“Silence and shame all too often describe the struggling lives of so many male survivors of sexual abuse. In Naming Our Abuse, these survivors step away from the world of silence and boldly speak about their unspeakable journeys with the hope that their collective voices will empower others who are suffering in silence and shame. These powerful stories bring us that much closer to shattering the silence and shame that has choked the lives of too many for too long.” — Boz Tchividjian, executive director, GRACE

“The trauma caused by childhood neglect, sexual or domestic abuse and war wreaks havoc in our bodies, says Bessel van der Kolk in The Body Keeps the Score. . . .

Packed with science and human stories, the book is an intense read. . . . [T]he struggle and resilience of his patients is very moving.”
