Boys Don't Tell: Ending the Silence of Abuse Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

American society is in the midst of a crisis, an epidemic of violence, secrets and shame. The victims reside in every town, on every street. Finding it easier to remain in denial than to confront this reality, the public minimizes the emotional aftermath of sexual abuse of children and provides few programs to help heal those afflicted. Recounting the author’s journey through a minefield based on his own denial, Boys Don’t Tell takes a subjective look back at a life distorted by the effects of child sexual abuse and offers insight as to why victims find it so difficult to “just get over it and move on.” Through the eyes and emotions of the author, it reveals his abuse as a teenager by a trusted minister and mentor, then recounts years of therapy, a formal complaint to The Church, and a lawsuit settled in mediation. Boys Don’t Tell covers the nature of addictions, their impact, and the difficulty and reward in defeating them. Excruciatingly honest, Boys Don’t Tell creates an openness that can facilitate healing in others. Boys Don’t Tell gives voice to an estimated 20 million male survivors, and offers loved ones, professionals, church and organizational leaders the opportunity to understand the impact of child sexual abuse. As one reader put it, “You have been through so much, conquered so much, lost so much, and still have far to go. I was moved to tears. At times I felt I was eavesdropping. This is a tragic story filled with hope for justice and healing.”

Synopsis:

A subjective look backwards at a life distorted by the affects of child sexual abuse, Boys Don't Tell begins with the author's abuse as a teenager by his trusted minister and mentor. Through the eyes and emotions of the victim, the book goes on to recount three years of therapy, a formal complaint to The Church, and a lawsuit settled in mediation. The nature of addictions, their impact, and the difficulty and reward in defeating them is explored on a most personal level. Boys Don't Tell focuses on dealing with the emotional aftermath and societal response to sexual abuse. It gives insight as to why victims of CSA find it so difficult to just get over it and move on.
