The author, herself a survivor, teaches how to recognize the signs of abuse, handle negative feelings, become an effective advocate, deal with the batterer, and distinguish between being an anchor and a rescuer.
People have many feelings about domestic abuse. Especially if it is happening to someone they care about. They feel shock. Anger. Sadness. Frustration. This book helps transform those feelings into compassion, because when you feel compassion, you can experience the suffering of another, and that will move you to listen, talk, or take action.
