Victims No Longer: The Classic Guide for Men Recovering from Sexual Child Abuse

"Victims No Longer still stands as the most important resource for men healing from past sexual abuse. Comprehensive, compassionate, and clear, it offers hope and direction for men reclaiming personal power and creating healthy relationships."
-Wendy Maltz, M.S.W., author of The Sexual Healing Journey

The first book written specifically for men, Victims No Longer examines the changing cultural attitudes toward male survivors of incest and other sexual trauma. Now, in an expanded Second Edition, this invaluable resource continues to offer compassionate and practical advice, supported by personal anecdotes and statements of male survivors. Victims No Longer helps survivors to:

* Identify and validate their childhood experiences
* Explore strategies of survival and healing
* Establish a support network for continued personal recovery
* Make choices that aren't determined by abuse

Thoroughly updated and revised, and including an expanded Resources section, Victims No Longer educates survivors and professionals about the recovery process - speaking to the pain, needs, fears, and hopes of the adult male survivor.

Leaping upon the Mountains: Men Proclaiming Victory Over Sexual Child Abuse

"As therapists, survivors, allies, or simply caring humans, it is essential to contradict destructive ideas; we must search for messages that reflect the reality of human strength, caring, resilience, courage, creativity and love. I'm not suggesting denial; we cannot ignore grim realities of life. But there is far more to human existence than unhappiness. The world is richly beautiful, infinitely diverse - and so are we." — Mike Lew, from Leaping upon the Mountains

When the groundbreaking Victims No Longer was released in 1988, it challenged widespread misconceptions about male victimization. This revolutionary work continues to provide hope, understanding and essential advice for healing to the millions of men who are survivors of boyhood sexual trauma and those who care about them.

Leaping upon the Mountains, Mike Lew's long-awaited second book focuses on the reality of recovery. Its information comes directly from the experts - male survivors who have engaged in a visible process of change - courageously, persistently, and triumphantly.

Presenting the first real investigation of what male survivors themselves identify as most important during various stages of their recovery, Leaping upon the Mountains contains powerfully moving contributions from hundreds of men of all ages and backgrounds throughout the United States and 45 other countries.

Readers of Leaping upon the Mountains will discover:

  • Insights and resources for all stages of recovery
  • Encouraging and inspiring messages from other male survivors
  • A large updated resource section providing concrete help to survivors and professionals
  • Ways of reconnecting with their own strength and creativity

This book is about the successes. Its contributors speak eloquently and persuasively of the reality of recovery.

It is not a work of fiction, but a compilation of many truths, many realities - a quilt, pieced together from men's experiences - forming an impressively triumphant pattern. Taken together, they state, lucidly and forcefully, that recovery work produces changes that are real, important, and permanent. Leaping upon the Mountains is a celebration of successful recovery.
