9780030640018: Recovering from Rape: Practical Advice on Overcoming the Trauma and Coping with Police, Hospitals and Court - For Survivors of Sexual Assault and for Their Families, Lovers and Friends
From School Library Journal:

YA A comprehensive, unemotional and honest presentation of how to deal with the aftermath of a rape. The book is addressed to the rape victim and the significant others in her life. Ledray, a registered nurse on the staff of a sexual assault center, provides clear, detailed information on all aspects of rape: dealing with the police, obtaining medical care, counseling and what to expect from the legal system. The emotional responses normal to a rape victim and those close to her are discussed extensively, and this section should be of great help to anyone in this situation. Since Ledray feels that rape is sociocultural in origin and therefore not likely to be eradicated, she provides practical strategies for self-protection and prevention. A state-by-state list of rape crisis centers is included. Marlene M. Kuhl, Baltimore County Public Library

From Library Journal:

Based on the author's experience at the Sexual Assault Resource Service in Minneapolis, Recovering from Rape is a handbook for both rape victims and the "significant others" in their lives. Major areas discussed include the myths surrounding rape and why they continue; police, medical personnel, security precautions, and rape crisis centers; post-rape trauma; recovery; child sexual assault; the legal system; and the rapist. Although there are many books on rape, the unique aspect of Ledray's book is the depth and breadth of material written expressly for the victim's friends and family dealing with their beliefs, actions, and fears. Included is a list of rape crisis centers in the United States. Highly recommended. Frada L. Mozenter, Univ. of North Carolina at Charlotte Lib.
