About the Author Reisser is a marriage and family therapist.
Superb Resource WJ Thorn In this book, Teri Reisser, a marriage and family therapist and a pioneer in the field of abortion aftermath and healing, has presented an outline of the aftermath of abortion and its resolution in a "reader-friendly", gentle fashion. This is an excellent book for someone trying to make sense of an abortion experience. Working in the field of abortion healing myself, I know that many women have found this book most helpful to them.. "A book for Christians only" according to A Customer. This book definitely takes a religious perspective on the issue of abortion. As someone who is not a Christian, I found much of the advice to go contrary to my own religious beliefs about life and conception. If you are a Christian person who has been through an abortion, this book would probably be helpful to you as you recover. For me, many of the suggestions about thoughts and activities for healing just did not fit the situation. The book, like many others on this subject, also does not do much for women like. "On track and very helpful" according to JThomp. Reisser does a great job of exposing and describing the silent epidemic of pain and suffering that many post abortive women are experiencing. I found this book to be right on track with describing the feelings I have experienced 10 years or more after my abortion. It does a very good job of recognizing the importance of one's spiritual perspective and family situation in the healing process. From my perspective, it is not overly "Christian" in perspective.
