Item Description...
Overview
Beyond Our Control shows how God can free sexual assault victims from shame, guilt, resentment, and harmful memories. Leila Rae Sommerfeld uses her own story of recovery after rape, her reservoir of empathy, and her professional knowledge to help readers overcome emotional scars and become whole again. First she tells her story and the stories of those she has known in her work with the American Association of Christian Counselors. Then she tackles twenty-one tough topics in short, easily digestible chapters. A full resource for victims of sexual assault, Beyond Our Control includes discussion questions for group or individual reflection; a checklist that guides victims through steps to take after the assault; and appendices for husbands, fathers, friends, and pastors.

Publishers Description
Many women are waiting for help. Maybe you are too.

The statistics are startling: 12-38 percent of women have experienced sexual abuse and over the next decade, more than 900,000 women and 28 million children will become victims. Sexual abuse is not going away--and neither will its aftermath.

In "Beyond Our Control," Leila Rae Sommerfeld shares her own story of recovery after rape to give victims hope and encouragement to overcome the emotional scars associated with sexual abuse. Through her story and the stories of other survivors, you will discover

-the three levels of victimization
-myths about rape
-how to grow emotionally and spiritually through the coping process
-how God plays a role in freeing you from shame, guilt, resentment, and harmful memories

With Leila Rae's reservoir of empathy and bonus material (including discussion questions and appendices), "Beyond Our Control" is the perfect book to share the hopeful message that new life is possible-and it is within reach.

"Simply done, addressing major components of recovery. Suggestions are practical, realistic, and hopeful for women facing the life-changing trauma of rape."--Larry Day, Ph.D., author of "Self-Esteem: By God's Design"

""Beyond Our Control" brings hope and healing to hurting humanity."--Judy Boen, prison chaplain, founder/director of Captive Hearts

"An important resource for friends, counselors, pastors, and those wanting to help women recover from the aftermath of rape."--Bettie P. Mitchell, L.P.C, M.R., founder/director of Good Samaritan Ministries International
