This refreshing and wide ranging book is challenging of – and informative for – professionals working in the field of abuse, including domestic, sexual, physical and emotional abuse and the subsequent trauma those can lead to. Rarely do we hear so clearly the voice and experiences of the survivors themselves, both male and female, alongside the voices of the workers in the field. The book addresses the practical and therapeutic needs of survivors, highlighting the creative resources survivors find useful (and the scarcity of them) as well as psychological understandings of the complexity professionals can expect to be dealing with across a range of different settings. Once again Jacki Pritchard has managed to bring together a knowledgeable and experienced group of authors, all with something to add to our view of recovery and healing from abuse concepts that are skilfully woven throughout. This book should be on a list of required reading for all health and social care professionals. –Kim Etherington, Emeritus Professor, Graduate School of Education, University of Bristol, UK and author of several books including Narrative Approaches to Working with Adult Male Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse.
