This second edition of her valuable book is a vital asset to every therapist who seeks in-depth comprehension of ways to empower the survivors of incest…contains excellent guidance…a thorough index, an amazing reference section, guide to further reading and exhaustive appendices for both incest survivors and their counselors. — Hypnosis DepotCourtois has succeeded in integrating the explosion of knowledge and expertise developed over the intervening years into a comprehensive and authoritative second edition…She is one of those gifted professionals who can combine the kind of meticulous academicity, clinical wisdom, warmth and compassion that is so evident in Healing the Incest Wound. — Dr. James Chu (APA Division 29 Newsletter)Twenty years ago, Dr. Courtois was a pioneer. Now she is a wise authority, Healing the Incest Wound has been a classic since it was first published, and has helped to enlighten and train a generation of practitioners. The second edition, which integrates new findings from many disciplines, will remain a classic for the next generation. — Judith Herman, MD, author, Trauma and RecoveryIt was hard to imagine how Christine Courtois could improve on what was already an enduring classic, but this second edition of Healing the Incest Wound represents a quantum leap forward. Dr. Courtois, in her usual extremely thorough, scholarly, and clinically astute fashion, has created a new classic. Every therapist should read this book, no matter what the focus of their practice...it creates the foundation for competence, and does so brilliantly and accessibly. Bravo, Chris! — Laura S.
