Your journey to healing and wholeness after domestic violence begins here.

Domestic violence is about power and control. As a Black woman and a survivor of domestic violence, you have had your power taken away from you against your will. You are not alone, and there are tools you can use to feel whole and in control of your life again. Written by two psychologists and experts in BIPOC mental health, this book will show you how to start healing--mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

Grounded in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), this compassionate book addresses the unique struggles faced by Black women who have experienced domestic violence. You'll find practical and empowering skills to help you understand and heal from trauma, leave harmful situations, and regain a sense of safety and freedom. You'll also learn how to build a safety net, trust yourself--and others--again, and let go of the shame and guilt resulting from your experience. Finally, you'll discover ways to reclaim your self-worth, set boundaries in your relationships, and make room for self-care in your day-to-day life.

If you're ready to leave--or have already left--an abusive situation, this book can help you heal from the trauma of domestic violence and discover personal freedom in mind, body, and spirit.
