Helpful Suggestions?

Post by Stephie » Wed May 03, 2017 6:02 am

I don't know if I should post in this section. I am a survivor asking for help for my gf.

She is struggling with all of this. And really needs to be able to ask questions and talk to people who understand.
I told her she could join isurvive but she doesn't want to invade on my healing space. Doesn't want me to feel like she's reading my diary I guess. Anyway, my question is... does anyone know of any other sites or resources? Books or websites or anything?

Any suggestions are appreciated :)

Hi Stephie,
The authors of Courage to Heal have a book called Allies in Heaing that is written for partners, so she could try that one. I think if she also just read some basic books about abuse and the impact it has it would probably be good so she could understand what you're going through. You could also try RAINN, the hotline, to see if they have resources for partners. Good wishes to you both!
