I invite you to come with me on a journey-a journey through life. In your passage through life, you want to be fully in charge of the route, the events, and the destination. As we travel, you need a clear view of where you have come from, where we are today and where you will be going. I believe I have a sincere story to present to you, my life as a Jehovah’s Witness: “Used Abused and Forgotten.” In my story there are many events that have adversely affected me as I grew up. I speak of the wrongs I have suffered, and of those who inflicted them; the memories of painful experiences and harmful early influences and unpleasant past events. Together we will consider the importance of what happens when one’s life is decimated by control in the name of religion.

Reading Fallen, but Not Forgotten is like looking through a window into the life of Frances Munson as she reclaims the life God laid out for her, the life she tried so hard to throw awayby making bad choice after bad choice. She opens her life up to the reader, not as some autobiographical novel, but as a living example of what God can and will do in a broken life. It isnt a warm and fuzzy, feel-good read like often seen, but a raw and revealing look at her life, the good, the bad, and the otherwise. She honestly discusses her mistakes, bad choices, and the opportunities God gave her to make a change. You see how God in His loving role as a Father began by whispering and did not give up until He finally shook her world to pieces to get her attention. With nothing left, but the consequences of her actions, she sought Him, and is now using her life, and her past filled with mistakes and pain, to help others. She is dedicating her life to showing others what she has learned through it all, that no matter how far you fall, God Never forgets you, Never abandons you, Never gives up on you, and you Never fall below His Grace or Mercy!
This is a collection of poems about lust, love, anger, solitude, and all that the artist could find in the inspiration of his own frustrations. They were written during the years of 2009 to 2015. The artist was in his early twenties, and these poems reflect the ideas of his adolescence.
The current homeless crisis in the UK has become a major concern across a broad spectrum of society. In particular, homelessness is a tragedy for vulnerable young people, many of whom do not want a hand-out but rather an opportunity to lead a normal life. The issues raised in the book are supported by many real life experiences from young people in crisis.
Back Page Without my past, I would never be who I am today. God has taken all the pain and turned it around for my good and heaven's gain. Once you walk through the door of healing, it's your responsibility to embrace your healing. We can get deliverance and still not be free. We can be delivered from abuse, but never truly free because we are still looking through eyes and mindset of the abused victim. Once healed, don't look back at what you were or what happened to you. You are a new person in Christ. Move pass your past. Just like an animal who was raised in a cage and never let out, let someone open the door. It will never go out because it doesn't realize it's free. We can get delivered and never walk through the open door or shake off the chains that have us bound. What the devil meant for your harm, God can turn it around for your good and his glory, only if you are willing to allow him into your brokenness. Until you let your past die, it will not let your future live. You have to forgive even yourself. Great people of faith, they follow Jesus away from the pain of the past. Take the path God has chosen for you, not the path man told you to go down.
In Thomas H. Cook’s first novel, a weary detective tracks a blood-crazed psychopath Blood seeps into the gutters at the children’s zoo in Central Park. Two deer have been slaughtered, one stabbed fifty-seven times and the other slashed across the neck. Normally it would be a case for the Parks Department, but these are no ordinary deer. The pride of the small menagerie, they were given to the zoo by a prominent socialite who cannot afford bloody headlines. The NYPD hands the case to Detective Reardon, star of the homicide squad. A recent widower at fifty-six, Reardon has seen too many human victims to care much about the two butchered animals. He resents being taken off other pressing cases for the sake of politics, but soon another killing snaps him to attention. Two women are found dead in their apartment, one stabbed fifty-seven times and the other with her throat cut. Surely this vicious parallel isn’t a coincidence.…
Everyone needs love—true, unconditional love. But what if you have known nothing but bullying, rejection, mental/physical abuse (including sexual abuse), self-mutilation, despair, and utter hopelessness? And what if you feel that you are not worthy of love, and blame yourself for all the ills that have befallen you? Is true love attainable? Based on real events, Looking for Love is the story about Danielle, a solitary, suicidal teenager who battles constant and incessant abuse. She lives a life in pursuit of love, craving just a scintilla of affection from her parents and the gentle touch of her mother. Transferring from one school to another, she is always the outcast where no one even talks to her. Almost everyone can point to an event in their lives that changed them forever. If only Danielle would have known about a certain thing in elementary school, her life would have taken a totally different direction. But not knowing that one thing led to more bullying and further crushed her already-fragile emotional state. When you have no friends; when no one talks to you or even acknowledges your presence; when your father ignores you; when you're the product of a mixed marriage and your racist mother berates you and detests your mere existence because you are the "wrong" skin color; when you can't trust anyone; and when you even question your sexual identity, what do you do? Is there an escape from bullying, abuse, despair, rejection, and utter hopelessness? Looking for Love is about hope, resiliency, and the quest for true love.

Taking an in-depth look at the most current research on memory of traumatic events, this book contains state-of-the-art data in the controversial area of repressed memory. Contributors, major figures in the field, integrate multidisciplinary findings into proposals for coherent treatment, and legal and social policy and practices.
Child abuse policy in the United States contains dangerous contradictions, which have only intensified as the public slowly accepted it as a middle class problem. One contradiction is the rapidly expanding child abuse industry (made up of enterprising psychotherapists and attorneys) which is consuming enormous resources, while thousands of poor children are seriously injured or killed, many while being "protected" by public agencies. This "rediscovery" has also led to the frenzied pursuit of offenders, resulting in the sacrifice of some innocent people. Moreover, the media's focus on the sensational details of high-visibility sexual abuse cases has helped to trivialize, if not commercialize, the child abuse problem. As such, child abuse has gone from a social problem to a social spectacle. By the 1980s the child welfare system had become a virtual "nonsystem," marked by a staggering turnover of staff, unmanageable caseloads, a severe shortage of funding, and caseloads composed of highly dysfunctional families (many with drug-related problems). To make room for these families, public agencies rationed services by increasingly screening-out child abuse reports which contained little likelihood of serious bodily harm. In The Politics of Child Abuse in America, the authors argue that child abuse must be viewed as a public safety problem. This redefinition would make it congruent with other family-based social trends, including the crackdown on domestic violence. Children must have the same legal protection currently extended to physically and sexually abused women. This can be done by creating a "Children's Authority," which would have the overall charge for protecting children. Specifically, Children's Authorities would have the responsibility for providing the six main functions of child protection: investigation, enforcement, placement services, prevention and education, family support, and research and development. Offering a unique perspective on the cold reality o
Beginning in the 1990s, the contentious “memory wars” divided psychologists into two schools of thought: that adults’ recovered memories of childhood abuse were generally true, or that they were generally not, calling theories, therapies, professional ethics, and survivor credibility into question. More recently, findings from cognitive psychology and neuroimaging as well as new theoretical constructs are bringing balance, if not reconciliation, to this polarizing debate. Based on presentations at the 2010 Nebraska Symposium on Motivation, True and False Recovered Memories: Toward a Reconciliation of the Debate assembles an expert panel of scholars, professors, and clinicians to update and expand research and knowledge about the complex interaction of cognitive, emotional, and motivational factors involved in remembering—and forgetting—severe childhood trauma. Contrasting viewpoints, elaborations on existing ideas, challenges to accepted models, and intriguing experimental data shed light on such issues as the intricacies of identity construction in memory, post-trauma brain development, and the role of suggestive therapeutic techniques in creating false memories. Taken together, these papers add significant new dimensions to a rapidly evolving field. Featured in the coverage: The cognitive neuroscience of true and false memories. Toward a cognitive-neurobiological model of motivated forgetting. The search for repressed memory. A theoretical framework for understanding recovered memory experiences. Cognitive underpinnings of recovered memories of childhood sexual abuse. Motivated forgetting and misremembering: perspectives from betrayal trauma theory. Clinical and cognitive psychologists on all sides of the debate will welcome True and False Recovered Memories as a trustworthy reference, an impartial guide to ongoing controversies, and a springboard for future inquiry.
An examination of the understudied, yet significant role of Florida and its populace during the Civil War. In many respects Florida remains the forgotten state of the Confederacy. Journalist Horace Greeley once referred to Florida in the Civil War as the “smallest tadpole in the dirty pool of secession.” Although it was the third state to secede, Florida’s small population and meager industrial resources made the state of little strategic importance. Because it was the site of only one major battle, it has, with a few exceptions, been overlooked within the field of Civil War studies. During the Civil War, more than fifteen thousand Floridians served the Confederacy, a third of which were lost to combat and disease. The Union also drew the service of another twelve hundred white Floridians and more than a thousand free blacks and escaped slaves. Florida had more than eight thousand miles of coastline to defend, and eventually found itself with Confederates holding the interior and Federals occupying the coasts—a tenuous state of affairs for all. Florida’s substantial Hispanic and Catholic populations shaped wartime history in ways unique from many other states. Florida also served as a valuable supplier of cattle, salt, cotton, and other items to the blockaded South. A Forgotten Front: Florida during the Civil War Era provides a much-needed overview of the Civil War in Florida. Editors Seth A. Weitz and Jonathan C. Sheppard provide insight into a commonly neglected area of Civil War historiography. The essays in this volume examine the most significant military engagements and the guerrilla warfare necessitated by the occupied coastline. Contributors look at the politics of war, beginning with the decade prior to the outbreak of the war through secession and wartime leadership and examine the period through the lenses of race, slavery, women, religion, ethnicity, and historical memory.
Abused by Therapy debunks an enduring myth dating back to Freud, that certain conditions are nearly always caused by childhood trauma. Therapists believing this will use recovered memory therapy to search for this hidden cause behind current problems. They may find it – but what exactly are they finding? When their clients recover memories of horrifying trauma, often involving sexual abuse by their parents, does this reveal what really happened, or does it merely reflect the therapist’s assumptions? This unique book gives an inside view of the process by which people are persuaded to rewrite their past history, so that loving parents become seen as abusers who must be rejected. The new memories may be completely false, yet they can shatter the lives of all concerned: not just the clients and their accused families, but also the therapists themselves, who become trapped into upholding increasingly implausible and distressing beliefs. An international campaign is now promoting the view that dissociative disorders, such as multiple personality disorder, are caused by severe early trauma. It is argued that there is no scientific basis for this claim, and that the recommended treatment has not been shown to confer any benefits that outweigh its heavy cost.
