About Kimberly Callis

When Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder forced me to leave a 25 year career in management consulting, I turned my focus to writing. My primary interest is in post traumatic stress disorder as it relates to developmental trauma and childhood sexual abuse. I have spent much of the last five years researching this topic from numerous perspectives. I hope to share my insight and experiences to help others in their recovery process.

Review by: Mary Ann Goughler on July 18, 2013 :
Please remember this is just my opinion. Going in order: Forward: para 4, you used the word "appreciated" while using words as devastating, heinous...didn't quite seem to jive. Maybe something other than "appreciated"? Para 5, unbiased, very difficult to accomplish. INTRO: last para, I completely understand your personal discretion re: avoiding spiritual based recovery...but then you state, "you want this work to reach openly to every person." Maybe contradicting? There are allot of spiritual people out there. UNDERSTANDING: Typo para 1, "it took me quite some time to understand that what (I) was.... I loved para 3,4,5 BRILLIANTLY written, also loved, "It is a death within a life." Very poignant sentence. RE-EXPERIENCING: Para 1,2,3 again BRILLIANT, brought me to my own experience, "every morning"...also, "The word stupid comes to mind." made me smile knowing I'm not alone. AVOIDANCE: Loved the numeric listing, #7 hit home for me. Typo, last page 1st sentence, "I also avoided the connections (to) my former life... Last page, para 2, sad. Overall: extremely informative, educational, real. I'd like a little more personal/personality injected....but then again, it's not my book, just reviewing remember? I'll give 4 1/2 stars just bc of the typos. Great job!!
