Format: Hardcover
As the survivor of over 15 years of sibling sexual abuse, this book was a godsend. For the first time, sibling incest was legitimized and shown to be just as damaging, if not more so, than parent/child incest. Very supportive and helpful.

This book is a compendium of scholarly factual information rendered sensitively by someone who knows the truth about sibling abuse, both assault and incest. I highly recommend it to anyone seeking information about the subject, and especially for those seeking validation of their experiences, which is hard to come by in families affected by abuse or from peers who discount it.

Format: Paperback
I first found out about this important book on sibling abuse at the Uniformed Services Social Work Conference held in Orlando, Florida in November 1991. The author, Dr. Vernon Wiehe, a professor at the University of Kentucky and a prior director of counseling services for Lutheran Social Services in St. Louis, Missouri, presented a workshop which was not only useful to me as a social work professional but touched me on a very personal level having myself been the victim of physical abuse at the hands of my younger brother. I purchased a copy of the first edition of the book, published in 1990, at this same conference.

A great deal of research was put into this book written, as the author explains in Chapter 1 An Undetected Problem "with several audiences in mind. Primarily...directed to professionals working in the field of domestic violence and to students preparing to become professionals in that field." He does admit, however, that "although the book is not specifically directed to them for the most part, victims of sibling abuse may be interested in reading this book." Dr. Wiehe was indeed sincere when he hoped that the book "will help victims realize that they are not alone, that the nightmares of their childhood is not their fault." I was not a child when the abuse that happened to me peaked: 28, a Navy veteran, just having gotten out of the service, at the hands of a 26-year-old architecture graduate student brother who gloated after he had beaten me up that he would get away with it. He very confidently maintained that my parents would not believe my version of what happened and instead say that I provoked it (which could not have been further from the truth).

If you can get a copy of this book and are a survivor of sibling abuse, get it - regardless of the cost. It is time someone recognized this issue as it is certainly different from abuse from a parent/friend/uncle/etc. It gave me the understanding of what happened to me in my childhood and how it affects me as an adult. I feel validated and now motivated and empowered to get help and heal. I've been in therapy for 20 years and feel like I have learned and understood more in reading this book than the 20 years combined. Very thankful for Dr. Wiehe.
