MEDIA REVIEWS

This guide will provide an outstanding resource to support all of those who work in this field.
It is well written by someone who has a profound knowledge and understanding of this subject and sensitively details, real case studies, clarity on rape, power and control, consequences and how to support. The author Sue Daniels, is credible and demonstrates a passion and commitment to making a difference in the sphere of all forms of abuse. An essential read.

-- Cheryl George, Consultant in Public Health
Ms. Daniels admirably disseminates good, hands-on information for professionals of any discipline whose work intersects with male and female survivors of sexual assault. This book is an excellent guide for ensuring the most therapeutic outcomes for survivors, and not doing the further harms that have sometimes been the product of ignorance. -- Louise McOrmond-Plummer, Intimate partner sexual violence author and specialist, Australia
I think Sue has done a great service producing this well researched book on such a grim subject. She describes the many forms of abusive behaviour and the symptoms they produce with great clarity and compassion. It will help many who struggle to heal the tortured souls of victims. -- Ivan Tyrrell, Director of Human Givens College and co-author of Human Givens: A new approach to emotional Health and Clear Thinking
