A poetic masterpiece that is both tragic and empowering!
By Dr Nicola Davies
'Beyond Survivor' was written by a truly inspiring man, a man who went through painful experience after painful experience by the people who should have been protecting him. Yet, through this pain has emerged a a compassionate, intelligent, articulate, talented, and amazing human being who has risen from the ashes of CSA to share his story with others. The honesty and raw emotion within this selection of writings is both tragic and empowering and a must read for CSA survivors, professionals working with CSA survivors, and anyone wanting insight into the trauma caused by CSA. Jan Frayne has not only broken the silence often surrounding CSA, but he has also taken a huge step for the many men who have endured pain and suffering at the hands of people who should have known better. While male CSA is gaining more recognition, it still has a huge way to go - and Jan Frayne is surely assisting with this through his courageous writings. Being asked to provide the foreward to this poetic masterpiece is one of the biggest honours I have ever received. I now look forward to seeing the book go on to help and inspire many more people to not only survive CSA, but to thrive!
