?The most practical, down to earth, thoughtful, and sensitive book written on women's childhood sexual abuse.'?Samuel C. Klagsbrun, MD

From the psychotherapist who offered groundbreaking work on self-mutilation (Cutting) comes a landmark examination of the psychology of sexual abuse. Stolen Tomorrows encourages the 20 percent of women who have been abused to think about, talk about, and seek help for what has been their secret shame. In addition to giving therapists and other helpers an empathic insight, Stolen Tomorrows will enable the survivor to recognize herself in both her personal history and her current struggle to overcome the legacy of abuse.

?Stolen Tomorrows is a masterful chronicle of a sexually abused woman's journey from abuse and despair to hope and recovery. With sensitivity and compassion, the Leven#65533;krons use poignant clinical vignettes to educate the reader and let her know she is not alone. This book will change the lives of women who have been victims of sexual abuse. Bravo.'?Roy Shapiro, PhD, Lenox Hill Hospital, New York

This book was very helpful. I do however, have one major objection. The author consistently make personal judgement about the severity of an individuals... for example, saying one case has more right to be in trauma then another case example. As far as I know... this boarders on unethical.
