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.

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.

Blog Review For: GMTA
"Child Molestation Stores: Voices of Survivors" by Dr. Lynn Daugherty was very informative read. This was the first time I have ever read anything like this so and I thought Dr. Daugherty did a good job at conveying to us about just what is Child Sexual Abuse.
How the survivors shared there stores of rape, molestation and incest was very real and I know it will help someone out there that may need to know that they are not alone in these situations. There is help out there for you!
The book has three main chapters: 1. Stories from victims of child abuse....chapter 2. Questions and answers about child sexual abuse and chapter 3. Choosing a professional counselor. All of these chapters were good especially chapter 1 and 2 and even chapter 3 in guidance selection is very important too. Questions like (why me?) and answers to those type of questions are discussed in this read.
This information that is told and given is very easy to read and informative. I believe a teenager around 16+ could really understand this read. This read can be very helpful for that person that has been in any of these situations.
Since this novel "Child Molestation Stories: Voices of Survivors" was written for the victims of child sexual abuse... who are now teenagers or adults ... families, friends, counselors and others who would like to help them is why it is very important to have this type of important material available.
This novel is not a very long read but one will find very helpful and to the point and I would recommend this book as a good read.
