"Together We Heal answers a long awaited question; ‘What do we do now?’ If you are an adult child or you work with adult children, this book is for you. It helps us to understand not only ourselves, but also how working in a group allows us to heal. Szifra Birke and Kathy Mayer’s book is insightfully written and breaks down the fears about how to find recovery. It is a healing book!"

"From the clinician’s perspective, Together We Heal paints a comprehensive and accurate portrait of the group therapy process as well as presenting useful insights, commentary and therapeutic techniques. From the client’s point of view, Together We Heal clearly illustrates how adult children can heal from the pain, shame and isolation they experienced while growing up. I recommend this book most enthusiastically."
