REPAIR for Teens recognizes the unique issues confronting adolescent abuse survivors including peer pressure, difficulties with school, acting out, the urge to self-soothe with cutting or unhealthy eating behaviors, running away and the possibility of living with an abuser in the family. Remember, 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys have been sexually assaulted by the age of 18. No teenager should be alone in trying to sort out their life after sexual abuse.

I bought this book for a family member and so I am hoping that she will find it helpful. I told her to show it to her therapist and see what parts might be most useful. I am very glad you had this book available.
An amazing start to recovery By Melissa Moreno on September 20, 2012
This book is an amazing resource for teens who have lived through the horrific ordeal of abuse, whether it’s emotional, physical and most of all sexual abuse. One in four girls and one in six boys have been abused by the time they are eighteen years old.
Each one of these special survivors deals with many different issues including difficulties in school, eating disorders, and acting out. Each one has their own journey of repair and transformation, but only after recognizing that there is a problem and committing to allowing the healing to begin.
What a wonderful explanation of the 6 Stage Program or abuse survivors that will transform your life forever!
Marjorie McKinnon’s REPAIR FOR TEENS Helps With Healing, Moving Forward By Cyrus Webb (TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE) on July 7, 2012
There is nothing like an event happening in your life that seems to strip away your power and make you feel less than. For those who have suffered with abuse in silence they may have felt shame, alone and unworthy of love. In her new book REPAIR FOR TEENS Marjorie McKinnon shows that it is not only possible to move forward but you are not alone in the situations they you face.
This book helps us to see not only the impact that abuse can have on a child, but the long road that may lay ahead for coming to terms with the abuse and knowing that there are others out there willing to help you through the process.
I see this publication as an invaluable resource because it really comes to the heart of how you can take back the power over your life and not keep it in the hands of the one who betrayed you. The book also helps you to know that the abuse does not have to be the defining moment or event in your world. You can move on and in many cases forgive the abuser, knowing that control is back in your hands and you are the one that will determine how far you will go in your life.
REPAIR FOR TEENS is just the thing abuse survivors of all ages need in order to take advantage of the healing that is available. It all begins, however, with the realization of more being possible for you and your best days still being ahead of you not behind.
