When A Woman You Love Was Abused

 

 

About the Book:
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports that 80 percent of childhood abuse victims later suffer from at least one abuse-induced psychological disorder. It’s proven that the effects of childhood abuse follow women into adulthood. Yet few men are prepared to deal with those effects, even when their own wife is the one who is suffering. And their wife’s suffering becomes their own suffering as their needs aren’t being met by a wife who is powerless to control her inner turmoil.

Author, pastor, and survivor Dawn Scott Jones candidly shares her own abuse experience to help husbands understand the varied emotions, fears, distorted thoughts, and triggers that hold their wives captive. In practical and accessible language, Jones explains the stages of the healing journey (processing denial, asking for help, grieving, expressing anger, learning to forgive, and finding resolution). Building on that knowledge, Jones then moves to an honest discussion of what husbands can do to help. Whether it’s creating a healing environment, understanding the need for control, building trust, or even just praying for healing, a husband plays an active role in helping his wife survive and thrive despite her past abuse.
Offering hope for a healthy marriage relationship, When a Woman You Love Was Abused answers the questions men have and offers the advice they need to help their wives finally find peace.
MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
This is a book written by someone who knows. And Dawn Scott Jones writes this book to husbands of women who have been sexually abused, teaching them how to cope, deal with situations, and learn what an abusive woman is like. With the help of this book, husband and wives can work through the difficult situations dealing wtih abusive behavior at early ages in womens lives. I am blessed that I never had to deal with such as this, but I do appreciate people like this author that is willing to tell her story in order to help others. What a blessing that God is using Ms. Jones in mighty ways to help women of all ages and their husbands.
What a wonderful book for husband who have wives dealing with these issues. This book is a must for you to read and keep. I strongly encourage anyone that has dealt with sexually abuse to grab a copy of this book.

I was provided a copy of this book from the publisher Kregel through LitFuse Publicity Group. I want to thank Amy for making sure I rec’d this book, even though the publisher didn’t send it in time for the tour. The opinions in this review are mine only.
