I would like to offer fellow group members who have therapeutic or healing practices a complementary copy of my new book on the psychological trauma wrought by abandonment and betrayal.

“Love and the Mystery of Betrayal: Recovering Your Trust and Faith after Trauma, Deception, and Loss of Love”, released in late 2014, has received high praise from reviewers, therapists and other healers, and readers alike. It has already been honored as a Finalist in the USA Best Books of 2014 (for narrative nonfiction).

This book is invaluable for your clients who are struggling through betrayal trauma, and also, I believe, will help you to better understand their experience. It is my goal to get the book into the hands of those who can most benefit from it that is why I am making this offer to you.

Please reply to me with an email address if you would like to receive your free copy. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO POST YOUR INFO PUBLICLY HERE, you can click on my name above which takes you to my membership page in the Alliance, then click SEND A MESSAGE under the Jung photo and my name on the left side of the page).

Also, please indicate which format you prefer—print, Kindle, epub or PDF. If you prefer print, we will need a mailing address. We will send the ebook versions in 1-3 days, while the print version will take 7-10 business days.

Thank you!

-Sandy Lee Dennis

      -Leila for Sandra Lee Dennis

  • Thank you Sandy,  I want to express my appreciation for this wonderful book  What a lovely gift that you have generously shared (even paying postage) with our Depth Psychology Membership.  It is a valuable contribution to library.  When I have read it I will add a review to Amazon.

    In light,  Afton Blake

    • Thank you, Afton, for your appreciation. Providing the book to those who requested it has been worth it to me to help get the books into the hands of those who most need it. If L&MB appeals to therapists/ readers on this forum, I know it will more likely be passed on for "first aid" for those suffering as I was. I found little out there that addressed my need for validation and support. That was a primary driving force for me in writing the book. Warmly, Sandra
