Publisher's Summary

Like Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross' groundbreaking On Death and Dying, Susan Anderson's book clearly defines the five phases of a different kind of grieving - grieving over a lost relationship. An experienced professional who has specialized in helping people with loss, heartbreak, and abandonment for more than two decades, Anderson gives this subject the serious attention it deserves. The Journey from Abandonment to Healing is designed to help all victims of emotional breakups - whether they are suffering from a recent loss or a lingering wound from the past; whether they are caught up in patterns that sabotage their own relationships or they are in a relationship where they no longer feel loved. From the first stunning blow to starting over, this book provides a complete program for abandonment recovery.

    "finally! A book for our particular type of grief"

    Should be a mandatory reading for all mental health professionals. one size grief doesn't fit all.

    Story
    "Amazing Book"
    What made the experience of listening to The Journey from Abandonment to Healing the most enjoyable?

    It's been five years since my 20-year marriage was destroyed one morning. I have searched for books, gone to counseling but nothing made sense until I started reading this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I wondered how my partner was able to move on so quickly while I was still in love and incapable of moving on. This book described my situation to a "T" and was the first book that made sense to me. It helped me to get on the road to recovery. It is a must read if you are grieving over a relationship and can't seem to move on.


    What did you learn from The Journey from Abandonment to Healing that you would use in your daily life?

    I cannot look to anybody or anything else for my happiness except inside myself.


    Any additional comments?

    I feel deep gratitude to the author for writing this book.

    Story
    "You need this book."

    This book helped me through a really difficult time in my life.

    I had been searching for a therapist, and in the meantime I found this book. This book was so useful to me and what I was going through that I no longer needed to see a therapist so urgently. This book, by no means, is a replacement for therapy, but it has given me tools I connect with, and have been using regularly to better myself.

    If you are the kind of person who is willing to grow and learn about yourself and others, read this. It provides really simple tools to help make difficult situations much better managed. I now have the ability to act with reason and logic when presented with difficult or upsetting information, rather than feeling anger or sadness. I understand my emotions much better now.

    She also uses biological facts about how the brain processes information, which has provided some much needed justification.

    I will keep listening to this book as a reference, and have recommended it with a few people already. I could not recommend it more highly.

    "Excellent! A must-listen!"

    This book may be helpful for those who have issues related to abandonment, low self-esteem, negative cyclical thoughts, sustaining relationships, trust that loved ones/good things in their lives are steady and reliable, etc. I'm so grateful I listened to this, and have been recommending it to my friends. And now I'm recommending it to you! I hope it helps you. If not, please keep trying and looking.
