The guidebook explores how to keep surviving a traumatic background in many settings – as a mother, as an employee, as someone active on the dating scene, as a person undertaking marriage again, as a friend, as a business owner, and – critically – as a child of God. This guidebook also includes the words of others who have gone down my same dark roads and tells how they managed to emerge. The personal journal is a companion to the Relationships After Trauma Guidebook. As you read through the guidebook, you will be prompted to complete several journal assignments to track your personal growth. This journal will support your efforts, freeing you to write open and honestly.
