The prevalence of child sexual abuse among women survivors is well documented. The incidence of sexual abuse of boys remains less documented although a recent study estimates that boys are at five times greater risk of sexual abuse out of the home than their female counterparts. In the last three years male survivors have begun to network informally and secrecy is once again being broken.
This groundbreaking book, written by a male survivor, makes explicit the isolation and stigmatization of male survivors and discusses the fear and conflict of disclosure. Men and women survivors share many common concerns such as guilt, isolation, sham and low self-esteem. In addition, the issues unique to male survivors are discussed in a candid and sensitive manner. Focus is maintained on hope and recovery through a 12-Step model of spiritual and emotional growth and development.
