"In her latest book, the" Rape Recovery Handbook", Matsakis has again demonstrated a unique level of compassion and concern for rape victims and their capacity for healing. While guiding her reader gently through numerous exercises specially designed for maximum effect, Dr. Matsakis provides illumination into thought processes that often trap victims into believing that they are beyond hope. Gentle, empathetic advice, along with a sincere belief that rape victims can restore their self-esteem and become rap survivors living full, joyful lives, make this book indispensable to both victim and therapist alike!" --Teresa Lauer, MA, RapeRecovery.com

Insightful, empowering and enabling to both rape/abuse victims and those
working with them in support services.
The book uses a cognitive behavioural approach which requires a lot of reflective thinking and writing so it will not suit those who don't like articulating their thoughts & feelings on paper. However if you are methodical and want to understand this subject from the rape survivors angle or want to get over any abuse experience yourself then this book is a must!
The book is also good for friends and family to read, so that they understand how the person is feeling, etc.
