    Excellent Book!, March 14, 2012

    As a victim of abuse this is not an easy book to read but at the same time it’s helpful to read. The author does a very good job of describing the different type of abusers. In my case it helped me to understand something more about my own abuser and the sickness behind it.

    Dr. Lynn Daughtery explains, of course, that in each case it is NEVER the victims fault no matter how sick the attacker is! This is important for every victim to understand. I DO think it helps in the healing process to understand something about the attacker as well. Most people just want to see them castrated and locked away forever! An understandable thought and one I can relate to. There IS help and treatment for them though and personally speaking I would have liked to have seen my attacker get help if possible, however he passed away several years ago.

    The author talks about how abuse affects the whole family and how to go about getting help. This is an extremely emotional topic and can be very disruptive for the entire family. It can also be a time for the family to pull together, seek help and stand united in support of the victim. If the abuser is part of the family that can certainly make it more difficult but there is help out there and the author lists several resources in her book.

    If you are a victim, abuser or love someone who is, then this is an excellent book to read. It’s not overly long and it’s not weighted down with technical language that’s hard to understand. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is struggling in this area!

    This book attempts to explain why and how sex offenders abuse children. It is written in a question and answer format, which seems particularly directed towards a younger audience. It includes descriptions of particular behaviors and characteristics and then often has a story written in the child molesters own words. It could also be used by a counselor or therapist to help a younger child understand why something bad happened to them. It emphasizes that it is not the child’s fault, which I think is a very important message. Overall, I thought this was a great book, for a younger audience. Older teenagers and adults may find the language used a bit simplistic.

    This review is from: Child Molesters, Child Rapists, and Child Sexual Abuse: Why and How Sex Offenders Abuse: Child Molestation, Rape, and Incest Stories, Studies, and Models (Paperback)

    Unfortunately, this book is very, very general and the information found in the book can easily be access for free on the net. If you are a parent and do not know much about this topic and hate to go on the internet, then, this book is for you.
