About the Author

Dr. Lynn Daugherty has been bringing hope and healing to former victims of child sexual abuse, and to their families, for more than twenty-five years.

Treating children, adolescents, and adults who were victims of sexual abuse was a primary focus of her psychology practice, although she had previously worked extensively with sex offenders as a forensic evaluation team director.

Dr. Daugherty's award-winning bestseller, "Why Me? Help for Victims of Child Sexual Abuse (Even if they are adults now)," is a beginning self-help book for former abuse victims who want to understand more about child sexual abuse and begin changing its effects on their lives. It is available as an ebook and in paperback.

"Voices of Survivors," containing selections from the longer book. These stories let former victims know they are not alone, that others have survived similar experiences of abuse.

"Child Molesters, Child Rapists, and Child Sexual Abuse," helps former victims, and the general public, understand more about how child sexual abuse takes place and what motivates abusers. It reinforces the idea that children are not abused because there is something "wrong" with them, but because there is something "wrong" with the abuser.

"Listening and Talking to Your Sexually Abused Child" helps parents develop a stronger relationship with their son or daughter as they start the journey toward recovery from child molestation, rape, or incest.

A former National Science Foundation Fellow, adjunct university professor, and internationally respected expert on child sexual abuse, Dr. Daugherty and her husband, a retired attorney, now divide their time between New Mexico and Florida where Dr. Daugherty concentrates on her writing.

Her study of psychology began at Middlebury College and continued at the University of Tulsa and the University of Montana. There she completed a Ph.D. and a postdoctoral training program in clinical psychology. She writes for the general public and professional journals.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Necessary Read February 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is full of the first hand accounts of sexual abuse survivors of all ages, both male and female. We like to believe it doesn't happen but we all know it does. The accounts are unbelievable but true. It is incredibly hard to read but well worth it, especially for other survivors so they know that they are not alone. The author also does a wonderful job of describing the emotional reaction that is often exerienced in association with the event(s) later in life, sometimes without the victim even understanding why the reaction occurs. They may have an adverse reaction to a certain smell or touch. Also included is an explanation of the different ways the abused person copes, always making sure it is understood that nothing is the victim's fault whether they report the abuse or not. The main point that comes across loud and clear is that children of sexual abuse can go on to have normal productive and happy lives.

This was the second book I read out of many I've purchased on the subject from the Kindle store. It has taken me year to read about other victims after my own experience. The author briefly touches upon many of her patients trauma as sexually abused victims. I think it's worth the read, though many of the stories did not reflect my own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eye opening February 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I found this ebook to be very powerful. I was a little apprehensive about reading it because of my own past experiences with abuse, but reading all the stories somehow, made me feel less alone. I haven't really heard many stories of others being abused sexually, I think that people do not like to talk about it. I recommend this book to everyone, abused or not. There is a questions and answers section that really made me realize just how many children are abused and what the difference between abuse and children simply exploring their own bodies. I am so glad that I requested this book through LibraryThing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Short stories, needed something more March 23, 2013
Format:Paperback
I'm a sexual abuse survivor, so I read a lot of books on the topic.

This book shares brief stories. I think it needed more. I'd recommend it for anyone who is just beginning to talk about her abuse. At some point, it's helpful to hear a woman's entire story. How can past abuse effect your entire life? What happens when abuse is paired with bullying or the like?

I'd pair this book with another book entitled Embracing My Father's Shadow: Beauty from the Ruins of Sexual Abuse Embracing My Father's Shadow: Beauty from the Ruins of Sexual Abuse. This book is by a woman who shares her entire story--what it was like growing up, how she acted out, her journey towards healing. It was great to get the whole picture.

There aren't many books like Embracing My Father's Shadow out there. Read it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Let these voices be heard March 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Dr. Lynn Daugherty works with survivors of child molestation, rape, and incest. She shared their stories to let other victims know they are not alone in Why Me? Help for Victims of Child Sexual Abuse (Even if they are adults now). In the extract Voices of Survivors (10,000 words-about 40 pages if it were a paperback), some of the stories of abuse (in the hospital, walking home, in a rest room, at the beach, in my bed, by our neighbor, a family friend, my mother's boyfriend, my brother, my stepmother, my daddy) are told. Male and female, young children, still young when they tell their story, or grown up and coming out with their memories as adult. The booklet includes answers to basic questions about child sexual abuse, guidance in selecting a professional counselor, and additional resources to help former victims and their families begin their journey to recovery, both online and offline. I got this book though Librarything`s Member Giveaway. The truth on child molestation needs to be told, and the people who commit these crimes be stopped or caught. Unfortunately we all can read about child molestation in our newspapers, every single day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impactful February 6, 2012
By E-chan
Format:Kindle Edition
When I saw this book on the LibraryThing giveaway, I thought, hmm... this looks interesting. And well, I need non-fiction. But this short book, consisting mostly of real-life accounts of victims of sexual abuse, makes a very big impact.

While I'm not the intended audience of the book, as it's a book aimed at the sexually abused, it reminded me of not gossiping. More than one account mentioned how they didn't want people to know, and how they felt that people were talking behind their back. I think, if I ever find out that someone I know undergoes something so terrible, I should remember not to gossip, but rather, support them.

The book is divided into three sections: stories from victims of child sexual abuse, questions and answers about child sexual abuse amd choosing a professional counselor. To me, the most interesting sections were the first two, and I glossed over the last section.

This book is taken from a longer work, but is standalone. I think that we should be aware of such things, even though I myself would rather not know about such realities. But since it exists, we cannot be ostriches. I suggest that if you do not want to read a long work about sexual abuse, you should at least read this book.

Disclaimer: I got this book free from the LibraryThing giveaway in exchange for my free and honest review.

1.0 out of 5 stars Less than remarkable
Less than 20 "paragraphs" not actual stories. Seems like joted notes from a shrink asking a patient to describe what happened. Didn't rivet me in any way.

More About the Author

Dr. Lynn Daugherty has been bringing hope and healing to former victims of child sexual abuse, and to their families, for more than twenty-five years.

Treating children, adolescents, and adults who were victims of molestation, rape, and incest was the primary focus of Dr. Daugherty's New Mexico psychology practice, although she had previously worked extensively with sex offenders as director of a forensic evaluation team.

Dr. Daugherty wrote her award-winning bestseller, "Why Me? Help for Victims of Child Sexual Abuse (Even if they are adults now)," as a beginning self-help book for former abuse victims who want to understand more about child sexual abuse and begin changing its effects on their lives. It, like all her books, is available as an ebook and in paperback.

"Voices of Survivors," containing selections from the longer book, presents stories of former victims, along with other basic information about child sexual abuse. These stories form an especially powerful part of the self-help book. They let former victims know they are not alone, that others have survived similar experiences of abuse.

Dr. Daugherty wrote "Child Molesters, Child Rapists, and Child Sexual Abuse," to help former victims, and the general public, understand more about how child sexual abuse takes place and what motivates abusers. It reinforces the idea that children are not abused because there is something "wrong" with them, but because there is something "wrong" with the abuser.

Dr. Daugherty's most recent book, "Listening and Talking to Your Sexually Abused Child," helps parents improve their communication skills to strengthen their relationship with their son or daughter as they begin their journey to recovery from child molestation, rape, or incest.

A former National Science Foundation Fellow, adjunct university professor, and internationally respected expert on child sexual abuse, Dr. Daugherty and her husband, a retired attorney, now divide their time between New Mexico and Florida where Dr. Daugherty concentrates on her writing.

Lynn Daugherty's study of psychology began at Middlebury College in Vermont and continued at the University of Tulsa and the University of Montana.
