This popular radio talk-show host helps those scarred by the pain of divorce, alcoholism, and physical or sexual abuse to search back into their pasts, uncover the real root of their problems, and overcome the lingering damage

"Pain and Pretending" is a significant work dealing in a balanced and sensitive way with the importance of coming to terms with the past. Since bitterness over past issues causes a large proportion of emotional problems, this book can provide practical help for Christians in developing and maintaining mental health

"Pain and Pretending" explains so much of what we who have been hurt by the past do not understand. It offers hope and answers, and I highly recommend it..

I've discovered this book somehow in the process of searching for good ACOA literature. It is filled with stories about real people who suffered from physical, sexual, emotional abuses in the childhood. It is usually not obvious how often hidden pain from any victimization experience affects future life, decisions, relations, emotions, everything.. and there is hope and way to recovery. It was really helpful for me and I'm sure it will be for you. Highly recommended book
