CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE BOOKS
Below is a small collection of powerful books to aid in the healing from child sexual abuse.
The first book written specifically for male survivors, Victims No Longer examines the changing cultural attitudes toward male survivors of sexual abuse. Victims No Longer helps survivors to:
Identify and validate their childhood experiences
Explore strategies of survival and healing
Work through issues such as trust, intimacy, and sexual confusion
Establish a support network for continued personal recovery
Make choices that aren't determined by abuse
The Courage to Heal is an inspiring, comprehensive guide that offers hope and a map of the healing journey to every woman who was sexually abused as a child—and to those who care about her. Although the effects of child sexual abuse are long-term and severe, healing is possible.
Based on in-depth interviews and her workshops for partners across the country, Laura Davis offers practical advice and encouragement to all partners—girlfriends, boyfriends, spouses, and lovers—trying to support the survivors in their lives while tending to their own needs along the way. She shows couples how to deepen compassion, improve communication, and develop an understanding of healing as a shared activity as well as addressing partners' most important questions.
