Understanding and Treating Women's Childhood Sexual Abuse
"The most practical, down to earth, thoughtful, and sensitive book written on women's childhood sexual abuse."—Samuel C. Klagsbrun, MD
From the psychotherapist who offered groundbreaking work on self-mutilation (Cutting) comes a landmark examination of the psychology of sexual abuse. Stolen Tomorrows encourages the 20 percent of women who have been abused to think about, talk about, and seek help for what has been their secret shame. In addition to giving therapists and other helpers an empathic insight, Stolen Tomorrows will enable the survivor to recognize herself in both her personal history and her current struggle to overcome the legacy of abuse.
