Psychotherapist Susan Anderson had been helping her clients overcome heartbreak and loss for over twenty years when her longtime partner told her he didn’t love her anymore and left their relationship out of the blue. As she struggled to cope with her own pain from that abandonment, she recognized the extent to which realistic, well-researched, and clinically tested steps are required in order to heal from such a deep emotional injury. That is what the enclosed advance reading copy of The Abandonment Recovery Workbook: Guidance through the Five Stages of Healing from Abandonment, Heartbreak, and Loss (New World Library, August 15, 2016) is designed to provide.

“In the course of this book, I will give heartbreak the serious treatment it deserves, investigating the source of its overpowering feelings,” writes Anderson. “Together, we’ll explore ways to prevent rage from inflicting such devastating consequences on self and others. We’ll also learn about the lingering grief of abandonment — why it is so difficult to let go when someone leaves you.”

The Abandonment Recovery Workbook helps readers navigate the five stages of abandonment — shattering, withdrawal, internalizing, rage, and lifting — so they can:
?    Overcome the heartbreak caused by the loss of love
?    Heal the underlying abandonment wound from past or present losses
?    Build self-esteem and overcome fear of rejection
?    Resolve issues of mistrust and insecurity
?    Identify the self-defeating behaviors of the outer child
?    Make better choices and build new connections
?    Increase the capacity to love
