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

VICTIMS NO LONGER played a huge role in my beginning to understand and accept for the first time that what was done to me as a child was abuse and was incredibly wrong. In the stories, symptoms, behaviors and thought patterns of the male survivors that fill these pages, I unexpectedly and reluctantly saw myself, over and over again. This became and remains an invaluable source of education and healing for me and speaks compellingly to the particular familial and societal challenges the male child abuse survivor faces. For male survivors of child sexual abuse, as well as their loved ones who are trying to understand and support them, I highly recommend this book.

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.

To have a support system along the healing journey is quite helpful, yet the effects of Child Sexual Abuse are quite challenging to understand for the survivor and often even more so for people who are not survivors themselves. If you want to support someone who is struggling and healing from child sexual abuse, this can be a really helpful read.
