Barbara Bean and Shari Bennett validate the conflicting emotions aroused by sexual abuse and offer these adolescents simple, concrete advice about reporting the abuse and how to seek counseling.
The Me Nobody Knows is unique in that it is a book for teenagers in therapy that have been victims of sexual abuse, as well as for therapists treating these teenagers. Through written, visual, and relaxation exercises, the book shows survivors how to begin to cope.
