When a Man You Love Was Abused: A Woman’s Guide to Helping Him Overcome Childhood Sexual Molestation
by Cecil Murphey, 2010
Written for Christian wives and girlfriends of men who were sexually abused as children, by a best-selling Christian minister and author, this book is a gift – full of insights, wisdom and practical advice. In the first part, “Who He Is,” Murphey writes with great clarity and compassion, and without judgment, about his own experiences of abuse and healing, as well as the experiences of many other men he knows. The second part, “How You Can Help Him,” provides practical and caring advice on more than 20 key topics, including “Accept His Unspeakable Problem,” “Accept His Pain,” “Respect His Privacy,” and “Let Him Move at His Own Pace.” Though written for Christians, any non-Christian who is OK with occasional (thoughtful) references to God, Jesus and prayer can benefit greatly from this book.
