To the Survivors: One Man’s Journey as a Rape Crisis Counselor with True Stories of Sexual Violence by Robert Uttaro (Book Review #737)

Advertisements

To the survivors is a book written about sexual abuse for young adults. The self-help book’s narrative is told by a rape crisis counsellor, retelling the survivors’ true stories. The stories are uncensored and authentic to the word. They contain a sensitive and descriptive voice and vary from age, ethnicity, and gender.

The content is profoundly touching and is not for the lighthearted. As you read along, you tend to feel various emotions, but above all, feel some light for each individual. Just knowing that regardless of the hardship and horrible encounter, the victim finds peace and heals were very satisfying to read.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The literature was easy to read and to understand.

The book is more useful to people who want to work in crisis management centres, become counsellors, and are psychology majors.

However, anyone could also read the book and have a better understanding of how difficult it is to go through such a journey and to endure.

I admired the author’s reason for becoming a counsellor and appreciated his nature of wanting to help. I look forward to reading more from this author.
