Editorial Reviews

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

"As therapists, survivors, allies, or simply caring humans, it is essential to contradict deconstructive ideas; we must searh for message that reflect the reality of human strength, caring, resilience, courage, creativity and love. I'm not suggesting denial; we cannot ignore grim realities of life. But there is far more human existence than unhappiness. The world is richly beautiful, infinitely diverse--and so are we."

Format: Paperback
As a survivor and psychotherapist who works with male survivors, I am both thrilled and grateful to Mike for providing us with such a wonderful resource. Leaping Upon the Mountains fills an important gap in that it is the first work I have seen that provides hope to survivors that a higher quality of life is possible. It also offers a general pathway for how to attain it. Mike rightly points out that it is not enough to describe the painful difficulties experienced by survivors; it is also essential to focus on how we deal with the pain. I am proud to be a contributor to Leaping Upon the Mountains and routinely refer my patients to this work. I highly recommend it to all male survivors and supporters.

Format: Paperback
Once again, Michael Lew has provided male sexual abuse victims a very valuable and supportive book. Unlike his first book, Victims No Longer, which became a classic in describing the trauma and healing from male childhood sexual abuse in adulthood, this book provides results of questions posed by the author to abuse survivors. The author simply asks survivors how they managed their difficult road(s) to recovery - what worked and why. Divided into 3 sections dealing with early, middle and late recovery, the survivors provide a creative and empowering list of strategies. The author, in his thoughtful, caring style, comments on and supports these strategies. The end of the book is terrific!: survivors offer words of wisdom and encouragement for those embarking on this difficult and painful journey. If you need a biblio-support group at your finger-tips, these men will not let you down! I personally believe the author's work has saved many lives and this book will save many more. Read it and recover!

Leaping Upon the Mountians, gave me many ways to look at how men who were abused as children see things. Being in a relationship with a survivor, is hard. Trying to see see things from their perspective is not always easy. This book helps me see how to look at it.

Format: Paperback
This book is a "must" for male victims of childhood sexual abuse, and for those who are partners of males who were abused as children. Most the text is a compilation of information, stories, recovery techniques, insights, etc. garnered from adult males who were sexually abused as children. If you have read Mr. Lew's first Book, VICTIMS NO LONGER, you should read this one too. Recovery from the trauma of childhood sexual abuse can, and does happen, and LEAPING UPON THE MOUNTAINS is full of encouraging messages to assist in the recovery process.

This is much different than his first book - a collection of things that survivors in recovery have found useful or helpful in their recovery. I would recommend it as a complement to Victims no Longer.

More About the Author

About Mike Lew

Mike Lew, M.Ed., a counselor in Western Massachusetts, is director of The Next Step Counseling and Training Center.

Mike is a leading expert on recovery from sexual child abuse, particularly issues of male survivors.

Mike Lew has worked with thousands of men and women in their healing from the effects of sexual child abuse, rape, physical violence, emotional abuse and neglect. The development of strategies for recovery from incest and other abuse, especially for men, has been a major focus of his work as a counselor and group leader.

He conducts public lectures, workshops for survivors, and training and consultation for mental health, medical, human service, clergy, law enforcement, and other professionals throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, and Africa.

His publications include Victims No Longer: The Classic Guide for Men Recovering from Sexual Child Abuse (Second Edition, Revised and Updated, Quill, 2004). The first book written specifically for men recovering from boyhood sexual abuse, Victims No Longer continues to earn praise for both its clinical expertise and compassionate tone, educating survivors and professionals about the recovery process, speaking to the pain, needs, fears, and hopes of the adult male survivor.

Leaping upon the Mountains: Men Declaring Victory over Sexual Child Abuse (2000, North Atlantic Books and Small Wonder Books), continues to explore and proclaim the reality of recovery. In this second work, Mike Lew presents the triumphs of hundreds of male survivors from over forty countries, providing hope and resources for survivors in each stage of their healing.
