The book provides you time and space to experience your emotions and unlock the smallest clues to find the largest treasure...your truth...your healing.
Healing from childhood sexual abuse requires more than just telling a survivor to “get over it” or take some medication to “feel better”. You cannot just put her in front of a psychiatrist and say, “fix her” or in front of a pastor and say, “pray for her”. There is no quick fix for mental health. Survivors require information, resources, and practices for healing past childhood sexual abuse. This book serves as that source of information, resources, and practices for progressing past emotional, mental, and spiritual barriers while handling:
The A.F.T.R. Framework breaks down the complex healing of childhood sexual abuse into 4 phases of liberation...Acknowledge. Forgive. Transition. Rebirth.

Forgive...leave anger and its friends...hurt, insecurity, guilt, and anxiety...in the past. You are ready for a future without anger. The goal is to learn forgiveness.
Transition from Survivor to Victor. The Transition Rule guides you in breaking down and changing your habits. The goal is to free up space in your mind, emotions, heart, and time for you to embrace your new view.
