9780615209661: Resurrection After Rape: A guide to transforming from victim to survivor

Updated 2013 Edition! Expanded with new content! From the resurrectionafterrape website: Looking for a book about rape that's not depressing or boring, but doesn't avoid deeper emotions and questions either? Resurrection After Rape is a deeply-moving, powerful guide for women recovering from rape. What sets this apart from other books on rape is that this one isn't written only by a therapist; it's a collaboration between a therapist (and a male, at that!), and dozens of rape survivors who contribute their insights, journals, and art. Reading this book is like having your own room full of women who have succeeded in rape recovery, all of whom offer their guidance. Issues addressed include shame, depression, substance abuse, self-injury, spirituality, medical care, PTSD, flashbacks, and panic attacks. Contains the journals, art, and stories of dozens of women who have successfully recovered from rape. This is not a book of cliches and superficial suggestions; it acknowledges the real anguish of rape trauma while offering real hope and answers through the first-person narratives of dozens of women who have actually used its methods to recover.

About the Author:

Matt Atkinson is a Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Professional. As the Director of a state sexual assault program he has helped develop twelve new new rape crisis programs, including training of nurses, therapists, advocates, and law enforcement. He has worked as a YWCA staff director in prevention of domestic and sexual violence, and he has developed and implemented programs with women's prisons, university sports teams, churches, and Indian tribes. In 2004, he became the first male given the National Award for Outstanding Advocacy and Community Work in Ending Sexual Violence by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center. In 2005 he was awarded Most Therapeutic by his professional peers at a mental health treatment facility. In 2006 he began to teach college courses on domestic violence and crisis intervention as an adjunct professor at Oklahoma State University-OKC. He also regularly presents trainings at workshops and conferences nationwide. Matt has degrees in Art/Human Physiology, Behavioral Science, and a Master's in Clinical Social Work from Oklahoma University.

Review:

I am a rape survivor and it is in my role as such that I have come to know Matt Atkinson. Matt is one of those rare individuals who brings to his work not only a tremendous intellect and vast knowledge of this subject matter, but more importantly a depth of compassion for and understanding of the experiences of rape survivors, the likes of which exist in no other individual I have ever encountered. This community is lucky to have Matt serving as an advocate and therapist for those who have often felt forgotten, betrayed, weak, misunderstood, or even worthless. I know this because I have felt each of those and more. However, it is by way of Matt s patience and unwavering kindness that I am now able to see myself not as any of those things, but as a survivor. I will know this now for the rest of my life. --Victoria Bailey, Attorney

There is no way to describe how much this book has meant to me. I am trying to gather and absorb as much as I can. I have struggled many years with what happened to me, and sometimes I feel like I have gone nowhere. But, when someone like Matt, who knows what kind of work this actually is, recognizes the effort, it makes me proud of what I have accomplished. I have to admit, I was skeptical. I'm not used to a male being the kind of person who could really understand this. But I had been to therapist after therapist, and none of it was helping. Matt's methods worked--boy, did they work!--and I can't imagine I could have found the same recovery using any other way. This man knows his stuff. He really gets it. And what he's written is SO true and it really answered my questions. There is no way to describe how much this book has meant to me. I am trying to gather and absorb as much as I can.

Matt brings his years of experience working in the sexual violence field to a new audience. His understanding of the intricacies of working with those affected by sexual violence as well as his therapeutic knowledge will be helpful to counselors and anyone who wants to support victims and survivors of sexual violence. --Jennifer McLaughlin, Sexual assault specialist with the Oklahoma Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault
