Below you will find a list of webites that suggest various books, and guides that we hope will aid in your journey in healing. It is important that in your search for resources that you find reading that "sits well with you". Every situation is different, and everyone heals in their own way, and in their own time. Remember to pace yourself, and to only take in what you can handle, try not to overwhelm yourself. Try to find books who's authors seem to be speaking to you, and have information and techniques that pertain to your situation. Becoming Gold does not take responsibility or liability for any of the books or websites listed. We suggest books as one form of therapy, but recommend the your family doctor, therapist, or psychologist be involved in your healing process as well.

Tears of Joy is a book of healing for all children

"Most children dont't tell if they have been sexually violated. Most adults don't tell. Tears of Joy will give children the opportunity of disclosing 'the secret'. How I wish this book had been available when I was a child. It could have saved me fifty years of shame and pain" -Marilyn Van Derbur for Miss America, incest survivor

 

"Untill we can talk to our children about sexual abuse as casually as we do about other topics, they will continue to be victimized by adults. Every parent needs to talk about sexual abuse to his/her children. Tears of Joy is a good way to start!"- Dr. Lois Lee, founder/president, Children of the Night
