2 Reviews
This self-help book is for both male and female adult survivors of child sexual abuse. The book examines the effects of abuse, such as depression, low self-esteem, eating disorders (which affect 50% of female survivors) and fear of sexual relationships. It addresses questions survivors often ask, such as Why Me? and Why Didn't I Tell?, the issues of self-blame and guilt and the often conflicting feelings survivors have towards their abusers. Exercises encourage the reader to face up to buried feelings, seek help, and to link early traumatic experiences with problems reoccurring in his or her life as an adult. The book shows that it is possible to overcome problems.
