Breakthrough: The Art of Surviving - Giles D. Lascelle
Is a full and abundant life possible if your childhood has been shattered by abuse?
One in five of us experiences severe abuse in some form as a child, often leading to devastating emotional and mental health problems in adulthood. Giles D Lascelle, an abuse survivor, ordained minister and psychotherapist, examines the issues and shows how it is possible to break through to a place of freedom, peace and joy.
Combining psychological insights with a tender understanding of the compassionate heart of Christ, Giles shares what he has learnt in more than thirty years’ professional practice. An accessible and powerful resource, Breakthrough guides survivors in the art of recovery, informs those who love them, and shows how churches can respond.
