While the psychotherapeutic world has made significant strides in documenting the treatment of women victims of sexual abuse, little has been written on therapeutic responses to men. This may be understood as being partly due to the reluctance of male survivors to expose their history of abuse to clinical eyes. This may be exacerbated by a particular brand of masculine shame that causes male victims to be even more silenced than female survivors. Based on the author's extensive clinical experience of working with children and adult victims of sexual crime, Psychotherapy with Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse looks at the long history of male sexual abuse, positioning it not simply as a new phenomenon, but one that has a long but undocumented history. Anonymised case studies provide the backdrop for in-depth explorations of various consequences of sexual abuse, including sexual addiction, profound depression, gender dysphoria, eating disorders, self harm, suicidal ideation, and dissociation.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"In this brilliant, carefully researched and highly original book, Corbett has indeed made the invisible visible, and brought out of the shadows those survivors of, at times, unimaginable trauma. All clinicians working with the impact of early abuse, and its ripples across the lifespan, will find this book both a source of wisdom and hope. I found it immensely moving."

- Anna Motz, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust

"In this excellent book, as Alan Corbett embarks on his description of his experiences and understandings of the men he meets for therapy, the reader becomes an integral part of the invisible becoming visible. (...) I cannot praise it highly enough and would urge all practitioners to read it, as it is not only relevant to those working with survivors of male sexual abuse, its utility extends to therapeutic work with men in general."

- Dr K T Pemberton
