But they are not alone.
The Survivor's Guide is for every one who is affected by abuse issues whether a survivor themselves, a friend, relative, health professional or counsellor. It offers helpful and friendly advice that can be used in everyday situations to encourage survivors to work through the emotions that they feel and to develop a wonderful vision for themselves of the person they want to be and the life they want to live - not just making do with surviving.
This book features a collection of unique illustrations to portray the stories of survivors of rape or sexual abuse in easy-to-read chapters.
Funded purely by goodwill and donations, The Survivors Guide is the result of an ambitious campaign by a team of volunteers at UK support group RoSA (Rape or Sexual Abuse Project) who were frustrated by the lack of self-help literature for abuse victims worldwide.
It was written and produced with the backing of professional womens organisation Soroptimist International of Rugby, UK, who fundraised tirelessly for a year to get the project off the ground.
