Description

 
By Aphrodite Matsakis, Ph.D.
 
A woman is raped in this country every two minutes. This guide provides an effective framework for victims to heal from the experience.
 
Victims of rape often suffer from symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In this handbook, an expert in the treatment of PTSD helps rape victims cope with the reality of the experience and deal with the aftermath of conflicting and debilitating feelings.
 
Recovery begins by establishing a safety plan that includes what to expect from recovery and an understanding of how to treat yourself during recovery:
  • Develop a community and supportive network to assist you during the journey.
  • Learn to cope with the anxiety and anger that often arise during this process.
  • Understand how sexual assault can affect many aspects of life.
The book also shatters myths about sexual assault and examine how the experience can change relationships.
 
The final part of the book facilitates the mental reconstruction of the assault to diffuse its emotional power. Readers will be able to counter irrational beliefs, find inner reserves of strength and energy, and regain personal power.
 
200 pages. Softcover. 2003.
