  

  • In this book, survivors and professionals will discover:
  • How celebrities become addicts
  • Why twelve-step programs don`t work and can be extremely harmful
  • What a faith-based 7-step program for abuse recovery can do for you
  • How addressing abuse solves cycle of addiction
  •  Why mental illness is a reaction to somebody else`s craziness
  • How group work can transform victims into survivors
  • Why `bootleg` churches are starving souls and endangering America


  • A Test to Find DANGEROUS STUDENTS before it`s too late

Acknowledging its excellence, Soul Rape has been endorsed with both Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur by the Roman Catholic Church for its faith-based recovery method.

Therapists` acclaim for Soul Rape
