Breaking Free: Help For Survivors Of Child Sexual Abuse
 

About the eBook

'This book will be enormously helpful to those who have endured sexual abuse' Nursing Times

This classic book has helped many thousands of people to manage the impact that childhood sexual abuse has had on their lives. The positive and optimistic approach continues to empower survivors to break free from the past.

Now with signficantly updated resource and further help sections, this latest edition by clinical psychologist Kay Toon acknowledges the types of abuse that have come to light more recently, such as street exploitation, and abuse by celebrities, politicians and football coaches, as well as the use of digital technology to groom children and young people.

Breaking Free is regularly recommended by counsellors, by media agony aunts and psychotherapists. A Department of Health project provided copies of Breaking Free and the Breaking Free Workbook to NHS Mental Health Provider Trusts. It is ideal both for those seeking therapeutic support and for those providing such support.

'The voice of the cowed, betrayed and helpless sexually abused child speaks powerfully throughout this book.'
British Journal of Psychiatry

'The way the book instils hope is inspiring'
Journal of Social Work Practice
