This survivor (a legal client of the first author and a therapy client of the second author) takes the reader on a remarkable odyssey. Her narrative brings the IFS model to life. Reading her story we learn how the human psyche overcomes even the most severe traumas and emotional injuries. From the IFS perspective, the survivors symptoms - the inability to trust anyone, the compulsive self-soothing or self-punishment, the pervasive sense of shame and badness, the hidden rage - are all seen not as symptoms of psychopathology, but as heroic efforts by warring subpersonalities to protect the core Self from the destructive effects of the abuse.

The authors provide guidelines for accessing this core Self, undamaged in even the most severely abused individuals. With the Self in the lead, survivors can release their parts from extreme roles and restore the internal system to its natural state of balance and harmony. The authors present revolutionary psychological theories that bring unfaltering hope to survivors of abuse. This illuminating, pioneering book opens a new world of understanding for all students of the human psyche.
