Reviews & Endorsements:
"A perfect balance between depth, readability, and extensive hands-on experience, Healing the Unimaginable gently leads the reader through the darkest and largely unexplored areas of man-made trauma: Ritual Abuse and Mind Control. While many therapists think it unlikely that they will ever come across a survivor of such trauma, these cases are, in fact, less rare than one would like to believe; and recognizing the language of such survivors is thus our duty of care. This is an excellent handbook, to be read, re-read, and consulted many times over."
- Adah Sachs, co-author of Forensic Aspects of Dissociative Identity Disorder and Consultant Psychotherapist , Clinic for Dissociative Studies
"At last, a much needed contemporary exposition of the treatment of the sequelae of ritual abuse and mind control. Dr Miller has provided a systematic and demystifying guide for therapists who work with this challenging population."
