In her first self-published book, “Healing from Hidden Abuse,” Southlake therapist Shannon Thomas narrates the raw and emotional journey that psychological abuse victims face. The 255-page book provides readers with a roadmap to recovery, including her Six Stages of Healing. Tantor Media, a leading audiobook publisher, also released an audiobook version of Thomas' book.

A leading therapist and survivor herself, Thomas is one of the few in the field to bridge the gap between pop culture and clinical advice. A valuable tool for victims and therapists alike, “Healing from Hidden Abuse” is now spreading the message of recovery internationally, with registered host groups and book study clubs in eight countries and 27 states across the United States.

“Psychological abuse leaves no bruises. There are no broken bones. There are no holes in the walls. The bruises, brokenness and holes are held tightly within the target of the abuse,” said Thomas in a press release. “There is so little understanding and step-by-step process for psychological abuse victims to find healing. As a counselor and survivor, I decided to shed light on the crippling effect of this hidden abuse and build the model of recovery to help targets go deeper with their healing.”
