About The Author
Lundy Bancroft has spent the last thirty years of his career specializing in abuse, trauma, and recovery. He is the author of Why Does He Do That?, the largest-selling book in history on domestic violence, and his professional book The Batterer as Parent won the 2005 literary award from the North American Resource Center for Child Welfare. His latest book, The Joyous Recovery, is his first for a general audience, gathering into one volume his 30 years of experience and wisdom regarding emotional healing. Lundy was a counselor for abusive men for over a decade, and then devoted himself to taking what he had learned from that experience and sharing it with abused women, and with the friends, family, and professionals who assist them. Lundy is the creator of the Peak Living Network, a free support system for anyone healing from emotional wounds — in other words, for everyone.
