Bass and Davis, coauthors of The Courage To Heal: A Guide for Women Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse ( LJ 5/15/88), offer a compact, easy-to-read, self-help guide for the sexually abused. The authors attempt to condense and simplify the information in their previous work to make it more accessible to younger readers, new adult readers, and those who need information to facilitate recovery. Emphasizing that healing is possible, the authors identify the stages of healing, including denial, remembering, talking about the abuse, anger, spirituality, forgiveness, and moving on to a healthier life. Case histories are presented throughout, along with simple, common-sense advice on how to handle each phase of recovery.
