Love Trauma, by Paul Wagner, Ph.D.
(The Traumas of Divorce, Non-Fiction)
(Houston, TX/Wales, U.K.) Dr. Wagner’s Love Trauma compassionately explores the mighty divide that opens up when divorce or separation happens. His thorough and patient dissection of that divide allows divorcees to recognize the demons that keep us from getting beyond the divorce, the pitfalls of various post-divorce behaviors, and the procedures we can take to move past the pain. His examination of the divorcee’s viewpoint works like magic to make us feel we are not alone and indeed, that many people suffer the same kinds of indignities after divorce. But the examples of those who have got beyond it lift our spirits and make us believe surviving Love Trauma is possible.

This book is very detailed and each chapter is clear and descriptive in full detail. He helps us understand divorce. It’s not a comfortable situation, but with this book, I believe the process can be more comfortable. The perfect book for people to know that divorce is not the end and we can survive beyond it.”
