Who Dares Wins is the most helpful book on ritual abuse I have read. It gives good practical information which will be useful to anyone who is involved in supporting survivors of ritual abuse. It doesn't scaremonger, but instead concentrates on helping the reader to understand what ritual abuse is about for the survivor,and what is helpful for supporters of r.a. survivors to keep in mind.The book ends with this really brilliant chapter called 'An RA survivor's perspective' which says everything there is to say about why we should believe and support survivors of ritual abuse.

5.0 out of 5 stars A survivors view of Who Dares Wins 15 Oct 2003
Who is the author: Laurie Matthew works at the Young Women’s Centre in Dundee as well as being the founder of the Ritual Abuse Network of Scotland. She has many years experience of working with and supporting survivors or ritual abuse.
Who is the book primarily aimed at: The book states that it “is aimed primarily at workers who may come into contact with survivors, in rape crisis centres, Women’s Aid and other voluntary organisations”. But is also suited to workers in statutory organisations.
Key topics and areas covered in book: In this book we are introduced to ritual abuse at the outset with both definitions of the abuse and an introduction to the workings of ritual abuse. We are then introduced to the effect society has on ritual abuse before getting onto a chapter about workers and agencies and survivors both discussing working effectively with survivors and how best to support them. We are then told about many of the different aspects and key features of ritual abuse. There is also a well-written chapter on child survivors followed by an introduction to multiplicity and working with multiples. To conclude the book there are a number of handouts that can be used when working with survivors.
How I view the book as a survivor: I read this book fairly early on in my recovery and as such found it quite triggering although actual details of what abusers do are kept fairly brief. I found the handouts at the back of the book brilliant. They contained the information on surviving I needed in a very basic and easy to understand way. The book was written throughout in a way that provided me as a survivor with hope and keeps returning to the strength we as survivors have.

I found this book very easy to read and extremely informative. I work with young survivors and have used this book as a discussion tool with cients. I understand from the author that she is working on a second book and look forward to reading it.

I found this book informative and useful. I liked the way it was written as it was easy to read but full of very helpful facts. It is a good resource both for survivors of abuse and for workers who are trying to help them.
