Review of Victims no longer: Men recovering from incest and other sexual child abuse.

Résumé :

Reviews the book, Victims no longer: Men recovering from incest and other sexual child abuse by Mike Lew (1990). This review is an attempt to answer two principal questions: (a) Is the book successful at informing a curious, but generally naive, therapist about an important clinical topic? (b) Is the book one that could be recommended to appropriate clients? The book's jacket implies that the work has value for therapists, but generally it portrays the book to be primarily "self-help" in nature. Despite this emphasis the book may still have utility for therapists because of its substantial consciousness-raising impact. Given the book's self-help mission, the more important issue is whether therapists can comfortably recommend it to clients and families. The reviewer thinks the answer is yes, but not without a few reservations. Reservations aside, though, the book may be useful for many clients and their family members. The chapters on masculinity and victimization, and men and feelings are superb. Many of the vignettes are moving and inspirational. The chapters on selecting therapy and a therapist are very well written. As a self-help resource this book will have considerable utility, particularly with more gender-enlightened populations.
