ABSTRACT

Any teenage boy who discloses sexual abuse is facing an emotional ordeal. However, the workbook We Are Not Alone: A Teenage Boy’s Personal Account of Child Sexual Abuse from Disclosure Through Prosecution and Treatment can help him understand and endure the process. As it tells the first-person story of Joe, whose neighbor molested him, it offers an opportunity to discuss emotional issues, learn the facts of the process, and gain the sense of solidarity and support so crucial to the recovery of abused children. This helpful book deals with gender-specific issues as well as the universal problems of any sexually traumatized teenager. We Are Not Alone: A Guidebook for Helping Professionals and Parents Supporting Adolescent Victims of Sexual Abuse is also available as a companion volume for therapists, teachers, legal and law enforcement professionals, and parents of the victim.
