Sample text

According to the Centers for Disease Control (2005) about 8 percent of high-school students and about 25 percent of college-aged women were sexually abused, with an overall lifetime rate of one in six women and one in about thirty men having been sexually abused. Seventy-three percent of those who were sexually abused know their assailant but only about 60 percent of assaults are reported. Nearly 80 percent of those found to abuse children were parents, another seven percent were other relatives and according to the CDC, in the case of sexual abuse, parents were the perpetrators almost 90 percent of the time.

In going through my records, I found that in the fifteen years since, there were over 100 other individuals who made it to my professional office for help in coping with the abuse and violence that they had suffered through. There are many reasons why I did not undertake the project fifteen years earlier, but perhaps among the most salient were three: that I somehow knew that I would benefit from more clinical practice and skill, that the community was not quite yet willing to believe that abuse existed and would not be willing to engage in an open discussion of the topic and that enhancing my writing experience would be beneficial and advantageous especially in light of this resistance.

Some will see it as a personal attack and a wrongful accusation. If, however, this book succeeds in shining just one candle on the subject to help prevent the hurt, get help for those who have been hurt and to help us all better understand this topic, then it will have been all worthwhile. I have taken a contrarian approach at points not to be accused as someone who is not a believer. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a believer. I take certain positions in this book and in life because the landscape of the abuse issue is so misunderstood; so many people have been hurt and continue to be hurt that it is time to confront some of the dogma in a realistic, coherent but above all, honest and direct fashion.
