‘As a child, home was where the hurt was’
‘As an adult, it still hurts deep inside where I can’t reach the pain.’
The author understands from personal experience what it means to be a victim of child sexual abuse. As an Abuse Consultant, she worked with victims and paedophiles to understand the subject as a whole.
Child sexual abuse is a crime. It happens to people of all ages, in all walks of life, and yet remains a forbidden secret, with victim and abuser leading hidden lives.
This book is made up of many voices – victims sharing for the first time how abuse affects every aspect of life; and paedophiles answering the victim’s eternal question: ‘Why me?’
‘She led me on, saying goodnight in her nightie …’
‘It’s like a box of chocolates … once you’ve had one you want more, but different …‘
If we are to stop the flow of victims, it is vital we go to source to understand what is going on in the minds of paedophiles and how to effect change for the future.
This book offers guidance in an easy-to-read format for all victims of child sexual abuse and those who support them.
