The main goal of this book is to identify and define the characteristics of Trauma Bonding as a result of Narcissistic Abuse and Complex PTSD. Many survivors of abuse feel hopeless and trapped in their situation, not knowing that there is a way out. Survivors of this abuse usually get stuck in the repetitive patterns and don't recognize how to escape an unhealthy situation. Many survivors of abuse were never role modeled as to what a healthy relationship looks like, and therefore don't actually identify that their relationship is tragically unhealthy. This is quite common with sufferers of Complex PTSD.

This is a recovery book to provide knowledge and guidance to individuals who are trauma bonded and in a relationship that is unhealthy, but don't have the guidance, support and means to escape.
