About the Book

The prevalence of child sexual abuse is difficult to determine because it is often not reported, but its effects are undeniably long-term and severe. In this powerful book, twelve survivors share their stories and the steps they took in their journey towards healing by breaking the silence. Their accounts expose the harsh realities of child sexual abuse and the pain it causes, while offering hope and encouragement to everyone who has been sexually abused as a child – and those who care about them.

Compassionate and sensitively written, Survivors is a useful and inspiring tool for those who have been sexually abused as children. It also equips family, friends and caregivers to help survivors move forward with courage and confidence in their respective healing journeys.
