"How men can identify, understand, and address the many consequences of rape"--Cover.
Includes index.
Summary, etc.:
"Rape is, unfortunately, an all-too-common violent crime usually perpetrated against women. For victims, the process of sharing information about the assault with loves ones or reporting the crime to police can be harrowing, embarrassing, and painful. The emotional aftermath and the responses of others can greatly affect the way a rape survivor copes. Although there are trained counselors to help women through the process of recovery, the question remains: What role should the men in their lives play? Often the men who are closest to rape survivors--intimate partners, friends, and family members--are simply unprepared to offer the right assistance. The wrong word or action may trigger an unexpected response. The book When The Subject Is Rape, written by Dr. Alan McEvoy, is designed specifically for men to help them identify, understand, and respond appropriately in their role as allies in a woman's recovery from rape"-- Provided by publisher.
