Excellent read for professionals, survivors or friends/family of a survivor. This book discuss the aftermath of rape, rape kit exams as well as the court procedures. This book will help survivors to emotionally prepare for the daunting court procedures.

However, case studies are described in-depth, which can lead to vicarious trauma or traumatize the survivor even more.

Like the Grapes of Wrath, nobody should really have to read this book, but unfortunately, the United States is far from Utopia (or tribal cultures who honor women and don't place such a high value on dominance). In any case, very helpful if you've ever been in the situation 25% of women have been, if you have a friend who has been assaulted, or a loved one. Although I think this should be on the summer reading list for upcoming college freshman, so they'll never put anyone through it.

Very good basic handbook on the tasks of recovery from rape. Good for treating professionals as well as survivors and their family and friends. The main gap in this book is that it neglects the specific issues faced by male rape survivors.
