Victims of rape often suffer from symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. This handbook helps rape victims cope with the reality of the experience and deal with the aftermath of conflicting feelings. By learning to mentally reconstruct the assault, victims counter irrational beliefs, find inner reserves of strength, and regain personal power.

"In her latest book, the" Rape Recovery Handbook", Matsakis has again demonstrated a unique level of compassion and concern for rape victims and their capacity for healing. While guiding her reader gently through numerous exercises specially designed for maximum effect, Dr. Matsakis provides illumination into thought processes that often trap victims into believing that they are beyond hope. Gentle, empathetic advice, along with a sincere belief that rape victims can restore their self-esteem and become rap survivors living full, joyful lives, make this book indispensable to both victim and therapist alike!"
