As a specialist in post-traumatic stress disorder, Aphrodite Matsakis, Ph.D., has counseled thousands of clients ranging from combat veterans to victims of crime and abuse and other traumatic events. She conducts a private psychotherapy practice specializing in post-traumatic stress disorder and child abuse.
"In her latest book, the Rape Recovery Handbook,
Matsakis has again demonstrated a unique level of compassion and
concern for rape victims and their capacity for healing. While
guiding her reader gently through numerous exercises specially
designed for maximum effect, Dr. Matsakis provides illumination
into thought processes that often trap victims into believing that
they are beyond hope. Gentle, empathetic advice, along with a
sincere belief that rape victims can restore their self-esteem and
become rap survivors living full, joyful lives, make this book
indispensable to both victim and therapist alike!"
