Written on the cover of the book, it looks like a good book, once I read part of it I will write a review here.

Examines the effects of sexual abuse on the emotional and sexual life of men, including their sense of self and their personal relationships. This book shows that certain reactions are specific to male victims as they attempt to preserve their physical integrity and conceptions of masculinity.



Nearly one male in six has been the victim of sexual abuse during childhood or adolescence, yet this abuse remains a taboo subject, even among victims. In "Don't Tell", Michel Dorais gives the victims a voice, providing a sensitive analysis of their traumas and self-questioning, and offering strategies for coping. "Don't Tell" examines the effects of sexual abuse on the emotional and sexual life of men, including their sense of self and their personal relationships.Using first-hand accounts, Dorais shows that certain reactions are specific to male victims as they attempt to preserve their physical integrity and conceptions of masculinity. He provides innovative strategies for both prevention and treatment that will be of use to those who have suffered abuse as well as to their families and all those who are trying to help them - spouses, friends, social workers, and therapists. Jean-Paul Roger, author of "L'inevitable", reflects on the importance of shared testimony in helping victims come to terms with their abuse and on the ongoing struggle this presents over the course of their lives.

chap 2 starts out:

For a long time, it was thought that sexual abuse of boys was still a marginal phenomonon. That is not so. Within the past few years North American researchers have found that one out of six boys is a victim of sexual abuse. In a Canadian national survey carried that, in a sample of 1,002 Canadian males, 30.6 percent having undergone unwanted sexual acts .....

He goes on to say more and more are willing to come forward so the rate goes up due to more saying I have been abused.

At any rate the book is good and if you can find

Don't Tell by Michel Dorais I would say buy it.

Michael Joseph

I may have to add that to my list. I'm currently reading "Beyond Betrayal" by Richard B. Gartner and William Pollack. I say reading, but "devouring" may be a better word. I'm already halfway through it, and I've only been reading it for a little over a day. smile
