"More about Our Books from Loving Healing Press," by Victor Volkman

Welcome to Day 4 of this 6-day virtual tour to promote the wonderful books I am fortunate enough to publish. I'm Victor Volkman, CEO of Loving Healing Press, the fastest-growing publishing company devoted to self-growth, recovery, psychology, and social work books.

Today I'd like to tell more about our abuse recovery books for children. We have a variety of authors contributing several different points of view. There are usually a few key goals of the literature. First of all, to make sure the child reading the book (or having it read to him) knows that the abuse was never his fault, he is not to blame for what happened to him. Secondly, to let him know that he is not the only person in the world that this has happened to; he is not somehow uniquely bad or different. Thirdly, to focus on prevention of further incidents, for example by educating about boundaries and what to do if they are not respected. Last, there is an emphasis on discovering feelings, recognizing them, and building on self-image through affirmations and recognizing the positive.

Some of our books build on specific incidents or scenarios. Annabelle’s Secret deals with abuse from an older neighborhood boy. Reena’s Bollywood Dream features an uncle who grooms a girl to make inappropriate movies of her. REPAIR for Kids aged 6 to 12 and the brand new REPAIR for Toddlers are a pair of books by Marjorie McKinnon, a leader whose abuse recovery network has more than 50 chapters worldwide. Her books are largely educational in terms of prevention, what to do in an emergency, games and activities to restore self-esteem and optimism all within a prescribed seven stage program.

I could write or talk about our wonderful books all day. But several of our new books are showcased all this month at the National Writing for Children Center. Please visit the center at to learn more about them. And, to find out more about ALL of our books, please visit our website at

I'm so glad there are books available to help children with this. Thanks for letting us know about them.

It may be a niche, but it can't be overstated that it is an incredibly important niche when it comes to our children. It is clear that you take a deep sense of pride and care in what you provide to these readers. Simply saying "thank you" seems paltry indeed.

I hadn't realized there was a line of books geared towards child abuse recovery. Very good and I hope that many schools, libraries, and family oriented organizations know about these books to help children.

What a sensitive subject to approach, but one that certainly needs to be addressed. Kudos to Loving Healing Press for the fine work that they do with their books.

Best wishes,
