Expert guidance in stopping and recovering from abuse Renowned psychotherapist Beverly Engel returns to the topic that made her famous– abuse and recovery from abuse. Engel writes that the primary way survivors can avoid abusing others the way they were abused is to work on their own recovery. In Breaking the Cycle of Abuse, she presents all-new action steps to help people recover– and take control to end the cycle of abuse once and for all. Offering her own personal story of abuse and abusive behavior as well as the stories of many others, Engel offers support, hope, and compassion. The strategies in this book will help readers stop passing on the legacy of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse to their children and partners. Beverly Engel (Los Osos, CA), a psychotherapist for over 25 years, is the author of many successful self-help books, including The Emotionally Abusive Relationship (0-471-45403-6) and Loving Him without Losing You (0-471-40979-0).
