Editorial Reviews


"Sexual Abuse of Males: The SAM Model of Theory and Practice is a major addition to the literature on the abuse of males and a breakthrough in understanding the complexity of its aftermath. Dr. Spiegel notes that sexual abuse professionals are in a unique position to tell the truth and, with this book, it is clear that he is taking a leadership role in doing so. This book has much to offer, and I recommend it to therapists and male survivors alike." - From the Foreword by Christine Courtois,Ph.D., author, Recollections of Sexual Abuse: Treatment Principles and Guidelines

"This book is the most thorough and complete presentation and discussion of sexual abuse of males (SAM). It is an essential reading for all practitioners because the percentage of patients who have suffered sexual abuse is much higher than most realize. This book is also useful for those who assess and treat female victims. It is a gem for those of us who assess these victims and suggest treatment. This book is easy to understand and to read." -Harvey Armstrong, Book Review, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Canada Journal Psychiatry, Vol 51, No 4, April 2006

Format: Hardcover
"Sexual Abuse of Males: The SAM Model of Theory & Practice", is a book unlike any others on this emerging, sensitive, and complex subject. Although it is primarily written for a professional audience (clinicians and researchers), it is nevertheless a tremendous resource for anyone interested in the subject-including survivors of sexual abuse. Responding to the relative lack of both public and professional knowledge regarding the childhood sexual abuse of males-the recent scandals of Catholic priests' abuse of males not withstanding, this 2003 published book accomplishes, in my view 5 main objectives: 1) Identifies and addresses the societal and professional lack of knowledge, misinformation, bias, myths & erroneous assumptions, and widespread stereotyping concerning sexually abused males, 2)Briefly describes, refers to, and otherwise pulls together many of the more than 500 research reports he cites in a remarkably clear and efficient manner, 3)Outlines the major psychological, emotional, biological, social,
individual, and behavioral short and long-term effects often resulting from this trauma, 4) Briefly discusses some of the major conceptual models regarding sexual abuse of males-arguing for the necessity of a specific model that is not embedded in the models based upon female sexual abuse, and 5) Presents an extremely comprehensive, specific, and well-researched model specific to the unique treatment needs of the male sexual abuse survivor. Lastly, and most importantly the depth and breadth, the thoroughness, and professional care with which this resource has been assembled is both a testament to the author's professional diligence and care regarding this important societal issue, as much as it is a statement of understanding and empathy for survivors, and consequently an invitation for society in general and professionals in particular to open up the pathways of healing, resilience, and hope for male sexual abuse survivors everywhere.
