Breakthrough: The Art of Surviving
Our book publishes next month!
After years of hard work, it’s almost time for you to get your hands on a copy of our book ‘Breakthrough: The Art of Surviving’ a resource for survivors of trauma and abuse, and those supporting them (individuals and community organisations).
As well as helping survivors understand the science behind the impact of trauma, and offering a safe and informed path to healing along their journey, this book also has a particular focus on struggles and support within Churches, as we hear from so many survivors that they’ve not found the help they were looking for in church settings most of all. So the book has extra features for those of faith wanting to support survivors better, or understand the impact of abuse alongside faith.
The book publishes on 17th October 2019 and will be available from all good bookstores.
You can PRE-ORDER your copies in our shop: www.traumabreakthrough.org/product/breakthrough-the-art-of-surviving/

We’ve been shortlisted in a wonderful competition, worth over £8000, to win an entire event at a premier venue (including setup, decorations, catering and security).
If we win, it means we'll have almost NO event costs for our charity dinner and auction, so virtually ALL of the funds we raise can help us expand the help we are able to offer survivors of trauma and abuse with clinics at new locations, being able to hire more therapists to support abuse survivors (we currently have a long waiting list of people wanting support), and more.
Breakthrough is one of a shortlist of 7 charities chosen from 100s, and with such a fantastic set of charities in the running, it’s safe to say we’re definitely the underdogs!
So we need your help...
The winners are chosen by public vote between 14th September and 30th September, so please help us to win this wonderful opportunity please PLEASE vote for Breakthrough at: https://www.somersetlive.co.uk/news/somerset-news/your-chance-vote-good-cause-3313119
That's all for now ...
