Bancroft, a former codirector of Emerge, the first U.S. program for abusive men, and a 15-year veteran of work with abusive men, reminds readers that each year in this country, two to four million women are assaulted by their partners and that at least one out of three American women will be a victim of violence by a husband or boyfriend at some point in her life. His valuable resource covers early warning signs, ten abusive personality types, the abusive mentality, problems with getting help from the legal system, and the long, complex process of change. After dispelling 17 myths about abusive personalities, he sheds light on the origin of the abuser's values and beliefs, which he finds to be a better explanation of abusive behavior than reference to psychological problems. Bancroft extends his approach to problematic gay and lesbian relationships as well, making the book that much more useful and empowering. This is essential reading for those in the helping professions and highly recommended for all libraries, especially those in communities with emergency shelter programs. – Review from Library Journal

Nearly three-quarters of women who are chronically mistreated by their partners have children. In this sensitive, respectful book, counselor, speaker, trainer and activist Bancroft gives those women ways to help their children heal from the pain of seeing such abuse. Using anecdotes, Q&As, bulleted "points to remember" and a caring but firm tone, Bancroft tells abused mothers exactly what actions they should take to help their children. Don’t blame children (or yourself), he says, and let children know it’s good to talk about the verbal or physical abuse they’ve been exposed to. Bancroft coaches moms to tell their children abuse is wrong, but warns them not to criticize the abuser as a person if he is a father-figure to the children. Bancroft’s important book addresses peripheral issues, too, such as the effects of separation and divorce, and dealing with child protective services and the family court system. – Review from Publishers Weekly

The Stop Child Molestation Book has been called "groundbreaking", "hard-hitting", and "a must read for every family in America". What makes this a break-through book is its plan of action to put an end to child molestation. Using new facts from their study of 16,000 people, Gene G. Abel, M.D. and Nora Harlow urge families to take three powerful steps to protect their children.
"We want to stop child molestation in the United States before we die. Only a few years ago that goal seemed laughable. Now, the breakthroughs in testing, medicine, and therapies will stop the people who molest children. Child molestation - with its at least 39 million adult survivors and more than three million child victims - can end. The problem we face is getting the word out. Everything you need to know is in this book. We ask you read it. We ask you tell others. And, we ask you to become a hero and step forward to protect the children closest to you."
Only $15, which includes sales tax and shipping.
