Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Very different from each other in content and in style, these two good books offer complementary approaches to an issue much in the news these days: child abuse in its physical, sexual, psychological, and spiritual incarnations. Richard Rhodes, himself a survivor of childhood abuse by a stepmother, with his wife, Ginger, present their interviews with some 20 other survivors of childhood abuse organized in 15 chapters with titles such as "Murder of the Body or the Soul," "It Affects You All Your Life," and "What Do Normal People Do?" Through these clear texts, we learn what abuse is from the very people who suffered it and how they surmounted the horrors. Rushford, a nurse and counselor who has worked with abused children and researched and written on the subject, presents us with a manual on preventing and dealing with child abuse. Besides carefully defining what abuse is, she outlines how children develop so that parents may have appropriate expectations. Rushford also gives advice on effective discipline and on how to deal with a difficult child. In a limited way, Rushford includes her Christian faith as part of her approach. These books should prove helpful to all who are touched by the problem of child abuse and who want children to be and feel valued: counselors, teachers, parents who want to avoid repeating abuse they may have experienced, and many others.John Moryl, Yeshiva Univ. Lib., New York
