MEDIA REVIEWS

"I strongly recommend this book to clinicians and physicians as well as other professionals who are seeking an in-depth understanding of the clinical presentation of female adult incest survivors."-- "Resource Reviews, Gregory J. Murrey, MS, Department of Psychology, Washington State University"


"This is a disciplined and passionate book about a grubby little subject that nobody likes. Maybe it was okay to nod tolerantly and dismiss incest when we were taught that it 'happened' in fewer than one in a million families. But there is no taboo against incest--there is only a taboo against talking about it.... The editor, Richard P. Kluft, has devoted his career to the study and treatment of those among us who have been the most damaged by actual psychic trauma. Around him has been assembled a group of talented and dedicated clinicians/scientists whose work now requires us to look for evidence of incest with an urgency directly in proportion to the amount of chaos in our cases."-- "Donald L. Nathanson, M.D., The Institute of Pennsylvania Hospital, Editor, The Many Faces of Shame"
