Lynn Daugherty – Child Molestation Stories: Voices of Survivors

Dr. Lynn Daugherty works with survivors of child molestation, rape, and incest. She shared their stories to let other victims know they are not alone in Why Me? Help for Victims of Child Sexual Abuse (Even if they are adults now). In the extract Voices of Survivors (10,000 words–about 40 pages if it were a paperback), some of the stories of abuse (in the hospital, walking home, in a rest room, at the beach, in my bed, by our neighbor, a family friend, my mother’s boyfriend, my brother,  my stepmother, my daddy) are told. Male and female, young children, still young when they tell their story, or grown up and coming out with their memories as adult. The booklet includes answers to basic questions about child sexual abuse, guidance in selecting a professional counselor, and additional resources to help former victims and their families begin their journey to recovery, both online and offline. I got this book though Librarything‘s Member Giveaway. The truth on child molestation needs to be told, and the people who commit these crimes be stopped or caught. Unfortunately we all can read about child molestation in our newspapers, every single day.
