“To save our families, nothing is more important than ending the spiral of violence. Here at last is a psychiatrist and activist whose programs can help adults to uproot the original trauma, and stop repeating the violence that was done to them. Creaing Sanctuary shows us how to save future children from abuse, empty our over-crowded jails, and rescue this nation from leaders who see violence as normal..” — Gloria Steinem –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
