Through this popular therapeutic book, Jan Frank, encourages victims of abuse to face the reality of what took place in their lives and the aftershocks that continue to take a toll. Then, implementing a Christian therapeutic approach, she walks them through the steps, and the stories of healing.

As a victim of incest herself, Jan Frank understands the confounding feelings with which victims wrestle and she offers empathy, understanding and proven steps toward recovery. Each step is explained in its own chapter: from Facing the Problem to Tracing Behavioral Difficulties and Symptoms, to Rebuilding Self-Image and Relationships, etc., and eventually Restoration. The book concludes with an excellent section featuring answers to questions most often asked by abuse victims and those who love them. Clinicians and their clients will benefit from a touching and therapeutic journey through the Door of Hope.
