Hey everyone, Im new to the forum. I have been working with my parents in coping and healing from my dads abuse, which has wreaked havoc on our family for over 40 years or more. My dad will be attending a weekend retreat in April and my mom is working on receiving the same type of counseling in dealing with his abuse. It is wonderful to know this support group exists and that I have a huge family in which to draw wisdom and experience through and we start this process of healing. Thank you all for being here for us beginners. We truly need and value you.
