I'm thinking of:

Evict the Perpetrator from Your Brain: A Guide for Breaking the Hold that Sex Abuse (and the abuser) Has on You


Thanks for all the suggestions. It's still not ready so if you have more ideas, send them on.

I just posted something about a short film and saw this post - just wanted to add a comment - even tho the topics are regarding "breaking the hold" abusers have - scanning the TOC it also seems it's more about re-building what was taken/destroyed/injured by the abuser.

I'd like to suggest something along those lines - about re-building, perhaps "Reclaiming Your Life" with a subtitle regarding "Healing the Trauma of Abuse" - with or without "Sexual Abuse" or "Childhood Sexual Abuse" depending on whether or not the book covers adult sexual abuse as in prisons, military, etc.

Good luck and best to all - I'll be sure and look for the book.

The TOC contains several subjects that I've been wondering about but unable to find answers for. When will it come out, Ken? Soon I hope.
I agree with previous answers about keeping the main title short and attention-grabbing, then supplementing it with a longer, more de>

It is going to be hard to wait for this to come out. I am waiting expectantly.

The TOC lists "Predators". Will this include the sociopath? How about the psychopath?

Ken, I like the idea for the title that you picked.

I also can't wait for this to come out, it seems like such cache and wealth(no pun intended) of information. Like I said be for, "recovery bible." It seems to cover more bases than any other book on the subject.

Maybe a subtitle of: the "Complete Recovery Guide"?" maybe just say what it is, but the again I am not a writer or expert, just a statistic.

When I first saw the title above, I initially thought mind would work better than brain.

When I hear the word brain, I start thinking about being in a doctors office and get clinical versions of what IT looks like.

Upon futher reflection, I think it's kind of "CATCHY".
