The word abandonment conjures up children left at birth, fathers packing up and moving out, sudden lovers betraying one another’s hearts, and sudden death. But abandonment breaks our hearts in subtle ways, too, as when we are not recognized for our accomplishments, dismissed by a friend, or not invited to a party. It is a challenge that everyone must eventually face at one level or another.
In The Abandonment Recovery Workbook: Guidance through the Five Stages of Healing from Abandonment, Heartbreak, and Loss (New World Library, August 15, 2016), psychotherapist and bestselling author Susan Anderson helps readers heal the wound of abandonment through a step-by-step process of personal recovery.
