G: Getting Through the Day

Thank God it's Friday! It has been a little over a week since the A to Z Challenge began and I am loving it! I hope you are enjoying my journey half as much as I am as we pay homage to "Sexual Assault Awareness" and "Child Abuse Prevention" month. Today, G stands for Getting Through the Day: Strategies for Adults Hurt as Children by Nancy J. Napier.

Nancy J. Napier's book, Getting Through the Day: Strategies for Adults Hurt as Children, enables adults who had been traumatized during their childhood.  Napier provides "new" strategies to meet the demands of daily living with the help of numerous exercises for self-help.
About the Author:
Nancy J. Napier is a marriage and family therapist in private practice in New York City. She is a former president of the New York Society for the Study of Multiple Personality and Dissociative Disorders, a board member of the New York Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, and a past board member of the New York Milton H. Erickson Society for Psychotherapy and Hypnosis. She is the author of several books, including Sacred Practices for Conscious Living.

Where to Buy: Amazon ($20.95), B&N ($20.95)

Hope this has been helpful! And remember that every victim needs an outlet to share and find their voice! Therapy and journaling are my two favourite methods for finding my voice but to each their own so if you know someone who is looking for a self-help book, this might be a worthwhile option. The reviews are high and Napier's CV is impressive. Cheers!

Updated on 7-18-18: Price is now $20.95.


  1. Support is always good! Books a great way to get it.

    A Bit to Read

  2. Wow! That books sounds like something that would be great for me. I've added it to my wish list.

    And sadly (?), that's pretty much my main goal: just get through each day.
