"Robin Marvel's Healing Childhood Trauma shares the wisdom of what her experience with the pain and trauma of life taught her. When we ask ourselves what the pain of our experience feels like, the words we use tell us what needs to be eliminated from life that will allow us to heal."
-- Bernie Siegel, MD, author of 365 Prescriptions For the Soul and The Art of Healing

"Robin Marvel hits a homerun with Healing Childhood Trauma. It's not just a book for reading--it's also a workbook that helps the adult survivor of childhood trauma find a new focus and develop new understanding of themselves while embarking on a healing journey."
-- John Patrick McCarron, Louisiana ambassador, National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse

"Healing Childhood Trauma provides insights and personal growth tips that will give the reader the permission to approach trauma in a positive way. The hands-on approach with self-reflection exercises throughout this book will help move PTSD victims to champions of life. This is the go-to book on recovering from childhood trauma. Bravo!"
-- Michael Levitt, CEO of Breakfast Leadership, author of 369 Days: How To Survive A Year of Worst-Case Scenarios

"Robin's basic message is that each of us has the power of choice: to change our self-perception, to forgive others, to be grateful, to heal and to take action. More importantly, readers will understand that there is no set timeline for healing. Each of us is unique and responds to trauma and adversity in our own per­sonal way. Robin herself is a pillar of strength, wisdom and guidance that inspires all of us to take control of our lives and make the difference our world needs."
-- Anita Casalina, writer and director of Imaginary Walls: A Film About Healing Racism

"In a personal yet poignant voice, Healing Childhood Trauma by Robin Marvel helps us understand why some people remain defined by their childhood trauma while others define new empowered paths of healing and growth. Marvel weaves together a compassionate blend of trauma exploration and anecdotal evidence supported with self-help exercises, mapping out a process for readers to transform their pain into purpose. This little book is not light. It just may change your perspective on how you live the rest of your life"
-- Holli Kenley, MA, MFT, author of Daughters Betrayed By Their Mothers: Moving From Brokenness To Wholeness
