Purple Dragon Mother, by E.L. Henderson

Purple Dragon Mother – Healing from Child Abuse begins with a look at child abuse and its’ effects on lives; it goes on to give the author’s own experiences as a case study, and then provides a thorough and practical program for change. We witness the processes necessary to recover through the eyes of a survivor who has lived the journey; from the horror of the abusive childhood itself and the resulting pain in adulthood, to the years spent addressing it, to a fourteen-year professional career helping other survivors and observing what works.
E.L. Henderson has an unwavering belief in every survivor’s ability to overcome the harmful effects of child abuse and in this book, you will learn how. The message is simple – you are not alone, you can make things better and by the end of the program, your life will be unrecognisable.
