Let me begin by saying that the issues surround this book, are very near and dear to my own heart, as early on in my dating history, I found myself in an abusive relationship, and can relate to the author on many of her books points, including the self-victimizations many persons find themselves in, post-relationship. With that said, Invisible Witness: How I Overcame My Family’s Legacy of Domestic Violence, is a mental-health reference book, which is written in an relatable, commonsensical fashion, which engages the reader into a world of not only understanding relationship-driven abusive, but real life strategies to implement if you, or someone whom you know, is confronted or confined by this situation.

The book seeks to give the reader the ability to identify the markers of abuse and abusive pre-behavioral assessments as well. The book also highlights areas where mental health loopholes, add to the abundance of abuse in the country, by way of physicians ignoring the warning signs of abuse, including anorexia, bulimia, sexual and mental relationship-driven abuse. The author also points to techniques which can help remedy this situation by trained hypnotherapists.

Invisible Witness is a powerful, deeply emotional look at what happens to the silencing monotony of the abused in this country, the seemingly forgotten souls who suffer day in and day out, in the shadows of downtrodden relationship-driven abuse, in a way that is engaging; the book is a call to arms for community-driven persons looking to help those around themselves to end the cycle of abuse.

I idea that I have chosen to take away from this book, is that out society can openly turn a blind eye to abuse, only because those who are aware of the demonstrative behaviours involved in these despicable acts, chose to not speak up, speak out, and step forward, when justified. This book is not a substitute for professional therapy, but is an excellent source of self-empowerment for the abused, knowledgeable fact-based advice for those witnessing the abuse, and is a great reference for educators, community leaders, and persons wanting to be able to accurately identify the markers of abuse; I rate this book a eight out of ten.
