What People are Saying About Lynda Bevan's books
“This is a well thought out, useful litle book that is an excellent guide for those
recovering form a broken, long-term relationship.” —Robert Rich, PhD,
M.A.P.S., author of Cancer: A Personal Challenge
“The dissolution of relationships, especially of the romantic
variety, leaves the abandoned partner dazzled, depleted, and
traumatized. In such a state of mind, one gropes for concise,
hands-on no-nonsense guidance. Regrettably, most self-help literature
is bloated, narcissistic, and off-topic. If you know
someone who has just been painfully dumped by their significant
other—buy them this booklet.”
—Sam Vaknin, Malignant Self Love: Narcissism Revisited.
“Lynda Bevan delivers what she promises in the title of the
book: it is a practical guide and a no-nonsense approach. Her
descriptions of the experiences are palpable.”
—Chin Tao, LMFT
“This is a well thought out, useful little book that is an excellent
guide for those recovering from a broken long-term
—Robert Rich, MSc, PhD, M.A.P.S.,
“Nowadays there are too many books about adult loving relationships,
but they usually are generic and abstract
descriptions. This book is different because it moves to specificity
and provides concrete steps to overcome a disrupting
episode in our lives.”
—Carlos J. Sanchez, MA, Family Therapist
“A hands-on guide, Bevan leads us through the stages of loss
and mourning, then foster movement towards integration and
the creation of healthy new relationships.”
—Carolyn Crimmins, Psy.D
“This book is succinct and in clear language for the lay
(non-mental health professional) reader to understand. Bevan
has real-life experience in the area of loss and ’rebuilding’ her
life and self-esteem in the face of traumatic experiences such
as being abandoned by a partner.”
—Margaret M. Mustelier, Psy.D.
“An excellent tool to help persons move on after the end of a
relationship. Life After Your Lover Walks Out highlights the common
cognitive distortions and exaggerated emotions and urges
the reader to examine their actions and how they perpetuate
their feeling of loss. Through the use of introspective questions
the book invites the reader to take a journey of self examination
in order to accept the loss and to reengage in life.”
—Ian Landry, MA, MSW, Case Manager
