Abstract:

A long overdue book by a psychologist who has extensive clinical experience treating male victims of child sexual abuse, it explodes the myth that sexual abuse of male children is rare, or that the consequences are less serious than for girls. Hunter examines the physical and emotional impact of abuse on its victims and the factors affecting revovery. With personal case histories of victims and their families, this is a powerfully written and meticulously researched book that is a landmark in the field of child sexual abuse literature.

"The sexual abuse of boys is a problem that has remained veiled in myth and misinformation for far too long. While the sexual abuse of female children has been widely documented, there are lingering assumptions that the sexual abuse of male children is rare, that the consequences are less serious than for girls, and even that boys share responsibility with their perpetrators. In this long overdue book, psychologist Mic Hunter, who has extensive clinical experience treating male victims of child sexual abuse, explodes these and other myths and offers an overview of the recovery process. After defining exactly what sexual abuse is, Hunter examines the physical and emotional impact of abuse on its victims, and the factors affecting adult recovery. Abused Boys includes the stories of adult men and their loved ones. who describe the experience of childhood abuse, the aftereffects that last well into adulthood, and the steps they took to begin to heal themselves. For all of these men, summoning the courage to reveal the trauma of their childhood abuse was the crucial breakthrough that led to their recovery--especially when they had to challenge the false view that men sexually abused as children will become abusers themselves. Powerfully written and meticulously researched, Abused Boys is a landmark in the field of child sexual abuse literature. Like The Courage to Heal, Abused Boys is a book that helps survivors find the hope and strength to recover and to lead fulfilled adult lives. For all men who were themselves abused as boys, for their relatives and partners, and for all professionals who counsel these men, Abused Boys is absolutely essential reading."--Back cover.
