Summary

The complete basis for understanding sexual abuse.

Since it is all over the media and the horrific stories echo through our empathetic ears, it is almost mandatory for any caring civilian in society to understand at least some basics when it comes to sexual abuse. The facts are out there, and it is really happening to people in secret and sometimes without hiding anything. In this book, you will learn to grasp the reality of this sad phenomenon in society. You will hear such things as:

  • Which acts fall under "sexual abuse" and how they violate a person's right to consent with such acts.
  • How sexual abuse can have a negative impact on a person's self-esteem, sexuality, and relationships.
  • Legal facts and opinions about reporting sexual abuse.
  • The problems with recognizing and acknowledging moments when it might be happening, and why it sometimes goes on for such a long time.
  • Effective ways to accelerate the healing process.
  • Things you can do to help yourself and others.

Curious yet? Then don't wait and start listening. I will see you in the first chapter!

Break the silence.

Sexual Abuse: Healing from Childhood Trauma and Adulthood Trouble by Mandy Whomack striked me straight passed my heart.You will never understand how terrifying to be caught in that situation if you haven't been through it in the past. This book speaks concerning a delicate topic which not all of us may find comfortable to speak about. The author made his points clear and shallow. Simplistic enough for us to cope up. Within each victim there lies an untold story, reading this book will not only help the victims overcome fear and eventually heal. Morever, they will realize dwelling in the past won't make their futures any better.

Encouraging message.

I thought this was a brilliant book. It's not easy to recuperate if you've been traumatized when you were younger. Particularly when the person who maltreated you ought to have been the last person to the that to you. It's a long, troublesome road to walk through and i can feel how the sympathizing the author of the book is.The book shed some light and words of uplifting that made me feel whole and better again.

Highly recommend

Essayist Mandy Whomack is a truly incredible author . I did two or three the activities toward the start, and I'm as of now seeing a distinction by they way I feel. Much obliged to you! Up until this point, I exceedingly prescribe this book to any individual who has been through this sort of injury. I can hardly wait to continue going to do alternate things in the book, on the off chance that I as of now feel better after only a couple of things.

IT IS A GOOD BOOK !!!

Writer Mandy Whomack is a really great writer . I did a couple of the exercises at the beginning, and I'm already noticing a difference in how I feel. Thank you! So far, I highly recommend this book to anyone who has been through this type of trauma. I can't wait to keep going to do the other things in the book, if I already feel better after just a few things.

Overly Simplified, Outdated and Inaccuracies

There seems to be a lack of current research to back some of her assertions. It's overly simplified and at times problematic. There are so many great books out there on trauma and sexual abuse, and this is not one of them. I feel like it was far too short to even begin to cover the complexities of childhood trauma.
