The title of the review is, I survived child abuse for years — here’s what everyone gets wrong about it, but, I, and probably most other psychologists, cannot be part of “everyone.”
This informative, interesting little essay in Readers’ Digest sets out exactly my understanding of child abuse. Do read it — but also read my short story Armour-Coating Our Kids, and if you haven’t already, my novel, Hit and Run. Both of these carry the same lessons.
And keep your eyes open for opportunities to lead victimised kids to a good life.
