“In her latest book, the Rape Recovery Handbook, Matsakis has again demonstrated a unique level of compassion and concern for rape victims and their capacity for healing. While guiding her reader gently through numerous exercises specially designed for maximum effect, Dr. Matsakis provides illumination into thought processes that often trap victims into believing that they are beyond hope. Gentle, empathetic advice, along with a sincere belief that rape victims can restore their self-esteem and become rap survivors living full, joyful lives, make this book indispensable to both victim and therapist alike!”

I worked through it in detail while also receiving quality counselling.
I am using this book in conjunction with therapy, and highly recommend that you have a therapist or someone you can talk to while you work through this book.
I was off to a rough start, but after reading this book I finished my paper immediately.

Just hate that I had to buy it and I hate that I have to write seventeen words about it. This new thing is stupid. Made me angry and led to a bad review.Published 22 months ago by Annoyed
This book is a little hard to get through, just because of the content and the exercises. However, it's an amazing recovery tool and companion. Read morePublished 24 months ago by Amber Marie

This is a great book for anyone trying to recover from Rape or any trauma. It is a lot of writing exercises but well worth it.Published on August 2, 2012 by MS.NORY
Not a bad read but not much information and I personally didn't like the presentation. No informtion that is not in other books on same topic.Published on June 15, 2012 by sjl
I think this is for someone who is further along in the healing process. I found this book to be more hurtful than helpful.Published on February 3, 2011 by Jennifer
