In this new handbook, an expert in the treatment of PTSD helps rape victims cope with the reality of the experience and deal with the aftermath of conflicting and debilitating feelings.

Recovery begins by establishing a safety plan that includes what to expect from recovery, and an understanding of how to treat your self during recovery.

Learn how to develop a community and supportive network to assist you during the journey and cope with the anxiety and anger that often arise during this process.

Understand how sexual assault can affect many aspects of life.

Shatter myths about sexual assault and examine how the experience can change relationships.

The final part of the book facilitates the mental reconstruction of the assault to diffuse its emotional power.

Counter irrational beliefs, find inner reserves of strength and energy, and regain personal power.
