Product Details


“In a world of oppressive power systems set up to invalidate the experiences of survivors at every turn, Healing Honestly meets the reader at each juncture of dismal and extends a hand toward inner wisdom. With gentle candor, practical strategy, and a healthy dose of humor, Alisa reminds survivors that healing may be an unpredictable journey, but it is not one any of us should have to walk alone.”
—Sonya Renee Taylor, author of the New York Times bestselling The Body Is Not an Apology

“With a deft blend of bracing candor, thoughtful research, and irreverent humor, Healing Honestly is a book that CSA survivors have deserved for a long time. Zipursky writes unapologetically as a survivor, for survivors, weaving together intimate moments from her own life with a compassionate and accessible consideration of what it really takes to cope, heal, grow, and live after experiencing trauma. Whether you’re someone who has shelves filled with books on the subject or you are learning about CSA for the first time, Healing Honestly offers insight, validation, and guidance for how to navigate all facets of a difficult but important topic.”
—Rebecca Grant, author of Birth

“Reading Healing Honestly is like being in an honest, accountable, and at times very funny conversation with a new, trusted childhood sexual abuse survivor-friend who not only shares all the beautiful complexities of her healing journey but also creates a nonjudgmental space for readers, especially survivors, to do the same. Alisa Zipursky doesn’t talk down to her readers. Instead, her conversational style of writing holds survivors’ hands, provides the shoulder we are often looking to lean on, and continuously reminds us that we are not alone on our healing journey. Alisa speaks directly and unapologetically to survivors and to our loved ones/coconspirators who are committed to supporting our healing journey. I have immense gratitude and joy that Healing Honestly is out in the world, providing new pathways for healing from childhood sexual abuse.”
—Aishah Shahidah Simmons, editor of the Lambda Literary Award–winning anthology Love WITH Accountability and Producer/Director, NO! The Rape Documentary
