"A nationally recognized expert on childhood sexual abuse with particular expertise in the treatment of men who were abused as boys, Richard Gartner graces us with his fifth book on this worldwide epidemic. Gartner, a clear and thoughtful writer, has been published widely in psychoanalytic journals, national newspapers, magazines, and has testified at the Markey hearing, where he made a reasoned and impassioned plea for changes in the New York State statute of limitations for reporting childhood sexual abuse. In Healing Sexually Betrayed Men and Boys: Treatment for Sexual Abuse, Assault, and Trauma Gartner brings together experts in the field to address a variety of crucial issues such as: Can sexually abused men find compassion and understanding for the shame and anger they live with? What are the long-term, potentially dire consequences for sexually abused boys as they move through adolescence into manhood? How do therapists and society cope with the male sexual perpetrator whose violence has its roots in unprocessed, dissociated sexual trauma? This volume is a must read for anyone who works in the field of trauma!"-Sheldon Itzkowitz, Ph.D., ABPP, co-editor, The Dissociative Mind in Psychoanalysis: Understanding and Working with Trauma "Healing Sexually Betrayed Men and Boys: Treatment for Sexual Abuse, Assault, and Trauma is a welcome addition to the literature on the victimization of males because the scope of the book is wide and the chapters have depth. The contributors are knowledgeable and well-respected practitioners who see first hand the damage caused by sexual abuse, but also know that healing is possible. It ought to be a part of every training program's library."-Mic Hunter, Psy.D., author, Abused Boys: The Neglected Victims of Sexual Abuse and Honor Betrayed Sexual Abuse In America's Military "For too long, boys and men who have been sexual abused or assaulted have been overlooked, neglected or minimized by society and the health care community. This extremely powerful book is a must read for all mental health professionals who want to right that wrong and deliver trauma-respectful and empowering care to their male patients. In this volume, recognized experts intersperse descriptions of various treatment approaches with clinical cases sharing inspiring stories of healing from the complicated aftermath of sexual betrayal and violation of trust. These males' strengths, courage to confront fears, and reclaim of lost experiences are unforgettably illustrated."-Joan Cook, Ph.D., Yale School of Medicine; 2016 President, Division of Trauma Psychology (Division 56), American Psychological Association "A comprehensive, exhaustive and invaluable resource for understanding the suffering of victimized boys and men... enthusiastically recommended."-Gary Brooks, Ph.D., Co-Founder, APA Division of Men & Masculinity; author, Beyond the Crisis of Masculinity "Richard Gartner is a pioneer in studying the impact of trauma, especially sexual trauma, on men. His first book, Betrayed as Boys, broke new ground twenty years ago. Now, with the release of two new volumes he has broadened the field by including the work of other clinicians struggling with the same challenges, dilemmas, and achievements in working with male survivors of sexual abuse. Grappling with issues of violence and the damage done to boys and men (as well as to girls and women) and the world we live in takes courage and fortitude, but understanding and altering post-traumatic pathways in male development is critical to our shared future."-Sandra L. Bloom, M.D., author, Creating Sanctuary: Toward the Evolution of Sane Societies; co-author, Restoring Sanctuary: A New Operating System for Trauma-Informed Systems of Care
