It's Time to Listen and Help

Table of Contents  - Introduction - Chapter 1 - Chapter 12
Forbidden GriefThrough individual counseling and group therapy sessions, Dr. Burke has devoted the last 18 years to the research and treatment of women struggling with post-abortion issues. Many of the women she treated came to her because other therapists refused to believe that an abortion could cause significant trauma. Other women came to her because their family and friends failed to understand the reality of their pain and suffering.

In Forbidden Grief, Dr. Burke explains the importance of listening to those who are struggling with past abortions, and suggests ways we can create a more understanding and healing society, where women will no longer be required to hide their pain.

Drawing on the experience and insights of hundreds of her clients, Dr. Burke shows how repressed feelings may be acted out through self-destructive behavior, broken relationships, obsessions, eating disorders, parenting difficulties and other emotional or behavioral problems.

Abortion causes conflict. It fragments political parties, churches, schools, neighborhoods and families. These conflicts mirror the division within the post-abortive person. Many women have said they faced a daily, internal battle between condemning themselves and defending their choice.

Forbidden Grief gives the reader a better understanding of the nature and origin of unresolved abortion issues and what steps can be taken to find healing.
