Title:  Repair for Kids - A Children’s Program for Recovery from Incest and Childhood Sexual Abuse

Author:  Marjorie McKinnon

Publisher:  Loving Healing Press

Reviewer: Marilyn Meredith  – AAA member

This is a much needed book for children who have been sexually abused. With delightful illustrations and a simply guided tour, this can be used by an older child by himself or under the guidance of a family members or adult friend. (There are instructions for an adult who uses the book to help a child.)

The author has set up a six-stage program which she identifies this way:

Recognition, Entry, Process, Awareness, Insights and Rhythm. There are work sheets for the child to use in learning about their feelings, building self-esteem and optimism, learning the difference between healthy and unhealthy messages, learning skills to soothe the inner-child, how to reveal inner feelings through drawing, breaking free from false shame, cultivating self-care skills and practices, learning about boundaries and bodies, and how to return to the natural rhythm and flow of life.

The author has used simple terms and created easy tools to help any child work through the devastation of sexual abuse.

Highly recommended.

Winner of the 2009 American Authors Association's Golden Quill Award!
