father, or other important caregivers can register on our bodies, minds, and
spirits as threats to life itself. In a word, as ‘trauma.’” 


If you’ve been baffled
by the sufferings caused by this silent trauma,
you now have a healing guidebook
written just for you.  


Maybe you experienced
naCCTs such as: 

  • Emotional, social, and/or
    psychological neglect. 
  • Gaslighting and reality
  • “No Hugs, No Cuddles”
  • Traumatic absence of loving
    guidance, interest, or understanding, 
  • Physically present, (even
    over-involved, over-controlling, and intrusive), but psychologically
    unattuned (“helicopter”) parenting, 
  • Being used as a parent to
    your own parent, a trophy child, or a “stand-in spouse,” or even

 Whether or not your
caregiver was concerned and well-intentioned, whether or not you also

these intangible early naCCTs can cause complex PTSD, leaving you as an adult
to cope
struggling with physical, psychological, financial, and
relationship problems and overall lack of fun, spontaneity, and meaning. 



In this life-changing book
devoted to healing the hidden wounds from these early traumas,
author Ricia Fleming, therapist and naCCT survivor herself, will:

  • reassure you that your
    troubles and stuckness make sense;  
  • validate that your
    challenges are mountains, not molehills; and 
  • guide you to replace
    frustration, confusion, and resignation with a new level of empowerme
    nt and self-cherishing that you can tap into 24/7. 

To help you start healing today, “No Sticks
or Stones No Broken Bones” will give you:


  • Down-to-earth survivor
    stories you can relate to,  
  • Strategies for identifying,
    handling, and de-activating subtle People-Triggers, painful Body-State
    Triggers,  and hard-to-recognize naCCT flashbacks, 
  • Practical guidance and
    non-pathologizing support grounded in neurobiological trauma research,
  • A toolkit of empowering information,
    actionable strategies, checklists, exercises, and self-talk scripts 


It will help you take pride in how well you have
