Book Description:

The classic self-help book on child sexual abuse

From the Back Cover:

If you have been sexually abused you are not alone. One out of three girls, and one out of seven boys, is sexually abused by the age of eighteen. All sexual abuse is damaging and the trauma does not end when the abuse stops.

The Courage to Heal offers hope, encouragement and practical advice to every woman who was sexually abused as a child and answers some vital questions, including:

-How do I know if I was a victim of child sexual abuse?

-Where does the decision to heal start?

-How can I break the silence and who will listen?

-How can I re-build my self-esteem, intimacy and capacity to love?

-What therapy, support groups, self-help programmes or organisations are available?

Based on the experiences of hundreds of survivors and partners, The Courage to Heal profiles victims who share the challenges and triumphs of their personal healing processes. Inspiring and comprehensive, it offers mental, emotional and physical support to all those who are in the process of rebuilding their lives.
