Child sexual abuse (CSA) survivor Eric Jones details the personal devastation that results from being sexually violated as a child. Yet the book offers genuine hope for fellow survivors—that they can undertake a dynamic, personally-significant, and successful journey toward healing from their past trauma and pain.

In the first part of the book, Jones shares his own CSA story—offering examples of the many abuse-related aftereffects experienced during his childhood and adult life. This is followed by information on the topic of child sexual abuse, including disturbing statistics and important facts on the practice of grooming, trauma-induced brain development, and the mental and physical health challenges that plague millions of CSA survivors worldwide.

Jones advocates for survivors, lovingly encouraging them to seek healing through the use of talk therapy, the expressive arts, and other helpful recovery methods and resources. He highlights what has worked on his own mountain climb toward healing.

The book ends where it begins—with hope for robust healing when CSA survivors choose to begin an impactful, restorative journey of personal discovery.

Passionately advocating for prevention of child sexual abuse and robust survivor support is the most satisfying and rewarding work of his life!
