Bookish
This is the 'client' version of book Healing the Unimaginable: Treating Ritual Abuse and Mind Control. The books are very similar but the index is much better in this one, and it has a few extra chapters such a the one about Incest.

If you've come to this book by your therapist or you came across this book because the subject hits the nerve - you've made the right move. Life changing and you are on the right track. Triggering but the author addresses that and while providing gentle warnings to take care of yourself while reading it also doesn't shy away from the truth.
